Academics

 

Academics

At the CIEE Prague Academic Center, students attend classes which are taught mainly by the faculty of Charles University. Coursework is offered in a variety of disciplines and taught in English. Additional aspects of the program are organized by CIEE using the resources of the University. The program includes cultural activities such as concerts and opera, local excursions to Prague Castle, Old Town Square, 3 one-day excursions, and field trips to Bohemia and Moravia.

The Czech educational system requires a high degree of self-motivation, self-discipline, and a proactive approach to study. Independent learning and active participation in class are necessary to achieve satisfactory academic performance. Students are encouraged to use public libraries and take advantage of Charles University resources.

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

Housing

 

Housing

Students may choose from the following program-providing housing options:
 
  • Homestay: This option provides an excellent opportunity for immersion into the local culture and is strongly recommended for students who wish to take full advantage of their Czech experience.
  • CIEE-Administered Apartments: Students share the apartment with a flat buddy who is a local Charles University student. The flat buddy is responsible for apartment maintenance and also helps with Czech immersion while organizing activities for students.
  • CIEE-Administered Residence: The residence consists of apartments where only CIEE students and Resident Assistants (RA) live. The RAs are Charles University students and live in separate apartments in the building. RAs help during the orientation, organize activities for students, and help them with daily issues.
