Program Description
The KIIS summer program in Prague, Czech Republic lasts five weeks and is located in one of the most popular spots of Europe. A picturesque capital city located on the banks of the Vltava River, Prague is widely known for its arts and stunning architecture that fluidly incorporates styles from the Romanesque period to the present. Then as now, Prague also remains an important center of music, literature, and theater— indeed, Mozart and Kafka fell under the creative spell of Golden Prague.

Colloquially called the “heart of Europe,” Prague is an ideal location to study European political history, including the events of the Holy Roman Empire, the Protestant Reformation (under Jan Hus), and Catholic Counter-Reformation. Prague is also perfectly-situated to explore cross-cultural exchange in Europe: since Charlemagne, it represents the westernmost reach of the Slavs and the easternmost reach of Western influence. More recently, Prague has been at the center of tumultuous global developments, notably World War I, World War II, the Cold War, the collapse of the Soviet empire, the economic transition from socialism to capitalism, and the eastward expansion of NATO and the European Union.

The Prague program neatly combines classroom learning with regular outings and excursions. All instruction is in English. Excursions include a four-day bus trip to southern Bohemia and a visit to the Nazi concentration camp at Terezin.  In Prague, students visit such landmarks as the Old Town Square (Staromestske Namesti), the Charles Bridge, and the Jewish Quarter; equally important, they have the time to savor hidden elements of Prague that tourists invariably overlook. On select weekends, students may also travel independently in the Czech Republic and beyond.
In Prague, American expats publish a number of English-language newspapers that provide students with a wealth of political, economic, and cultural information about the city and region. For instance, check out The Prague Post and the Prague Daily Monitor.
