American College Dublin

Introduction

American College Dublin, a constituent college of Irish American University, is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education and is licensed as an institution of higher education in the Republic of Ireland and the State of Delaware. Located on Merrion Square, in the heart of Ireland’s capital city, American College Dublin offers an outstanding post-secondary education at the bachelor’s and master’s levels in liberal arts, performing arts, creative writing, international business, accounting and finance, hospitality management and event management. Established as a not-for-profit educational trust in 1993 by Lynn University (located in Boca Raton, Florida), the College has grown from a study abroad campus for American students to a global institution with thirty-five nationalities among its student body. ACD has a sister campus in Lewes, Delaware, named American College Delaware, through which it offers shared programs and transfer opportunities between Ireland and the USA. American College Dublin takes the time-honored American tradition of the moderately-sized, not-for-profit liberal arts institution and places it in an international context, with campuses on both sides of the Atlantic rim. The institution seeks to offer the best characteristics of Irish and American higher education in an intimate environment underpinned by the holistic liberal arts model of learning, enabling students to realize their potential and participate successfully in the world. The College provides an education that is rigorous, stimulating and valuable, emphasizing the core values of academic excellence, innovation, ethical integrity, and multiculturalism. Class sizes are small (generally no more than twenty students to a class) and the teacher engages the student in an educational experience that is active, participative and challenging. Many of the programmes of study have an internship component, which allows students to apply their classroom learning in relevant industry environments and provides them with practical experience related to their field of study. A high proportion of the College’s students progress to further studies at the postgraduate level. Above all, American College Dublin strives to instill a passion for education that advances the development of the individual’s talents and a process of lifelong learning. Vision American College Dublin will provide a high-quality undergraduate and postgraduate education: one that is rigorous, stimulating and valuable.
