These courses are immersive and are aligned within the following disciplinary trajectories:

  • Language, intercultural communication
  • Culture, history, politics, entrepreneurial studies
  • Media studies

  • Internships (supplemented by a mentored practicum)
  • Guided research opportunities are also an available option for students seeking to hone their capacity to conduct research independently within foreign settings/circumstances

CzechMates offers an unmatched opportunity for educational growth and professional development for those seeking to work in the international realm. Through its design, it provides a select range of course options, applicable to all majors but focused broadly on communications and general education, such as, language, history, politics, media, processes of globalization and professional development. The course cluster design is specifically configured to provide integrated as well as context-specific learning, meaningful internship appointments, and an enhanced level of personal attention and educational support under the auspices of a director with extensive experience in international education and student mentoring abroad.
