Known as a centerpiece of European history and culture, Prague is a must-see for any globe-trotter and an incredible introduction for first time travelers. Throughout the Czech Republic’s history, Prague has been at the intersection of ideas, art, and world politics. The result is a city that satisfies even the most acute wanderlust.
During this two-week Global Prep program, topics that you’ve only read about will transform into textures, tastes, and first-hand stories. Want to learn about World War II or the Cold War? You’ll travel to Berlin to see the remnants of these world-changing events. Interested in learning about the artistic movements of Europe and the architecture built out of them? Come with us, and see it yourself.
When you’re not using Prague as your classroom, you’ll venture to Bohemia – the Czech Republic’s countryside. There, you’ll visit quintessential European towns overflowing with charms, castles, and stories. Throughout your journey, you’ll see how history has left its fingerprints on modern day Czech culture. You’ll have opportunities to experience the Czech Republic by joining Czech families and peers for some dinners during your course. After two-weeks, you’ll walk away with an educated and authentic understanding of a breathtaking country and culture.
“I would say that this experience was life changing. I’ve heard of so many people saying it would be and they weren’t wrong. I felt like I learned so much about myself and about a whole new culture.”
