This will be the fourth year that the University of Toronto has offered a summer course in Ireland. Students will earn a full-year Political Science credit in four weeks while living and learning in Maynooth, the country’s only university town. This course will benefit students interested in understanding the nature and impact of conflict, with special reference to the Irish experience.
The summer program in Ireland is hosted by the National University of Ireland Maynooth, more commonly known as Maynooth University. Maynooth University was formally established as an autonomous university in 1997, yet traces its origins to the foundation of the Royal College of St. Patrick in 1795, making it, simultaneously, Ireland’s youngest university and one of its oldest educational institutions. Students will be housed in an on-campus residence, and the campus is well serviced by bus and rail routes.
