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 noted writers, foreign ambassadors, and dissidents who led the Velvet Revolution that ended the Communist regime in 1989. A specialized music program pairs students with the most talented musicians in the nation.
Prague is a vibrant center of culture that attracts students from around the world. NYU Prague students engage in this environment by attending global conferences hosted by NYU Prague. Internships are available with Czech magazines, online news agencies, NGOs and consulting firms. Students discover little-known corners of the bucolic Czech countryside on NYU Prague trips.
NYU Prague is the only study abroad site to have a student webzine - The Prague Wandering, aimed at readers around the world. We have also just introduced the PragueCast, our own audio blog, entirely produced by students under the leadership of Prague's BBC correspondent. Come to Prague and discover the world!
Of course! Prague is one of the best cities from which to travel around Europe, whether by plane, train or automobile.
