Program Description:

Program Overview CIEE_Prague3

Get a grip on the rapidly-changing media landscape in enchanting Prague. As a city that’s seen remarkable transformation since the end of the Cold War and its independence in 1993, it’s an especially intriguing place to explore how media influences public opinion. In the heart of Europe - try your hand as a foreign news correspondent and even learn to speak Czech! Courses are taught in English at CIEE Prague and complemented with co-curricular activities designed to increase intercultural understanding.

  • Explore more of the region with two excursions, destinations change annually, and have included:
    • Terezín, the former Jewish ghetto, and Nazi labor camp
    • Sychrov, home of a beautiful neo-Gothic castle and famous gothic fortress built in Roman times
    • Litoměřice, where the Ploskovice castle and historical structures date back to the 13th century
    • Karlovy Vary, a noted spa town
    • Mikulov, South Moravian wine destination
    • Plzeň, home of Europe’s second-largest synagogue, the Victims of Evil monument, and the George Patton Museum
  • Get an insider’s view of Prague with the help of your Flat Buddy, a Charles University student who will teach you cultural norms and introduce you to Czech culture.
  • Make your visit official by traversing the Charles Bridge, constructed to cross the Vltava River in 1357.

Program Focus

Students choose one or two 4-week sessions to study media, journalism, and communication within the Czech Republic.

Courses are taught by specialists in their respective fields from Charles University and other reputable universities. In-class work is augmented with co-curricular visits to the city’s rich variety of cultural institutions and organizations relevant to the course offerings.
