NYU Prague


NYU Prague offers students a broad curriculum in art, architecture, film, media, music, photography, politics, business, the humanities, and social sciences in one of the world's most beautiful cities.  Our faculty includes writers, ambassadors, and dissidents who helped topple the Communist regime.  NYU Prague's successful music program pairs students with leading European musicians.  Film students work with Czech production crews from FAMU, one of Europe‚Äôs oldest and most prestigious film schools. 

Outside of the classroom opportunities abound in this vibrant city of culture via internships, international conferences, excursions,  and cultural programs organized by NYU Prague.  Media students can work on PragueCast, produced by students under the guidance of the BBC Prague correspondent, contribute our student Webzine, or be part of the team that runs the NYU Prague Now! student blog.
