City as a Classroom
Prague is a vibrant center of culture. At NYU Prague classes are small, and professors take full advantage of the city with field trips, guest speakers and academic excursions outside of Prague.
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 program study at the prestigious FAMU Film Academy and enjoy NYU housing and extracurriculars.
Prague is a center for classical music, jazz, and music technology. As part of their course curriculum, music students go to concerts, symphony rehearsals, and spend a weekend exploring music in Vienna. Add a global perspective to your studies and make contacts around Europe!
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.
Beyond the Classroom
You can explore the Czech Republic and Central Europe with faculty and staff on our many trips around the Czech Republic. We also offer both academic and non-credit internships where you can get work experience abroad.
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.

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.
