As a British accredited university, research is an integral part of all Bachelor's and Master's degree programmes taught at Prague College. Students learn how to become effective researchers, able to source and utilise pertinent resources to inform their own work. Prague College is able to support and foster this learning process through our outstanding academic teams. All three Schools boast lecturers with published works who continue their own education and actively research current topics in their field. This ensures not only relevance in the curriculum, but also the highest level of expertise which can be shared with students.
The breadth of subjects students research and the final projects and theses which manifest as a result, are a reflection of the diversity of our student body and its talent. With an impressive progression rate of graduates who continue from Bachelor's to Master's level study and beyond, research is a fundamental part of the higher education experience at Prague College which students respond to positively.
Interdisciplinary research and college-wide research projects related to our living futures initiative are encouraged both among lecturers and students, with the possibility for publication.
Centre for Research and Interdisciplinary Studies (CRIS)
The Centre for Research and Interdisciplinary Studies (CRIS) promotes and develops the common research and development needs of the college. The empirical material for the research projects are based on on-going creative, entrepreneurial and enterprise projects involving various academic and business communities. Our research activities are tied closely to the learning experience of the students and aims at investigating and describing areas of knowledge that are important for the academic development of the college, as well as for the local and international community at large.
The main aims of the centre are to:
- Promote an environment that motivates academic research.
- Participate in developing seminars and presentations in relevant multidisciplinary fields at national and international conferences.
- Organise our keynote annual conferences and the regular Master Speaker Series.
- Encourage students at both the undergraduate and postgraduate levels to publish and present their work.
- Publish relevant research in the form of a regular bulletin.
The CRIS Bulletin has been particularly successful, attracting outstanding contributions from our students and lecturers, alongside researchers and academics from around the world. The bulletin is produced by Prague College and published by de Gruyter academic publishers on the Versita imprint.
