Students in an academic building in Prague

Learning outside the classroom

City as a Classroom

Prague is a vibrant center of culture, and NYU Prague professors take full advantage of the city with field trips, guest speakers and academic excursions outside of Prague.

Featured Programs

Prague is a site with "sub-programs"- clusters of courses with their own identity.  Our well-established music and journalism programs offer hands-on experiences, and students in the Tisch film program study at the prestigious FAMU Academy and enjoy NYU housing and extracurriculars.  Tisch is currently exploring developing new scene design and dance programs in Prague.

Music in Prague

Prague is a center for classical music, jazz, and music technology.  Add a global perspective to your studies and make contacts around Europe!

Journalism in Prague

From one of the finest Journalism Departments in the U.S. comes a chance to report from the crossroads of Europe.  Get international reporting experience while staying on-track toward your degree.

Foreign Languages

Students are not required to enroll in a language course, but all take an intensive Czech course during orientation. We offer language courses in Czech, German, Polish, and Russian.

Beyond the Classroom

Our student life office organizes trips around the Czech Republic. Both academic and non-credit internships feature prominently in the experience of NYU Prague students.

Academic Facilities

NYU Prague is housed in two 15th-century buildings only steps away from the historic Old Town Square.  One of our buildings was once 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.
