UMW EUSA Prague Internships
|Spend your summer honing your professional skills on this 8-week program in Prague, Czech Republic including one week of orientation and a seven-week internship. From the arts to politics, business to communications, healthcare, education, media, law or NGO’s, the EUSA Prague placement team will provide a broad spectrum of intellectually stimulating internships based on your preferred industry sector and personal goals.
Students will live in an apartment complex especially designed for student use. The fully furnished apartments consist of shared kitchen, living area, and bathroom, internet connections and on-site laundry facilities.
Students will earn up to 6 transfer credits for the 7-week internship. A few months before the program students will have an internship consultation meeting with the placement team via Skype and will be assigned a provisional placement based on skills, professional goals and interests. Most students will learn of their provisional placement prior to departure for Prague, others will learn upon arrival. Once in Prague, students will have an on-site interview with the placement supervisor and internships will be finalized. Each internship experience will be monitored through a mid-point review and feedback.
This course satisfies the Experiential Learning General Education Requirement.
