Located in vibrant downtown Dublin, students will find the location ideal for accessing vast resources and engaging in academic study with the 17,000 students at Trinity.
One of Europe's oldest cities, Dublin is the cultural center and heart of Ireland. With its rich literary heritage, ancient buildings and modern architecture, and an energetic music scene and theater life, Dublin offers a vibrant mix of historic charm and cutting-edge culture. The past 20 years have seen Dublin transform itself into a modern, thriving, affluent European capital.
Students must take 30 ECTS credits (15 JHU credits) per semester.
Students who study abroad at Trinity College may select from the wide range of courses offered through the Broad Curriculum, the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, and the Faculty of Engineering, Mathematics and Science. Students also have the unique advantage of pursuing independent research as part of their course load.
Students will need to have courses pre-approved for major/minor credits and earn the equivalent of a C or better in order to transfer credits back to Hopkins. Grades will not appear on the JHU transcript or factor into the GPA.
Every five years, CASA proposes to carry out a themed research project whose focus strongly resonates across each of the Divisional Center locations. The theme for 2018-2023 is Historical Memory. Learn More
