Academic Choices

Study Business & Economics and learn why companies are investing in Prague. Select Central European Studies and learn about Prague’s history as a hotbed of resistance and artistic experimentation. Or choose Jewish Studies—learn from a growing Jewish community, conduct service work, visit the Malach Visual History Centre. Regardless of what you choose, you’ll be able to try out distinctly Czech electives, or take a requirement for your major back home. The choice is yours.

Through internships and the Traveling Seminar, this program will change your worldview…and your life.
