Study in Prague This Summer — Info Session Feb. 20

Earn six UHart credits by studying abroad in Prague this summer!

You can find out more at an information session on Thursday, Feb. 20, from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. inGSU 218.
Spend 18 days studying “Power, Culture and Human Rights in Central Europe” in the vibrant cities of Prague and Krakow. Explore the evolution of human rights with an emphasis on developments in Central Europe since 1945. Examine the human rights violations of both Nazism and Communism and see how these two cities emerged to form democratic societies.

Visit Prague’s Jewish Cemetery and the Castle, the Krakow Ghetto and Auschwitz. Attend cultural events, visit museums and historical sites, and meet civic activists who shaped the constitutions of the emerging democracies. Learn how political attempts to put the concept of human rights into practice through institutions embodying them have, in turn, led to an evolution in our understanding of the human rights concept itself.
Shape your own course of study by selecting two courses from a menu of six (AUCW 110, AUCS 180, POL 383, 483, PHI 470, 471). If you choose to do independent research, let our Czech coordinators from the Dartmore Institute arrange for you to talk with Czech or Polish thinkers in the relevant fields.

Program cost: $4,900 includes six UHart credits, group meals and housing for 18 days, pick-up from airport, in-country transportation, train to/from Krakow/Prague, museum entrance fees, cultural events, guest lectures and site visits. Airfare not included.
