Overview
CIEE-Prague: Central European Studies

Because of its many steeples, Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic, is called the hundred-towered city. The city was not severely damaged during World War II and contains large numbers of buildings of Romanesque, Renaissance, Baroque, Art Nouveau and Cubist architecture. Prague has a rich cultural life with a large variety of art exhibits and galleries, concerts, operas and theatre productions.

Charles University is the premier institution of higher education in the Czech Republic. The university has no central campus but is located in more than a dozen facilities throughout the city. There are approximately 30,000 students enrolled in sixteen academic departments.

CIEE Prague is designed for students interested in the politics, social structures and economies of Central European states, especially their transformations from state-controlled to market-based systems. Participants can choose from a broad range of courses, participate in several excursions throughout the region and volunteer as ESL instructors.
