One of the many ways Carlow University links to its Irish roots is through study abroad programs and cultural events.
Through the Business Education Initiative, Carlow is able to send three students to study at several Northern Ireland universities.
In collaboration with Carlow College in Ireland, Carlow University offers a semester-long study abroad program in Carlow, Ireland.
Students participating in the program will stay in Sligo, Ireland, where they will be assigned to a school, hospital, or community setting which provides services to individuals with special needs.
This trip, offered in even-numbered years, affords the student the opportunity to explore the fascinating country of Ireland.
The MFA in Creative Writing is a low-residency graduate program where students meet for four intensive residencies, two in Pittsburgh, PA, in January, and two in Ireland in June.
This two-week summer intensive course is offered in Sligo, Ireland, immerses students in Irish history and culture.
