The International Internship program is designed for students interested in immersing themselves in Czech culture while focusing on their career development skills. You'll participate in an internship with an internationally-oriented organization or company in Prague, in addition to regular faculty-led seminars designed to clarify your career skills and goals. These workplace and academic experiences form the basis for reflective and analytic course assessments. In addition to the 3-credit internship, you can choose to enroll in electives taught in English with Czech and international students. Courses are available in an array of subjects that complement your overall experience living and working in Prague. Knowledge of Czech language is not required.
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.
