Excursions, Cultural Activities and Field trips
The NC State European Center believes “the world becomes your classroom,” namely the Czech Republic and Prague. Local instructors take students to relevant locations for hands-on learning. Students have visited the Museum of Communism, Old Wastewater Treatment Facility, and Center for Contemporary Art, to name a few. The included excursion to South Bohemia enhances the program. Students can pick from many optional cultural and sporting activities, such as opera, bowling, visiting a medieval castle and trekking.
