NYU Prague

Prague students

NYU Prague offers students a broad curriculum in art, architecture, film, media, music, photography, politics, business, the humanities, and social science. Our faculty includes writers, ambassadors, and dissidents who helped topple the Communist regime. NYU Prague's successful music program pairs students with the most talented musicians in the nation. Film students have the opportunity to branch out and study filmmaking from an entirely different tradition and culture at the Film and Television School of the Academy of Performing Arts (FAMU), one of Europe‚Äôs oldest and most prestigious film schools. 

Prague is a vibrant center of culture. NYU Prague students attend global conferences hosted by NYU Prague. Internships are available with international magazines, online news agencies, NGOs and consulting firms. Students explore the bucolic Czech countryside on the many NYU Prague overnight and day trips.   Our Kulturama program immerses students in Prague's rich culture - opera, film, theatre, music, Czech cuisine, politics, ice hockey, and much more.  

NYU Prague is the only study abroad site to have a student webzine - The Prague Wandering, aimed at readers around the world. Budding media stars can also work on the PragueCast, our own podcast, entirely produced by students under the leadership of Prague's BBC correspondent.
