Dublin is a modern metropolis, a large and sophisticated European city on the cutting edge of innovations in film, design, music, and architecture. Since the economic boom of the early 1990s earned this capital city the nickname of the “Celtic Tiger,” its population is increasingly multicultural and its cultural scene has an international flavor, an incubator for artistic and multimedia innovation. The city’s Temple Bar area on the “Left Bank” boasts an arts complex and trendy new restaurants and galleries, frequented by the city’s inhabitants, half of whom are under age 30.
The host institution for the Temple Dublin program will be the Institute for the International Education of Students (IES), which works with many major American universities to provide education space and student housing in some 40 countries. Their classrooms are in central Dublin.

Rachael Ferver Temple Dublin Summer 2007; Major: Advertising
“I have always wanted to study abroad, but it wasn’t until I saw Temple’s Dublin Program that I knew where. Ireland’s tone was so vastly different from that of the United States. The opportunity to be exposed to another culture in a learning environment ensured that I took as much as possible away with me when I left. During the summer month I spent there, studying media, I fell in love with their way of life. Studying abroad is something I recommend everyone do, and Temple Dublin was an experience I will never forget and often miss.”
