ELIGIBILITY
To apply you must be a currently-enrolled, degree-seeking undergraduate UW-Eau Claire student. You must be in good academic standing, and have minimum cumulative GPA of 2.75. You may apply as a sophomore but must have junior standing when the program begins. You are attending Masaryk under the ISEP-Direct program.  ISEP-Direct students at Masaryk typically take 4-5 classes/semester, (a minimum of 24 ECTS credits) from one of the two specific program tracks.

COURSES
ISEP-Direct students can choose between one of two program tracks.  (Please note that Masaryk University offers other courses in English; however, ISEP-Direct students can only choose classes from the two programs listed below.)

The Central European Studies Program (offered fall and spring) includes study of the social, economic, political and cultural transformations that have shaped Central Europe/the Czech Republic in the 20th century, and the changes facing Europe in the beginning of the 21st century. All courses are in English; basic Czech language instruction is also included. Course titles and course descriptions are at:

TESOL (offered spring only) is a one-semester program for students interested in gaining experience teaching English to speakers of other languages (TESOL) in a cross-cultural environment. The program integrates the fundamentals of language learning theory and hands-on teaching practice. Students who successfully complete the course of study earn the internationally recognized Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults (CELTA).

In addition to the TESOL courses, you can choose from courses in applied linguistics, Czech language, and a number of courses relating to Czech cultural heritage. Find details at http://czs.muni.cz/en/in/students/studies/xprogram-tesol
