Students, Community Can Travel to Ireland

WINTERVILLE—Pitt Community College students will have an opportunity to travel to Ireland and earn college credit this summer as part of a 10-day trip that is also open to members of the community.

Those taking part in the trip will visit Ireland from June 5-14, where they will study Irish culture, history, business and entrepreneurship.

Highlights of the trip include stops in Dublin City, Donegal Castle and Assaroe Abbey, traditional Irish music and poetry demonstrations, and visits to local businesses and entrepreneurs. Students will gain an understanding of the contemporary history of Northern Ireland, the peace process, and how conflict and political risk impact business.

Students may take up to six credit hours at PCC as they travel. Special sections of International Business (INT 110) and Introduction to Entrepreneurship (ETR 210) will be offered during the first 2016 Summer Semester Mini-Session.

Members of the community may also participate in “Ireland: Business, Entrepreneurship and Culture.”

For more details, trip leaders Katherine Clyde (Dean of the Business Division) and Charles Griffin (Department Chair, Entrepreneurship, Marketing, and Economics) will be hosting an information session on Oct. 20 at 2 p.m. in the Robert Lee Humber Building, Room 216.
