Students in an academic building in Prague

Featured Programs

Music in Prague

Prague is a center for symphonic and ensemble music performance, opera, theatre, jazz, composition, film scoring, music business, and music technology. Adding a global perspective to your studies is a key ingredient in your education and preparation for the professional world.

Journalism in Prague

From one of the finest Journalism Departments in the U.S. comes a chance to report from a crossroads of the New Europe. NYU Prague offers a wide range of courses for Journalism students who want international reporting experience while staying on-track toward their degree.

The NYU Prague program takes advantage of the legacy of the Czech Republic and the historic transformations of contemporary Central Europe. The curriculum includes courses on the extraordinary tradition of art and architecture in Central Europe, much of which is still preserved in Prague; on the cultural legacy of music and theatre that has distinguished Central Europe for centuries; on the economic and political transformations of post-Communist society; and on the history of Jews in Central Europe. Undergraduate courses, except language classes, are offered in English and feature art, history, business, economics, journalism, cultural studies, film, photography and music.

At NYU Prague, students are not required to enroll in a language course, but do take a one week intensive Czech course during orientation. Students have the option to take language courses in Czech, German, Polish, or Russian.

The NYU Prague curriculum offers courses in various disciplines that allow students to fulfill their major or minor requirements while studying abroad. All courses are taught in English, except for the intensive language courses, which are offered in four different languages. Day trips and guided excursions in and around the Czech Republic are included in the program. Internships feature prominently in the academic curricula of NYU Prague students.

Academic Facilities

The NYU Center is situated at Male Namesti in two 15th-century buildings only steps away from the Old Town Square and Prague's historic clock tower. One of the buildings, originally called the "White Lion," once housed one of the earliest print shops in Central Europe, where the Czech Bible was printed. The buildings have been restored to their original detail with painted wooden beams and arched entryways, an ideal place for study and reflection.

All of your courses will meet at the NYU Center on Male Namesti, which is comprised of an English-language reading room, a computer room with high-speed Internet access, a student lounge, and classrooms. The English-language reading room provides a quiet place to read and conduct research. Music practice space and photography darkrooms are also available for student use at the NYU center.
