In addition to the mandatory core courses, students attend courses at all faculties of Charles University as well as at Czech University of Technical Engineering. In total, approximately 800 courses in English are offered each semester. Elective courses are taught primarily by Czech/European faculty.
Not all major and minor academic programs at Endicott are taught at Charles University — just as there are many interesting majors at Charles University that Endicott College does not offer. Therefore, before you begin looking at electives, you might want to look at the enclosed document. It lists academic programs that are offered at BOTH Charles University and Endicott College.
Below is a list of electives for the academic year 2017/2018. The offering the in the next academic year will change only marginally.
Language classes and classes taught in foreign languages
Students can study foreign (i.e. non-Czech and non-English) languages but only from the intermediate level up. There are no foreign language classes conducted in English for beginners. We recommend taking only the more advanced classes which are conducted exclusively in the language of choice and use a textbook in that language.
Foreign languages are used as languages of instruction in some classes – for instance German, Norwegian etc. at the department of Germanic Studies, Italian, Spanish or French at the department of Romance Languages and Literatures etc. Teachers of such classes expect from their students an advanced command of a given language.
You can also browse on your own the Charles University Student Information System for courses using the following strategy:
– go to the Information System website of Charles University
– click on the icon Subjects, make sure you set a correct academic year in Setup (on the main, green horizontal menu. Then use the options to restrict your selection: language of instruction, semester (winter = fall semester in the U.S., summer = spring semester in the U.S.), key word, the name of a college, or others.
