Summer with Maricopa

Six weeks of summer programs for students and faculty from Maricopa Community Colleges are now underway at Prague College.

Students and professors are undertaking a study of the culture, politics, history, economics and arts of the region.

"Classes are run according to the interests of our partners at Maricopa: political ideologies, history of art, and a comprehensive faculty program," explains Prague College director Douglas Hajek.

In addition to a daily lecture program, our guests have a rich program of cultural tours, including trips to Cesky Krumlov and Budapest.

Among the guest lecturers from Prague are Jiri Pehe, Jan Machacek, Otto Urban and Natasa Babic.
