International Students 

Are you interested in media and culture? Do you want to learn more about film, theatre, television, and radio? At our department, you can study them either in a combined form, or you can fully focus on a particular field. Leading our students to critical thinking about media, we underscore that to understand culture and media means to perceive them in the social, historical, and material context. Moreover, you will learn a great deal about Czech culture and experience it.

Exchange students can attend various courses in English at our department. You can choose between analysis seminars, theoretical discussions, lectures on media and theatre history, or practice-oriented workshops. You’re also very welcome to consult any of your research interests with the members of our department.

Furthermore, our department participates in the organization of many film and performance festivals (such as Academia Film Olomouc, PAF, and the Flora Theatre Festival) and every Wednesday, our students host screenings organized by the film club Pastiche Filmz. These and many other department-related events provide great opportunities to discover both classic pieces and current tendencies in performance and audiovisual culture.
