Freshman Irish Studies Program

When people ask you which school you will be attending… Say Taylor University.

When they ask you where it is located… Say Ireland!

This incredible opportunity allows you to spend your first college semester studying in Ireland.  In the Freshman Irish Studies Program, you will experience:

A unique academic opportunity 
15 credit hours of coursework taught by Taylor University and Irish professors
A unique cultural opportunity  
Fully immersed - Irish history - Irish customs - Irish food - Irish people
A unique Christian community  
Recognizing that it is bound by saving grace and not a campus perimeter

For the last decade, Taylor has housed the Irish Studies Program in Greystones, CO Wicklow.  Located an hour south of the capital city of Dublin, Greystones is a small, safe community set along the Irish Sea.  This will serve as your base of operations for the semester, as you and your Taylor friends will spend extensive time traveling through the beautiful country of Ireland.

"The most beautiful moment of traveling abroad is the surreal instant when you realize that this strange and beautiful land has become your home, and the strangers who surround you have become your family."
