CIEE Prague: Central European Studies

Prague, Czech Republic

Students have the opportunity to take courses taught at or in affiliation with Charles University and FAMU (Film and Television School of the Academy of the Performing Arts).  Only the Central European Studies program is approved for Amherst College credit; the Film Studies track is not approved because the two required core courses do not fall within the liberal arts.

Students must receive credit from Spelman College, the school of record for CIEE.  Students are strongly encouraged to live in the dorms with local students or with a host family.

We expect all students will take a Czech language as one of their courses.
