Program Description:



May 5 - May 27, 2019

Program Description: Prague, Vienna, and Budapest will offer unique and rich opportunities for students to grow in their appreciation of Central and Eastern European culture. In addition, the students’ experiences will be enhanced by their ability to study in these historic cities, and grow in their appreciation and understanding of different cultures and customs. The program not only presents an opportunity to study in Vienna, Austria, one of Europe’s most important international and commercial centers, but also to study in Hungary and the Czech Republic; two regions that existed for decades behind the Iron Curtain and under the sphere of communism.  

Please note: Prospective students should be aware that study abroad programs require a great deal of walking. You should be prepared to walk several miles a day. You may also walk over uneven, possibly slippery or rocky terrain, even in cities.

Excursions may include: Theresienstadt, which was built for a Baroque army in the 18th century. The fortress served as a prison almost from the very beginning and became notorious as a Gestapo prison, Jewish Ghetto and concentration camp in World War II; the Sigmund Freud Museum; and a day trip to Kutná Hora, a silver mining town in medieval times. The visits may also include touring the Church of St. Barbara and the Ossuary at Sedlec, the eerie bone church, decorated with multiple sculptures of the bones of 40,000 plague victims and more.

Accommodations: Students will stay in budget hotels. The accommodations may vary, but at times students will stay in rooms holding up to five people. A light breakfast and one other meal will be provided daily.  Students are also responsible for the purchase of the third meal, as well as their own snacks and drinks.

The program cost is made up of the application fee and program fee (airfare included).  All fees are paid at your home institution. Students are also required to pay a nonrefundable application fee of $100 by February 1. This fee will be paid through your Study Abroad application.
