- Program Terms: Summer
Many have been inspired by Ireland’s captivating culture and lush greenery including James Joyce, Oscar Wilde, and George Bernard Shaw to name a few. Dublin is a unique mixture of both old and new with ancient castles alongside modern architecture, and colorful doorways on top of cobblestone streets. Once you experience the majesty of Dublin’s beauty, you will understand why so many artists, authors, and musicians have called it home.
Dublin is the European headquarters for many of the world’s largest technology corporations and is very supportive in fostering the growth of smaller companies. The city is a great bustling, business hub and is a dynamic place to share ideas, create new ventures, and grow existing businesses. This makes an international internship in Dublin an ideal location. Though it may be brimming with Irish culture and history, Dublin is very much an international city bustling with people from all over the world and featuring multinational companies offering terrific opportunities in entrepreneurship, marketing, non-profits, and law. Dublin is a fantastic city for both first time travelers and seasoned veterans, and is within close proximity to the rest of Europe for your weekend travels.
The Global Education office has partnered with Global Experiences to provide Mason students an internship experience in Dublin, Ireland. Unlike traditional study abroad programs focusing on one particular subject, internship programs include students from different majors, working and studying in the same location. The student’s internship placement within a company relative to their area of study defines their global work experience, and determines the internship course credit the student will receive. For example, a Dublin internship program can include (but is not limited to) students majoring in government and policy, global affairs, engineering, business and economics, communications, marketing, accounting, and tourism.
Students can choose from two housing options for their summer in Dublin. Griffith College is centrally located, less than a mile from St. Stephen’s Green and central shopping area. Students will reside in twin shared rooms on campus, and is ideal for those seeking a central city feel.
Alternatively, single room options in shared 4-5 bed apartments are available at University College Dublin’s main campus, located just a few miles south of downtown Dublin. It is a beautifully landscaped 300-acre campus with modern facilities that include a sports and fitness center with a pool, library, cinema, restaurants and cafes, convenience store, and bike storage. Students have an easy 15-minute bus ride to the center of town.
