Internships for Prague, Czech Republic

Internships in Prague are offered during the semester and yearlong terms. Internships are optional and are included in your program fees. They range from 1-3 credits and are counted as part of your credit load. Interns earn credit, but no financial compensation. In addition to professional and academic experience, internships are a great way to immerse yourself in the culture, meet locals, and practice your language skills. Placements are in an English-speaking environment, but some knowledge of Czech language is helpful.

Past internship placements in Prague have included:

  • The Fulbright Commission in Prague
  • National Library archives
  • Erste Bank
  • HAMU-Academy of Music
  • NGOs
  • Cultural centers and associations
  • Art agencies and/or galleries
  • Institute of International Relations
  • US Embassy in Prague
  • International businesses and banks
  • Glass-making internship at the glassworks

Eligibility:

  • Minimum 3.0 GPA
  • Junior standing (at time of internship)
  • Foreign language proficiency (some placements)

Beginning in Summer 2021, a non-refundable internship placement fee will be required of all students participating in an in-person USAC internship. This fee helps offset the costs of securing quality internship placements and helps provide a range of professional development activities, including an online internship seminar, career workshops, and panel discussions. The fee amount has not been finalized but will be announced in the near future.

Placement is not guaranteed by USAC; rather it will be determined by your application, supporting materials, and an interview with the internship sponsor on site.
