APSU in Ireland

Ireland Spring Break

Spring Break • Criminal Justice • Open to all Majors • Undergraduate 

Program Overview

Come experience the beauty, history, and culture of Ireland with APSU during Spring Break. This course will take students to both the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland (UK). There we will visit sites important to the strife ridden history of Ireland and the eventual resolution of those conflicts. At Newgrange we will see ancient monuments older than the pyramids. At Malahide castle we will see how Norman and then English invaders kept watch over their subjects, and how “outside The Pale” of the greater Dublin area local Celtic Lords continued to wield power.  At Kilmainham Jail we will see where the founding fathers of Ireland awaited trial & execution for treason. At the Trinity College library we will see Ireland’s “Declaration of Independence” and its reference to supporters in the US. At Falls Road in Belfast we will learn of “The Troubles” between Catholic & Protestants which started on “Sunday, Bloody Sunday”. And at Stormont House we will see how a lasting peace was made between the IRA terrorist organization and the British.

Credit Hours and Courses

3 credit hours for CRJ 4030 Comparative Criminal Justice. An online portion of the course will be taught during the 1st 8-weeks of Spring Semester (Downtown Campus) & the Spring I term (Ft. Campbell) prior to leaving for the field study in Ireland. No prerequisites are required for this course and all majors are welcome!
CRJ majors & CRJ/PM minors: This class can substitute for an appropriate required major classes in the Criminal Justice Homeland Security Concentration or for CRJ and Public Management minors should the student require the credit for graduation. Please see Dr. Wright (conatct information below) for any substitution requests.

Lodging and Meals

Students will stay at short-term rental apartments in the heart of Dublin. Each student will have their own bed but will have roommates. Apartments will have full refrigerator, kitchen, bath, and most likely a washing machine. Students will receive a per diem meal stipend paid in advance as part of the overall program related costs.
