About The Program
Explore the dynamics of the Czech Republic, its culture and its place in the region. Field trips, cultural activities and guest lectures from local leaders in politics, business and religion complement coursework. Prague is the historical capital of Bohemia and one of the best preserved cities of Europe, with most of its cultural sites intact.
Where you'll study
You’ll take classes along with students from across the United States at the CIEE study center at Vysehrad, a site as old as myths and legends. Referred to as Prague’s second castle, the 10th-century fort is on a hilltop above the Vltava river—about 15 minutes from the Old Town area. Thick medieval walls surround the extensive complex and hush the modern sounds of nearby traffic. In addition to taking courses at the CIEE center, you can enroll in courses at Charles University through the Central and European Studies department. You may also access performing arts and film courses at the Prague Film and TV School (FAMU), central Europe’s preeminent film academy.
