Overall Experience
A new sense of the world. I also learned a little bit of the Czech language and how the EU and the Schengen zone work. it was very worthwhile. - University of Maine - Orono View Entire Review
Definitely worthwhile! Gained a broader knowledge of international cultures and social issues. - Barnard College View Entire Review
I learned about a whole new culture and way of life. I was able to explore 11 other countries and get a feel for what living in Prague and other countries was like. I learned how to interact with many different kinds of people and how to be savvy and patient in a new city,country,culture and language. It was probably the most wo... - Minnesota State University, Mankato View Entire Review
I learned a lot about how a country can make the rapid transition from communism to capitalism in 20 years. Also, I learned that of all the places I have been (nearly every major city in Western Europe) Prague is definitely one of the most beautiful. - University of the Pacific View Entire Review
Learned about new interests like Art History. - California State University - Fresno View Entire Review
City was so safe- walking around at night and all was a worry-free experience. Best 4 months of my life- I'd recommend Prague to anyone. Definitely different, but in the best way possible. - University of Maine at Orono View Entire Review
Learned so much about myself, made great friends, and learned so many intangibles that can't be explained. - University of Arkansas - Fayetteville View Entire Review
It was definitely worth it. After the program, too, I stayed in Europe and backpacked for four weeks. It opened my eyes to what's out there and made me so much readier to take on the rest of the world. Prague is such a great, central location and it has such a long, rich history that I fell in love with it. The locals are gr... - University of Texas - Dallas View Entire Review

A student studying abroad with USAC: Prague, Czech Republic - Politics, Culture and Art Studies
I would never choose staying at my home university compared to studying abroad in Prague. The experience was truly amazing. Prague still holds an incredible place in my heart and even a year later when I close my eyes- I'm walking the ancient, winding, cobbled streets of Prague at sunset. Every inch of Prague is soaked in histor... - Kent State University View Entire Review
I gained a more international perspective. It's a very humbling experience being a non-native speaker of a national language. I gained self-confidence by dealing with situations that were very foreign to me all by myself. It was absolutely a worthwhile experience. - University of Maine at Orono View Entire Review
i learned a lot about myself by putting myself in challenging situations. I've made reactions that surprised me but now i understand why i made those reactions. - University of the Pacific View Entire Review
I gained courage and confidence that I can find my way home - even in a foreign country where I don't know the language. I also had a wonderful cultural immersion. - University of Texas - Arlington View Entire Review
I wish I could live in Prague! I miss it so much! the people, the language, the beer! I plan on going back and living there until I feel homesick for america or until I am completely fluent. - University of the Pacific View Entire Review
It was definitely worthwhile, if you have the opportunity with your parents consent to study abroad you absolutely have to! Plus the friends you make, as corny as this sounds, will last forever as will the most wonderful memories. It's all about what you make it so make sure to live it up. - California State University - Chico View Entire Review

YES! Studying abroad in Prague with USAC = great friends, memories, crazy stories, all nighters, learning about new cultures, amazing Czech beer, personal growth, and a semester I'll never forget! check out my blog about my travels! wanderlustness.blogspot.com - University of North Dakota View Entire Review
Yes. I learned about a new place and culture. I learned about new foods. I became a more independent and confident person, and further showed myself that I can be a citizen of the world. I made great friendships. I saw unbelievable things. I could go on for days, but I will simply say that I don't think it's a stretch to say tha... - Rice University View Entire Review

About

The Prague program is ideal for students interested in studying and living in an extraordinary medieval city. Prague is an open textbook of modern and traditional literature, art, architecture, and culture surrounded by the beautiful architecture of the city, its walls, castles, and frescoes. You will learn the basics of the Czech language in two-week Czech intensive course offered at the beginning of each semester. Each semester also includes at least two one-day field trips and an optional 1-credit Vienna and Budapest Field Study course. These are exceptional opportunities to discover the cultural and historical richness of Prague and Central Europe. You may also choose to complete an internship, which provides an unmatched opportunity to practice your language skills and gain international business experience. Stay for one semester, a full year or study in the summer and choose from a wide range of courses with a focus on Central Europe and the Czech Republic. You may take courses in politics, literature, history, business, psychology, sociology and the arts. However, the academic courses are only part of the intended value of a semester abroad. Participation in formal and informal activities, such a field trips to local castles and historical sites, form an integral part of the program.
