Dublin Program

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. Temple Dublin is a partnership program offered between SMC Study Away and between Foundation for International Education (FIE), which operates its Dublin program in partnership with various universities in the city.  Classrooms and housing are located in Central Dublin.
