- Program Description:
- After the fall of communism in 1989, the borders to the Czech Republic were reopened and Prague, the capital city, quickly surfaced as an internationally recognized center of culture. Located in the heart of Europe, Prague provides a fascinating vantage point from which to study emerging European nations and issues of democratization. The program offers students an absorbing international and intercultural perspective on a wide array of aesthetic, historical, political, and social issues.
Students in International Affairs and Political Science courses will visit sites that memorialize the Holocaust and other World War II atrocities and organizations that have worked to expose crimes committed under Communism. Social Work students will engage staff in settings such as drug treatment clinics, domestic violence centers, HIV/AIDS prevention and care sites, human rights organizations, courts, and prisons, allowing them to learn how these services are provided in a Central European context. U.S. Social Work students also may be joined in classes by students and faculty members of Prague’s Charles University as well as local guest lecturers.
- Setting Description:
- Program participants will be housed in comfortable apartments in the metropolitan Prague area.
