The Freshman Dublin Experience

In light of the novel coronavirus escalation in Europe, Marist’s senior leadership has required all students to return home to continue their studies virtually. All students will be able to complete their spring semester credits and stay on track for their planned graduation dates. Student’s health and safety are at the forefront of the decision-making process.

We are optimistic that our unique programs will resume this fall and plan to welcome our new students into this transformative educational experience.


The Freshman Dublin Experience (FDE) is a program designed for highly motivated freshmen who wish to pursue foundation course work in a study abroad environment while also allowing for a cultural exploration of Ireland. This program offers students international experience in one of the most beautiful and charismatic cities in Europe. A student interested in the FDE is one that wants to challenge the typical college experience and distinguish themselves from the others. The Dublin program will allow students to explore major, minor, and core courses, while maintaining their traditional Marist academic track.
