Overview

Literature is one of the primary creative acts of humankind, and the study of literature not only exercises our skills of interpretation and critical thinking, but also gives us access to the history and ideas that have shaped our world.

Take this unique opportunity to study in Central Europe with the University of New York in Prague ’s talented, international English language and literature instructors. The Czech Republic’s literary history spans languages, genres, and centuries, and includes such notables as Karel Čapek, Franz Kafka, Milan Kundera, and Bohumil Hrabal. 

Appropriately, the English Language and Literature program at University of New York in Prague includes a significant emphasis on comparative world literatures; literature in English from outside the major centers of literary production; and non-canonical literature.
