Program OverviewUSAC_Prague

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. This program includes at least two one-day field trips and an optional 1-credit Vienna and Budapest Field Study course that represent exceptional opportunities to discover the cultural and historical richness of Prague and Central Europe. Prague experiences all four seasons that are typical for Central Europe—colorful falls with harvest festivals, quiet winters with traditional customs and winter sports, fresh springs with blossoming flowers filling Prague’s parks, and warm summers with outdoor festivals.

Program Focus

Students can study for one semester, a full year, or during the summer which consists of two 4-week sessions, which can be combined for an 8-week session. 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. Additionally, semester students may also choose to complete an internship, which provides an unmatched opportunity to practice your language skills and gain international professional experience.

This program has an excellent internship option, placements are English-speaking and are for-credit!
