This 15 day program takes students to nine towns and cities in the Czech Republic. Students will be participating in an extensive, multi-disciplinary program focusing on culture, education, and history.

There will be four visits to local schools and universities in multiple cities, where students can sit in on classes and lectures, shadow educators, and learn more about the education system in the Czech Republic.

Students will have many chances to immerse themselves in the unique Czech culture, experiencing the cities as the locals do, by visiting markets, authentic restaurants, attending a sporting event, and more. We will also hold cultural and historical walking tours that give students a structured chance to explore each unique destination.

The Czech Republic is rich in culture and history, and students will be able to visit key destinations, venues, and neighborhoods that were key to shaping the country’s vibrant past and culture. During these visits and tours, students will learn about the Czech Republic’s storied past and major cultural movements.
