Program Overview

Home to a rapidly evolving media landscape, Prague is the perfect city to examine the changing nature of contemporary media culture.

Enroll in courses with other CIEE students in Prague to develop a deeper literacy about global communication trends, while exploring contemporary life in the Czech Republic. In addition to instruction, students can benefit from field trips, guest lectures, and other events designed to supplement the academic content of the courses.

You will enjoy course excursions to local media outlets, such as Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty and deepen your understanding of the Czech Republic with various historic and cultural excursions around Prague and the surrounding area

Application process

CIEE offers three different summer sessions. UO students can choose from either Summer Session II, Summer Session III, or both Summer Sessions II and III. Summer Session I is not open to UO students, as it overlaps with the end of spring term. UO students looking for a longer summer study abroad program are able to combine the last two sessions offered by CIEE. Consult with your GEO Study Abroad Advisor before starting an application.

If you are interested in applying to a CIEE program, we strongly advise you to meet with an advisor prior to applying.

Selection for the program is based on a review of your written application, recommendation, transcript(s), and completion of the interview process. Qualified applicants are recommended by a GEO Study Abroad Program Advisor. The final selection of participants is made by CIEE.

IMPORTANT: Application for a CIEE program involves two parts:

  • Completion of the GEO application process.
  • Completion of the CIEE application process.

Please note that the GEO deadline supersedes the CIEE deadline. An application fee is due at the time of application and is non-refundable under any circumstances.
