Since 1992 FIU’s Czech Republic Study Abroad Program has given students the opportunity to visit and take part in interdisciplinary study of the Czech Republic. It is one of the longest-running university programs to this part of the world; the program is academically-accredited and students can receive upper-division credits.
From June 21st – July 23rd, students will study a wide range of subjects with professors from Charles University, one of the oldest universities in Europe (1348), including: literature, history, film studies, linguistics, politics, Jewish studies, art history, architecture, and women’s studies. Experiential learning is the driving philosophy of the program, thus, field trips, walking tours, and trips to various regions of the country are an integral feature.
As a group, students explore Prague and Slovakia and experience history in the making as these two countries emerge from over 40 years of totalitarian rule. A few of the many stops include: the National Marionette Theatre, the Loket Castle, Barrandov Studios, and the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival. This unique, four week program provides students with the opportunity to grow academically, socially, and culturally.
