Whether it's interning in London, studying in Spain or doing research in Germany, most Hobart and William Smith students will have had some kind of international learning experience before they graduate.
With some planning, Music majors and minors can travel abroad and still graduate on time. While the Center for Global Education offers abroad programs on six continents, programs in Norwich, England, and Prague, Czech Republic may be of interest to students studying music.
In the Norwich, England program, students have the opportunity to study at the University of East Anglia (UEA), taking classes and living alongside their British and international classmates, for a full cultural immersion experience.
The Prague program is based at Charles University, the oldest university in Central Europe, founded in 1348. Each study abroad student is assigned to a Czech 'student buddy' upon arrival to help with social and cultural integration. The city of Prague has a rich musical heritage, varied cultural activities and numerous sites of architectural beauty. Escaping the destruction of 20th century bombings, the urban design of Prague remains much as it looked in the 15th century. In addition to exploring the joys of 'tourist' Prague, study abroad students have a unique opportunity to enjoy the social and cultural amenities offered by a modern, dynamic city of approximately 1.2 million.
