An exclusive opportunity to work with a member of Irish Parliament and get first hand experience in the world of Irish and European politics. This is a truly once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and is part of a longstanding partnership between Arcadia and the Institute of Public Administration, a recognized college of University College Dublin focused on civil and public sector development. This program is the only one of its kind which allows American undergraduates to intern in both houses of the Irish Parliament.
The placement requires two to three full days per week conducting surveys, researching and reporting on issues and preparing press briefs. Additionally, you will enroll in an internship reflection course and three Irish culture courses.
Arcadia is a nationally recognized leader in higher education, offering exceptional study, research and internship experiences for students from colleges and universities across the US. Our unique combination of customized, diverse academic programming and comprehensive support allows students to explore new worlds, get to know themselves, boost their resumes for future job opportunities and graduate school, and experience the incredible growth and shifts in perspective that a culturally immersive experience can deliver.
