In addition to a required Czech language course, take a wide range of courses in the humanities and social sciences taught in English, with specialization in economics and central European studies. Each semester includes a 3-night trip to Krakow, Poland, and an excursion to the picturesque castle town of Český Krumlov, known for its beautiful Baroque castle and well-preserved historic center. Students take day trips to Dresden, Kutná Hora, or Litoměřice, with plenty of time left over to explore Prague itself—a city like an outdoor museum filled with rich art, architecture, music, and history.
