    Public Speaking
    Algebra
    Western Civ
    World Lit

    World Lit and Western Civ are both fully online courses. Public Speaking and Algebra are both Mon/Wed classes, so I'll only be on campus twice weekly. I'm a commuter student who also works full-time right now. I think this is the last semester that I'll be able to swing that, though.

    Cinema History II
    Film Theory II
    Shakespeare
    Brief History of Literary
    Race & Ethnicity in Film
    Narrative Theory II

    Film Theory is great, and in Cinema History we're starting to hit some really good stuff. Shakespeare is far from my cup of tea (as is most of the incredibly over-pretentious gack written in that era). Brief History of Literary sounds like it could be interesting, but also seems somewhat of a course-filler, which I can't say I am over the moon about, but Race & Ethnicity in Film should be very interesting. Narrative Theory II is the class I am most looking forward too though, since we're covering screenwriing and script development this semester, especially as that is kind of what I'm trying to get into after college.

    My whole three year course is here, for anybody interested.

    So in this school, you're only focusing on film classes? you're not required to take any liberal arts classes or any requirements like science, math, diversity studies, etc?
    And how difficult was it getting into this school and how much is it?

    In the UK and Ireland degrees tend to focus only on subjects relating to the degree you are doing.

    It's under the title of 'Film, Literature & Drama' and funny enough, it was incredibly easy to get into and costs far less than American colleges tend to (€4,500 a year, over 3 years - €13,500 total). The thing is, in Ireland colleges tend to be free to go to (the more presitigous ones, anyway) due to gov't funding brought in when basically nobody went to college here. The only problem there is, apart from my college only Trinity (where Joyce and iirc, Yeats went) - and to go there for Film Studies, you need to get 540 of a potential 600 points in the Leaving Cert (a state exam of 6 subjects that determines what colleges you can go to; basically, if you fail every exam of your life and cheat in that to get straight A's, you can go to whatever college you want... so if you don't do well in exams like me [dyspraxia], you're screwed). There is one out in Ballyfermot, but it is very hard to get to and a pretty useless course (as I've heard off some of my lecturers, as well as a neighbour who graduated from there last year).

    DBS, where I go, was only about 230 points, so it took a fair bit of stress off knowing I didn't have to kill myself trying to get something that was basically unatainable, and DBS only updated their equipment this year, so the resources there are unbelievable actually, far better than Trinity, barring their library).

    A lot of Americans go to Trinity though - a lot. Not that I'm calling you an American or anything :D but if you're interested it's well worth a look (especially as Trinity - as well as DBS and several other colleges - are located right in the middle of Dublin City Centre).

    The Central Applications Office website is a good place to get further information.

    I'm not fully back yet, the PowerBook isn't due to be fixed until Tuesday/Wednesday. I'm still €200 short of what I need to pay for it (new screens on laptops cost a Quinton goddamn Fortune), and would have won €1,500 had Torquay not equalised with Grimsby in the 89th minute. By next weekend though, I should be back in the big swinging coc... nevermind; I should be around more often again.

    I've actually been considering applying to their one year creative writing Masters program. I'm torn between loving how the program is set up, and the fact that I don't know if I'd be able to get a sabbatical at work yet (and poverty).

    I would recommend it, Trinity's literary courses have an extremely high reputation from what I know and the fact that it wouldn't cost you a penny to go there (unless that is only applicable to Irish citizens, a point I am unsure of) would help the financial strains. Also, although it is literally a 2-3 minute walk away from the Liffey Bridge (which seperates north & south Dublin and is basically seen as the absolute heart and hub of the city) it is a campus college I believe, meaning accomodation and travelling expenses would be cut considerably... just make sure you find some cost-efficient but nice places to eat/drink when going out, because doing otherwise can be rather costly. ;)

    I'm not sure about the tuition thing either, but I was under the impression that the whole "free" thing was only for the Irish (and though my real name does have an apostrophe, I'm New York born and bred). After many years on my own and this year on a teacher's salary, I am well used to living a frugal life. One of my other concerns though is that I have a dog. Anyone know the laws/rules pertaining to bringing a dog with you overseas for an extended trip?

    Animals are subject to immigration and quarantine laws at various times and places. My brother-in-law opted to leave his dog home from a six month assignment overseas because of a ninety day quarantine law where he was headed (not Europe, though). Don't leave figuring this one out for the last minute!

    wow, given what you and Toon2 just said, I'm pained to say I feel like sh!T here in America, I've constantly been screwed out of a good education, I've gone through two colleges in three years already and I can't seem to fit in anywhere. I can't even begin my film studies because stupi requirements are taking up too much of my time and stressing me out ontop of it.
    There are specialized schools but they are too expensive and I won't be able to afford them in the long run.
    The American school system is downright laughable in this regard..
    :( :mad:

    You're right about the fees - the government only pays for Irish citizens to attend college. There are different fees for E.U. and non-E.U. students as well as far as I know, although given that I'm in the U.K. system I'm not too sure what the differences are. I don't have a clue about the dog situation, tbh.
