The Program

Charles University was established in 1348, a time when Prague was the capital of Europe. The University has over 100 buildings dispersed through out the city, with over a millennium's worth of history to explore and experience.

The Prague program is ideal for students interested in studying and living in an extraordinary medieval city. Prague is an open textbook of modern and traditional literature, art, architecture, and culture enclosed in the beautiful scenery of the city, including its walls, castles, and frescoes.

Prague

Prague, rich in history, has existed for more than a millennium. Old and new features of the city form a unity of styles not seen anywhere else. You may see its beauty from the hills around the city, from old bridges and steamer ships on the Vltava River, and even from rowboats. With its narrow curved streets, marvelous courtyards and green parks that make up 30% of downtown, Prague is a city for those who love to walk or ride a bike.

Academics

You choose from a wide range of courses with a focus on Central Europe and the Czech Republic and may take courses in politics, literature, history, business, psychology, sociology, and the arts.  Semester or yearlong students will also learn the basics of the Czech language in a two-week Czech intensive course offered at the beginning of each semester. You can find more information on the courses offered here.
