Study the Performing Arts and Politics at NYU Prague


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 pairs students in private lessons with the most talented musicians in the nation.

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 by attending 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 students write for Czech magazines, do research for online news agencies, and work for theatres and orchestras. NYU Prague staff organizes dozens of trips around the country every semester, taking students to little known corners of the bucolic Czech countryside.  NYU Prague is the only study abroad site to have a student webzine - The Prague Wanderer, aimed at readers around the world.  Students write about social issues, current events, politics and experience what it's like to be a real journalist.
