The Business, Liberal Arts & Social Sciences Program in Prague is designed for students interested in taking courses in English at Anglo-American University (AAU) while immersing themselves in Czech culture. Students have full access to AAU's summer course list and can choose from a wide variety of courses in business, liberal arts, and social sciences. Students study alongside Czech and international students in the classroom, and because all courses are taught in English, are able to engage in their studies without previous knowledge of the Czech language. Intimate class sizes and professional AAU staff and faculty provide the ideal atmosphere for students to study and truly discover the Czech Republic..
A major economic and cultural center of the Czech Republic, Prague is a modern city that still retains the allure of a former age. The Velvet Revolution of November 1989 saw the overthrow of the Communist regime. On January 1, 1993, the Czechoslovak state was peacefully divided and the independent Czech and Slovak Republics were founded. The formerly centralized state system has since been transformed into a parliamentary democracy and market economy, with the Czech Republic joining the European Union on May 1, 2004.
Your walk to school may include a trip through a UNESCO World Heritage site or past culturally and historically rich architecture. Located in the Baroque Malá Strana quarter, Anglo-American University (AAU) offers a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in both a Czech and international higher education setting. Participate in AAU activities, sports, and clubs, or explore the city with new friends. Don't forget to check out the Strahov Monastery, Petrin, or the cubist House of the Black Madonna.
