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 3-6 credits, choosing from one of two CAPA-led courses and a 3 credit internship OR a 3-6 credit internship (with approval from their SU academic department). Summer students must complete a minimum of 120 work hours in the internship placement (3 credits).
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 off-campus apartments within commuting distance of the CAPA Dublin Center. Amenities include living area, kitchen, bathroom, internet and laundry facilities. Alternatively, students can choose to live in an Irish homestay (includes breakfast).
