Signature Experiences

Prague Study Abroad

TTU offers an opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students to study for a month in Prague, concentrating not only on international perspectives in the arts, but also offering personal and backstage tours of many of the most famous theatres in the Czech Republic. Students travel within and outside of Prague, meeting with arts administrators, theatre practitioners, and cultural ambassadors to learn best practices in funding, marketing, and preserving the arts.

Not only do students live abroad for the month, truly embracing the culture of Prague and nearby towns in the area, but they also travel for one long weekend to any city of their choice—from Berlin to Vienna to Amsterdam. During their tenure abroad, students respond to prompts specific to their area of specialization, sharing their findings in a university classroom there.

The Arts in Prague involves students in art, music, and theatre and dance who learn the best and most contemporary interdisciplinary theory based on practice and research. Participants often attend and/or participate in the Prague Fringe Theatre Festival, where they learn from theatre makers from around the world.
