Academics

 

Academics

Coursework is focused on Jewish Studies, in the context of East Central European history and culture and are taught in English, some specifically for CET students, some taken at Charles University. Scheduled travel takes students to Poland, Budapest, Terezin (Theresienstadt) and Cesky Krumlov, a beautiful medieval castle. At least one excursion, lecture, museum visit or film screening is organized every week. CET takes students beyond classroom learning to immerse them in Czech and Czech Jewish culture. They will meet privately with the leaders of today's reemerging Jewish community, participate in activities with Czech and Polish students, visit the oldest synagogue in Europe, and get to know today's Czech Jews through community service projects. They see a side of Prague that most Americans never see.
 
The CET program provides Jewish and non-Jewish students the experience of living in a place with rich Jewish history and culture, and a vibrant growing current Jewish community. It offers the unique combination of experiencing Prague as an example of a modern Eastern European city with deep encounters with the Jewish history, the Holocaust and its survivors.

All students are required to take the mandatory Czech Language Course.

Students interested in taking an internship course must request an Emory equivalent through the Course Approval Form.
