Central European Studies in Prague, Czech Republic
Staggering architecture, rich cultural history, and an exciting future – Prague is as fascinating a city as it is beautiful. Spend your summer exploring the rich cultural and social heritage of Prague, the Czech Republic, and Central Europe through the exploration of its art and architectural roots, local societies, and dynamic history. Study abroad in Prague and you'll have access to coursework, cultural excursions, activities, and flat buddies that give you the opportunity to make the city your own.
Academics & Curriculum
The study abroad program is offered in three, four-week sessions; students may participate in one, two, or three. Students choose one of the English-taught courses offered in each session. A minimum number of students is required in order to offer a course, and therefore students are advised to seek pre-approval for more than one course option from their home school advisor prior to the start of the program. Cultural activities, weekend excursions, and experiential learning activities are linked with coursework to augment class material.
Accommodations & Meals
While in Prague, students reside in apartments in popular neighborhoods with fellow CIEE participants and a CIEE Flat Buddy—a Charles University student who helps CIEE students adjust to student life in Prague. Students share double rooms and kitchen and bathroom facilities. Meals and internet service are not included and are the responsibility of the student. Students can purchase food supplies and prepare meals in the apartment kitchens. They may also be able to arrange internet service for an additional fee in cooperation with their Flat Buddy.
Apartments are located throughout Prague, with commuting times and distances varying. It’s important for students to be aware that commuting is part of daily life in Prague, and the location of most apartments requires daily use of public transportation. It is common for the student commute, including public transportation and walking, to take up to 35 minutes one way. A transportation pass is included in the program fee.
