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. Our faculty includes noted writers, foreign ambassadors, and dissidents who led the Velvet Revolution that ended the Communist regime in 1989. NYU Prague's successful 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 attend 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 the many NYU Prague overnight and day trips. Our Kulturama program immerses students in Prague's rich culture - opera, hockey, Czech cuisine, puppets, politics, theatre, film 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. We have also just introduced the PragueCast, our own podcast, entirely produced by students under the leadership of Prague's BBC correspondent.
Of course! Prague is one of the best cities from which to travel around Europe, whether by plane, train or automobile.
