This is a short-term (3 weeks) study-abroad program for students interested in the psychological and sociological causes, characteristics, and consequences of the sectarian conflict ("the Troubles") in Northern Ireland. This year there will be a special emphasis on intergration versus segregation in education.

This program is part of an ongoing, collaborative relationship between Bucknell and the University of Ulster, involving both educational opportunities through Magee College and research through the Center for Voluntary Action Studies. We also are part of a consortium for study in Northern Ireland that includes Swarthmore Rutgers and the West Virginia University School of Social Work.

The program has been designed to give students first-hand experience with the people of Northern Ireland, with community-based efforts at resolving the conflict on a local level, and with the culture, history, geography, and politics of the country.
