CIEE: Summer Central European Studies in Prague

Program Overview

Staggering architecture, rich cultural history, a turbulent past and exciting future – Prague is as fascinating a city as it is beautiful. Spend your summer exploring the rich cultural and social heritage of Prague, the Czech Republic, and Central Europe through the exploration of its art and architectural roots, local societies, and dynamic history.

In this program you will have access to coursework, cultural excursions, activities, and roommates that will give you the opportunity to make the city your own. You will spend your summer in one of Europe’s most exciting cities, and learn about a variety of Central European issues and Czech perspectives, participate in experiential activities linked with coursework, and explore the city.

You will have the opportunity to live with local students in an apartment in one of Prague’s authentic neighborhoods, get help acclimating to the city through CIEE Flat Buddies—local Charles University or FAMU students, and partake in cultural activities and day/weekend excursions that augment class material.
