Program Description:

This program provides students with an 11-week (400 hour) guaranteed internship and housing in Dublin, Ireland. The Study Abroad Center partners with EUSA to find individualized placements for students in their chosen professional area. EUSA also secures housing for students and is available for on-call support for each student for the duration of the program.
If you are interested in the 8-week program, you can find that here.

The 11-week program allows students to fulfill the requirement for JL MC 499A, PR 499A, ADVRT 499A, AEHSM 470 (for Event and Hospitality majors).

Every area within journalism is available including photojournalism, broadcast, copywriting, digital design and graphics. There are plenty of opportunities within public relations and advertising as well. Some examples of previous internship placements for Iowa State students include:
103.2 Dublin City FM (A radio station with a blend of talk and music based programming) 
Metro Eireann (Ireland's first and only weekly multicultural newspaper)
The Irish Catholic (A weekly publication that is Ireland's biggest and best-selling religious newspaper)
Pundit Arena (A sports media platform)
Dublin Inquirer (An independent weekly online newspaper)

evolve Design (A firm specializing in Brand Design, Web Development, and Digital Marketing) 
The Irish Academy of Public Relations

These are just some of the options available. There are plenty of other opportunities as well! 

The EUSA team will handle all aspects of your placement in Dublin. The first step is a meeting with a EUSA team member in person at Iowa State in early March. This will be focused on your previous work experience, preferences, and desired goals for the internship placement. EUSA will then reach out to their network of contacts in Dublin within your chosen area(s) to find an individualized placement well-suited to your past experience, knowledge, and career goals.

Dublin is the capital of the Republic of Ireland and is known for its Irish charm, rich history, and friendly pubs. Dublin's population has boomed in the last few decades with many global organizations opening offices in the city. There are many sights to check out within Dublin and the rest of Ireland on the weekends including the Cliffs of Moher, the Blarney Castle, Killarney, the Guinness Storehouse, Jameson Distillery, Trinity College, Limerick, Galway, and Belfast.  

Your housing accommodation will be in a student suite-style residence with individual bedrooms, bathrooms shared with one other student, access to a full kitchen and living room. EUSA will likely place students in housing on the University College Dublin campus. Although you are going for a career experience, you won't miss out on the student experience and community that goes with living on a university campus. You’ll have a network of Iowa State students living near you as well as EUSA’s expertise and support. Dublin has an extensive public transportation system of buses, trams, and trains. 

Students can use this program to fulfill the required internship [ADVRT/JL MC/ P R 499A] for the Greenlee School of Journalism. These majors must coordinate with Juli Probasco-Sowers, in order to receive approval. To earn credit for 499A, students must have fulfilled the following requirements:
  • Classified as a junior or senior
  • Passed JL MC 110 and successfully completed JL MC 201 with a C+ or better
