Walk to class past UNESCO World Heritage sites. Attend class in a 17th century palace. Immerse into student life in one of central Europe’s most beautiful cities. Prague’s hidden courtyards, winding streets, traditional pubs, and eye-catching architecture are uniquely juxtaposed with the city’s very modern business and academic opportunities. With a growing economy, vibrant arts and music scenes, an influential intellectual community, and architectural styles ranging from Gothic to Baroque to Art Nouveau, Prague is an ideal setting in which to explore Czech culture. Study abroad in the city that greats like Mozart, Kundera, Rilke, and Einstein called home… and discover the magic of Prague for yourself.
November 17, 1989. Czechoslovakia had been under communist rule for more than 40 years—and students had had enough. Thanks in large part to peaceful student demonstrations, communist leadership resigned by the end of the year, paving the way for democratic elections and the formation of the Czech Republic. The so-called Velvet Revolution of 1989 sparked unprecedented growth, and today's Czech Republic stands as one of the region’s economic, political, and cultural centers. It’s easy to see why the Czech Republic is such a popular destination; vibrant urban centers, traditional villages, and stunning natural beauty combine to make this central European nation an ideal setting for students who wish to live amidst the juxtaposition of old and new, traditional and modern.
