Study Abroad Program: Culture & Politics

4-week, faculty-led, interdisciplinary Study Abroad program in Prague for June 2018

This program is a fantastic program for undergraduates who are interested in Eastern Europe but are not necessarily interested in studying a language. We expect a diverse group of students to be interested in the program, including those majoring or minoring in: anthropology, political science, sociology, ethnic studies, foreign languages (such as German and French), cultural studies, international studies, and other area studies programs. The program is hosted through the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse Office of International Education & Engagement, and in-country support will be provided by the local CEA Study Abroad office.

INFORMATION
"Culture and Politics in Prague" is a 4-week faculty-led study abroad program (June 3-30, 2018) for undergraduates that focuses on issues of modern political, social, economic, and cultural concerns in Eastern Europe. Students will earn 6 upper-division credits in political science and anthropology from the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse (UWL).

 

All classes, guest lectures, and excursion tours will be in English. In addition to class meetings, we will have excursions to local sites, including a tours of the Jewish Quarter and a bomb shelter, visits to the Museum of Communism and the Ethnographic Museum, and a trip to a local NGO. Course assignments include a reflective journal, an ongoing blog, and mini-activities to encourage students to experience the local culture on their own.

 

Non-UWL students are highly encouraged to apply. Students at other UW system campuses and at other US colleges and universities are encouraged to contact us for details.

 

Applications are due March 1, 2018. Apply at UWL Study Abroad.
