UA in Ireland: Geography of Europe 


Ireland, with its long history of occupation, colonization, invasion, emigration and immigration, together with its diverse geology, geomorphology, culture, history and heritage is an ideal location to study the intricacies of human-earth relationships in a dynamic modern setting. Located on the western most edge of Europe, and a member of the European Union, Ireland welcomes over 11 million visitors each year and during the last decades has evolved into a forward-thinking center of globalism and multiculturalism.
This course is designed to immerse each student in all things Irish, past and present, and through readings, field visits, excursions and exposure to the Irish people and culture, develop an understanding of the complexity, interdisciplinary, and global interconnections that exist in Ireland and throughout our global community.
