Students will stay in the university dormitory on campus and will share a room with one other MU student for the entire program in Prague. The dormitory is located in the middle of campus and just a 3-minute walk from the business building. Public transportation allows for easy and flexible access from campus to downtown Prague.

The four-week study abroad and internship program in the Czech Republic will be located in Prague, one of the most visited cities in all of Europe. It was formed from six formerly independent urban units that were unified in the 18th century: The Old Town, the Jewish Town, the New Town, the Lesser Town, Hradcany and Vysehrad were spared from bombing during the Second World War along with all of its treasured and preserved architecture and culture.

The historic center of Prague was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and Guinness World Records site. The 1,000 year-old Hradcany (Prague) Castle is the largest ancient castle in the world and overlooks the famous Charles Bridge on the Vltava River. Most of the historical monuments, museums and galleries are located in the center part. Charles Bridge, with its two fortified towers at each end, was constructed by King Charles IV in the year 1357. The Old Town Bridge Tower is located on the opposite side of the castle and represents one of the most beautiful Gothic towers in Central Europe.

The Old Town Square has existed since the 14th century and is the most significant square of historical Prague. Besides the Old Town Hall and the Church of Our Lady Before Tyn, the square has several other dominant buildings: the baroque St. Nicholas church, the Stone Bell house (a gothic city palace from the 14th century), and the Memorial to Master Jan Hus. St Nicolas' Church (Chram Sv. Mikulase), located on Malostranske Namesti was built in the period 1704-55 and is the most significant historical structure of the so-called Prague Baroque.
The courses will be conducted at the Czech University of Life Sciences, located just 15-20 minutes away from the city center.

Note: Tuition cost is set by the Board of Curators of the University of Missouri. Non-resident students pay their usual additional non-resident fees.  Provided you are taking courses necessary for graduation, this simply shifts tuition costs from one term to another.

  • Weekend travel to other parts of the Czech Republic or Europe and daily personal expenses including non-program activities
  • Meals, except for program-sponsored events
