Welcome to Ireland


This fifteen-module program is an innovative, interactive program for CCC Nebraska students who would like to learn more about Ireland. This program was designed by the Institute of Study Abroad Ireland for Central Community College, and it is for students in Continuing Education programs. Assignments are assigned to each module, but are optional for CE students.

How the Virtual Ireland Program works


The Virtual Ireland program introduces you to the narratives of Ireland, past and present. These narratives are global, and part of the experience of all nations and peoples, but we invite you to see them through the lens of Irish experiences. Our Virtual Ireland course also includes an option to do short video assignments for each lecture, and we encourage you to try at least some of these optional engagements.

Learn about our shared narratives


Ireland's multifaceted history includes narratives of colonization, displacement, emigration, civil rights movements, conflict resolution, peace building and the challenge of building better in the 21st century. All of these events provide us with excellent material for comparative and critical thinking about ourselves, our community, and our past, present and future

Empathy, Cultural Competency and Knowledge


Each of the modules in this course are based on core values of empathy, cultural awareness, social justice and environmental responsibility. Students engage with each of the classes through creative assignments that will develop intercultural skills and global experiences. These are invaluable tools to take with on your future or current career path, but more importantly, make you a more informed and educated world citizen.

Global Learning - a small step to the world


You may not yet have had the opportunity to travel or study abroad, but we hope that this program will encourage you to consider it. The world is full of exciting and interesting places and people. Ireland is a tiny example of all that happens outside of your country, and it will provide you with a friendly introduction into things we have in common, and the differences in our cultures. This is the beginning of a beautiful adventure!
