Brandywine program offers chance to study in Ireland

Penn State Brandywine Global Programs will send students on a distance learning and immersion study adventure in Ireland that includes visits to Galway, Belfast and Dublin from March 2 to 10.

Students who register by Nov. 22 will receive a $50 discount.

Brandywine’s Global Programs courses combine focused academic studies with immersion experiences abroad. That means there will be instruction and assignments to be completed prior to travel, as well as during and after.

Courses available for the Ireland program include Popular Culture and Folk Life (AM ST 105) with instructors Patricia Hillen and Patricia O’Brien; Interpersonal Skills for Tomorrow’s Leaders (AEE 201) with Director of Student Affairs Matthew Shupp; Plants, Places and People (BIOL 120A) with instructor Brian Barringer; Wellness Theory (KINES 081) with instructor Barbara Rostick; and Global Marketing (MKTG 445/MKTG497) with instructor Lori Elias. Each class is worth three credits.

Students will visit the breathtaking Cliffs of Moher and Belfast Castle, among other sites and side excursions.
