Creative Writing Summer in Prague
May 24-June 23, 2019
The Creative Writing Summer in Prague program offers students the opportunity to live as writers abroad in one of Europe’s most spellbinding cities. Trace the steps of Kafka and Kundera as you navigate the narrow cobblestone streets. Live, study, and create amid Prague's Gothic elegance and contemporary artistic atmosphere. Tours and field trips complement the course and students are allowed ample independent time to explore the city and surrounding regions and pursue their own stories.
The Prague study program is open to all Columbia majors, both undergrad and graduate-level. Global Awareness credit applies.
Session fees: $3100
Session fees include housing in shared apartments, airport transfer, transit passes for the duration of the program, use of classroom space including printing and photocopies, a city tour, Prague Fringe Theater festival tickets, a traditional Czech night out of music and dancing, a tour of the Jewish museum, visits to the Museum of Communism and Kafka museum, a Prague castle visit, an excursion to Terezin concentration camp, and welcome and end-of-session dinners.
