Summer schools


The Faculty of Social Sciences is also devoted to organization of the summer schools. These are organised either by the Faculty institutes or in cooperation with foreign partners. Among those with longstanding tradition is The TFAS Prague (former The American Institute for Economic and Political Systems) organised by the American foundation The Fund for American Studies (TFAS). In cooperation with Charles university this summer event has been held each year since 1993. Several dozens of international students participate the Prague program which is traditionally concluded with a remarkable ceremony in the university historical Carolinum hall with participation of a leading figure from politics or international relations.

Another longstanding summer activity organised in cooperation with the American foundation Leadership exChange is the summer school Global Leadership Program, aimed at development of leadership, intercultural and social skills.

In cooperation with the Faculty of Social Sciences Charles University the TFAS organisation regularly organizes a Summer School TFAS Prague.

Come to TFAS Prague to join young leaders from North America, Europe, the Middle East, North Africa, and Central Asia and explore fundamental issues related to political philosophy, political economy, and conflict management. Accredited through Charles University, one of Europe’s oldest and most prestigious universities, the three-week long academic program challenges participants to engage in dialogue with a diverse group of peers, faculty, and guest lecturers in the classroom and as they experience Prague together.

The program’s academic goal is to engage students in a thorough and philosophical examination of government, economics, society and culture, and conflict management. The interdisciplinary course is divided into four components and taught by a team of professors from prestigious universities in the United States who will give daily reading assignments which students are expected to complete.  Classes are scheduled in the mornings and afternoons, and students will receive 9 ECTS credit hours (equivalent to 4.5 U.S. credit hours) from Charles University upon successful completion of the program.

More detailed information including dates of the event and admission process could be found here.
