The SU in Ireland Internship Program is a partnership between Stevenson University and CAPA The Global Education Network. Founded in 1972, CAPA operates education centers in six cities around the globe and provides distinct academic offerings, support frameworks, and oversight structures for students and visiting faculty. Stevenson's relationship with the CAPA Dublin Center allows our students to gain substantive work experience and cross-cultural skills in a variety of fields relevant to their program of study. The Center is hosted at Griffith College, a private Irish college located close to the Dublin city center.
Students take between 12-18 credits, choosing from CAPA-led courses and/or taking Griffith College courses within the following thematic tracks:
Exploring the Media
Human Rights, Crime and Journalism
Globalization and International Trends in Business and Society
The internship course can be taken for 3 or 6 credits (with approval from the SU academic department) in conjunction with an internship placement. The 3 credit option requires a minimum of 180 work hours during the semester, and the 6 credit options requires at least 240 work hours.
Internships are available in the following fields (additional options may be available upon request):
Transcripts are issued by CAPA's School of Record, the State University of New York (SUNY) at Oswego.
Students stay in shared on-campus 4-person, 2-bedroom apartments containing a living area, kitchen, two bathrooms, internet and laundry facilities. Alternatively, students can choose to live in an Irish homestay (includes breakfast).
