CET Prague

What is the Traveling Seminar?

The Traveling Seminar is a two-part trip—a week in Poland, Vienna, and the Czech Republic (outside of Prague), plus four days Budapest later in the semester.

Students in all three concentrations—Business & Economics, Central European Studies, and Jewish Studies—participate in the Traveling Seminar. While the group travels together for many parts of the journey, some segments are split between the concentrations—Jewish Studies students might head to Warsaw, while Central European Studies students visit Austria, and Business & Economics students head to Berlin.

You’ll have readings and discussions that prepare you for the Traveling Seminar, but much of the learning comes from the seeing and the doing. You’ll meet with leaders, visit museums, tour cities, see film screenings, explore sites. This is learning at its best. And it is an experience that you will remember for the rest of your life.
