Offered through CIEE, the Central European Studies in Prague program is an approved UW affiliate program. On this program, you will take a series of specifically-designed courses focusing on the Czech Republic and Central Europe, in such fields as history, political science, literature, sociology, art history, and communication arts. Students are also required to take a course in Czech language.   You can also choose to participate on the January Communications, New Media, and Journalism program. Students will take one course during this January program. You’ll visit media companies and radio stations, and go on an overnight trip with a specific focus on communications and the Czech film industry.

You will be working closely with both IAP and CIEE on this program.
