Global Perspectives Through the Narratives of Ireland
This program is an innovative, interactive program for students who wish to enhance their cultural competency and become a global scholar. It was designed by the Institute of Study Abroad Ireland in association with Central Community College.
How the Program Works
The program uses the history and culture of Ireland, past and present, as a platform for an intensive comparative study across the disciplines of history, literature, social justice, environment and sustainability, business, politics, social studies and leisure.
Learn About Our Shared Narratives
Ireland's multifaceted history includes narratives of colonization, displacement, emigration, civil rights movements, conflict resolution, peace building and the challenge of building better in the 21st century. All of these events provide us with excellent material for comparative and critical thinking about ourselves, our community, and our past, present and future.
Empathy, Cultural Competency and Knowledge
Each of the modules in this course is based on core values of empathy, cultural awareness, social justice and environmental responsibility. You'll engage with each of the classes through creative assignments that will develop intercultural skills and global experiences. These are invaluable in life as well as your future or current career path, but more importantly, make you a more informed and educated world citizen.
