With the most courses of any of NYU’s global academic sites, NYU Prague offers students a broad curriculum in art, architecture, film, media, music, photography, politics, business, the humanities, and social science. Courses are taught by a diverse faculty, including noted writers, foreign ambassadors, and leading dissidents of the Velvet Revolution, the nonviolent political movement that ended the Communist reign in Prague in 1989. A specialized program in music and the performing arts pairs students in private lessons with the most talented musicians in the nation, while music and photography majors have access to on-site practice space and darkrooms.
Prague has emerged as a crown jewel of central Europe—a vibrant center of culture and thought that attracts students from around the world. NYU Prague students engage in this environment via co-curricular programming that includes attendance at global conferences in the city and a dynamic lecture series hosted at the NYU Prague Institute for Democracy, Economy, and Culture. Internships are widely available, and in past semesters students have written for Czech magazines and worked with the public relations and fundraising arms of the Archa and Ponec theatres and the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra.
Of course! Prague is one of the best cities from which to travel around Europe, whether by plane, train or automobile.
