Study Literature Abroad

Take your English education to new places.

Adelphi students have the opportunity to study abroad for one semester or for the whole academic year nearly anywhere in the world.

There are also trips during intersession, spring break, and summer sessions that are led by Adelphi faculty. These short-term programs often focus on community service and/or specific academic areas such as business, arts, sciences, social work, or healthcare.

Literary Cities: New York AND Dublin

Ireland is an enchanting country with a vibrant culture and a unique literary history. In March 2017, students from all majors will have the chance to travel to Ireland to explore and experience its culture as part of a unique faculty-led study abroad experience.

The weeklong trip is woven into a 3-credit, semester-long Literary Cities course in the Department of English. Students in the course will examine the Irish immigrant experience in New York and the origins of American Irish identity in Dublin.

During the semester, students will participate in weekly classes at Adelphi’s Manhattan Center and will have the opportunity to read classical Irish texts and tour the Irish monuments of New York City.

Led by professors Lahney Preston-Matto, PhD, and Louise Geddes, PhD, this course is just the first of many planned faculty-led “literary cities” courses that will take students abroad as part of the curriculum.
