Studying in Dublin

Dublin is a large and sophisticated European city on the cutting edge of innovations in architecture, design, film and music. It’s also an extremely young, modern metropolis, with a large percentage of residents younger than 30 years old.

During the “Celtic Tiger” economic boom of the early 1990s, Ireland’s capital drastically changed as its cultural scene and population became increasingly diverse. Dublin is now an incubator for artistic and multimedia innovation; home to headquarters of Google, Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo, LinkedIn, eBay, PayPal and IBM earning the city the nickname, ‘Europe’s Silicon Valley' and making it a great place to study and explore media and communication.

Students will be enrolled in the School of Communications at Dublin City University (DCU) taking classes alongside other international and Irish students. The School of Communications has been leading in media communication in Ireland for over 20 years and is the largest department focused on media in Europe. DCU is internationally recognized as one of the top young universities and it continues to grow as a leader in higher education.

Students interested in spending their summer in Dublin can do so every other year through our International Urban Storytelling program. Visit the International Urban Storytelling program section of this site for more information.
