Staff Report From Tifton CEO

Tuesday, February 13th, 2018

Students at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College and the University System of Georgia can take advantage of a fabulous study abroad opportunity in Ireland this summer, and a familiar face will be there to guide their instruction.

Dr. Jeff Newberry, professor of English and Communication at ABAC, will teach two of the classes in the study abroad program in Waterford, Ireland being offered by the USG through the European Council from June 14–July 19.  Students can earn from three to six academic credits.

A variety of classes will be offered for academic credit, including Journalism, Art, Literature, History, and Sociology.  The program is based at the Waterford Institute of Technology.  Classes will meet twice a week in the classroom, and students will take multiple excursions around Ireland while earning credits.  Students will have three-day weekends to travel across Ireland and other European countries.

The cost of this program is $5,200 and includes room and board, airfare, 35 meals, and mandatory trips.  Tuition and weekend travel expenses are extra.  A more comprehensive list of expenses is available on the European Council Study Abroad website.  Baldwin Library at ABAC will host an upcoming Ireland Night for interested students.

“This will be a wonderful experience for students,” Newberry said.  “It will be many of the participating students first time outside of U.S. borders.  It is a bargain and a big opportunity for students.”
