Auburn University Internship Program in Dublin

Study and intern in Dublin! Ireland's capital is a cosmopolitan city with much to offer and a delightful and friendly community. The program is based at Griffith College, where students will enjoy fully equipped classrooms, campus lodging, and cafeteria. This is an ongoing program that has openings each semester and is offered through CAPA International Education. Students studying in Dublin can take advantage of an extensive network of internship sites, offering placements most often for the following academic tracks:

  • The Creative Arts
  • Exploring the Media
  • Human Rights, Crime and Journalism
  • Globalization and International Trends in Business and Society

Courses at Griffith College are also organized within the above four tracks or themes. Students will be able to choose courses across these suggested tracks subject to timetabling, pre-requisites, and availability. A course developed by Griffith faculty, Irish History and Culture: The Evolution of the Irish Nation, is also highly recommended.
