Each year, the Department welcomes a growing number of full-time international and exchange students from around the world who enrich our shared multicultural learning environment. We also encourage our own students to study abroad, as part of the Erasmus or Non-EU Exchange programmes during their degree.

Trinity College Dublin, founded in 1592, is recognised internationally as Ireland's premier university, consistently in the top 100 of the QS World University Rankings. It is a cosmopolitan and exciting place to study and meet new friends, including approximately 10% international students from over 90 different countries. The campus is located in the heart of Dublin, a vibrant city which was recently ranked in the top ten student cities globally.


The new Dual BA Programme is unique in that students will graduate from the two leading universities with two degrees over the course of four years. The inaugural cohort will pursue a rigorous undergraduate education in the areas of the arts and humanities, spanning the two continents.

They will spend their first two years at Trinity, studying one of four areas—English Studies, European Studies, History, or Middle Eastern and European Languages and Cultures. They will then go on to study at Columbia for their final two years, completing a core curriculum and several majors.

During their time in the programme, Dual BA students will be part of two vibrant academic communities with access to abundant extracurricular options on campus and beyond, as well as internship and entrepreneurial opportunities in both Dublin and New York City. In year four, the research project, co-supervised by academics in Trinity and Columbia University, will give students the opportunity to develop their interests.
