Applications are now being accepted for UPrague, a unique semester-long program for undergraduates at Charles University's School of Philosophy and Arts in Prague, Czech Republic, Jan. 30-May 22, 2010.
During their Spring semester in Prague, students may elect to earn up to 15 academic credits, accredited by the University of Miami in Coral Gables, FL. UPrague's English language courses, designed for American students, are taught by Czech faculty, while University of Miami faculty members provide online instruction and academic supervision via Blackboard. Students from the U.S. who are sufficiently fluent in a European language to study in it, may also opt to take courses through Charles University's Language dept.
Core courses (required of all students) include a Czech language "bootcamp" Feb. 8-19; "Prague and the World: Witness to History, a historical, cultural and artistic exploration of Prague’s position in the heart of Europe; and "Classroom Europe," a series of four weekend excursions from Prague to Poland, Germany, Austria and Turkey. Electives--of which students may choose up to three-- offer a wide range of options in several academic disciplines including Economics, Film, Art and Architecture, and Jewish History, each with a Czech focus within the broader European context.
Full details about courses, credits, costs, visas, accomodations at the UPrague dorm, and how to apply are now available online from the multi-media UPrague website . Interested students are encouraged to "Czech out" comments and photos by last year's UPrague participants.
The application deadline for Spring 2010, is Oct. 5, 2009. Space is limited, and interested students are encouraged to apply as soon as possible.
