Program Overview

The Global Architecture + Design program invites design, architecture, or sustainability majors or minors to create model cities that address climate change by reducing the environmental footprint of buildings. All courses are taught in English, and students take the required Future Cities Seminar; Future Cities Design Studio; and Science, Engineering, and Technology Workshop at CIEE Prague, and choice of electives at CIEE Prague and our partner institution, Architectural Institute in Prague (ARCHIP). Hands-on workshops with cutting-edge technology are led by experts from Prague’s architecture and design community. All courses are complemented with CIEE co-curricular activities and excursions beyond the city to enhance classroom learning and provide intercultural understanding.
