Summer School TFAS PRAGUE 2022

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.
