Study in Prague with Towson University in Summer 2013.
This 2-week program will introduce students to the key environmental, cultural, and historical processes that have helped form the modern Czech Republic.
More than 20 years after the fall of communism, Prague - the largest city and capital of the Czech Republic - is now one of Europe's most popular tourist destinations. Centrally located between east and west, the city offers students a unique opportunity to experience first-hand the more sustainable practices found in
traditional European urban areas and also the environmental legacy of policies under a communist
regime. Participants will explore contemporary environmental issues in the Czech Republic through field observation, visits to related sites, and guest lectures from local experts.
