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.

Since the economic boom of the early 1990s earned Ireland’s capital the nickname “Celtic Tiger,” its cultural scene and population have become increasingly diverse. Dublin is now an incubator for artistic and multimedia innovation, making it a great place to study and explore media and communication.

Klein College Study Away offers three separate Dublin programs.
