Program Description:
Prague Collage

Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic, is an enchanting city, a maze of cobbled alleys lined with opulent palaces, quaint shops, churches, and cafés, all steeped in history. From the Hussite Wars of the early 15th century to the political and economic transformation of the past twenty years, Prague and its citizens have witnessed many of Europe’s most momentous changes. It is an ideal site for studying Czech culture and history as well as the transitional economics and politics of the region.

Program Information
William and Mary's summer program in Prague will include guided excursions to sites of cultural interest and natural beauty, such as the Sedlec Monastery and Ossuary, the beautiful medieval city of Český Krumlov, and the Moravian Karst or limestone caves.  In addition, other excursions may include overnight trips to Krakow, Poland, and Bratislava, Slovakia. 

Students will live in dormitories while in Prague. 

Course Information:
Students will earn 7 credits. There is a mandatory 1 credit conversational Czech language course (MDLL 360), and students may choose two courses from the following Summer 2017 course options:
