CIEE Central European Studies Program in Prague, Czech Republic

If you attend the school where Einstein taught, will some of his genius rub off on you? That's just one question we answer on our Central European Studies program in Prague. If physics isn't your passion, maybe living in the same town where Mozart, Milan Kundera, and Rainer Maria Rilke plied their crafts will inspire you. CIEE places you into Prague's intellectual and performing arts communities so you get a taste of the city's fascinating past, present, and future.

In Prague you will:
