The Prague program includes a three-day trip to southern Bohemia and a one-day excursion to the Nazi concentration camp in Terezin as well as visits to various sites in Prague. Located in the “heart of Europe,” Prague provides an ideal location for further explorations.

HON 300 Topics: Diversity Through Visual Culture

Dr. Zbynek Smetana

An interdisciplinary exploration, in study-abroad settings, of the visual arts, architecture, music, and theatre. The course provides students with bases of a largely contextual understanding of how various historical periods have expressed their world-views artistically. Students will better understand the diversity of political, economic, religious, social, and aesthetic traditions which are the foundations of arts, thus giving students a sense of the history of ideas.

CD 496 International Speech Pathology

Prof. Megan Smetana

A study abroad course that provides students with an opportunity to learn about cultural and social differences in the Czech Republic for speech-language pathology services. Students will also learn about the scope of practice and educational requirements for speech-language pathologists in the Czech Republic. This will provide students with a background on the differences between the delivery of speech-language pathology services in the Czech Republic and those in the U.S.

All KIIS course credit is awarded by Western Kentucky University. Prior to your KIIS program, please speak with your home campus academic advisor and/or study abroad office to determine course equivalencies. Grades will be transferred to your home institution in mid-August after the completion of the program. Course offerings are subject to change according to enrollment. For more information, visit Transcripts & Grades.

Program Excursions

Historic Center & Prague Castle

The first organized cultural experience is a walking tour through the historic center of Prague introducing all of the essential sites. This walking tour culminates with a welcome dinner. The following day, the group visits the Prague Castle, a UNESCO World Heritage site and a complex dating back to the 9th century.

National Theatre

The group will have the opportunity to attend an opera performance at the historic National Theatre. Dating from 1868, the theatre is a monument to the rich, artistic tradition of Czech history and art.

Old Jewish Quarter

Students will have the opportunity as a group to visit the world-famous Jewish Quarter in Prague. This is one of the best preserved collections of synagogues, historical buildings, and monuments in the whole of Europe, documenting the history of Jews in central Europe before the Holocaust.
