Student Clubs & Activities

 

It isn’t all books and lectures here at the University of New York in Prague!

Whether you’re an aspiring Messi, a budding debate champion, a star of the small screen or you prefer the life of the mind, you’ll find friends at UNYP with similar tastes.

Here are a few possibilities.

  • Debating Society

     

    The Debating Society is one of the leading academic clubs at UNYP. Upon its re-establishment in 2015, it has managed to achieve a great success. For example, members of the society participated in the first Oxford Debate Competition held in Prague, and even won the second one. Regular meetings are held in format of British Parliamentary Debates, we host workshops and sometimes informal debate meetings.

    The unique feature of this club is that it is always open to changes and new ideas. You do not only develop your public speaking skills and build up valid arguments, but you also get to learn quite a lot about various issues in the world.

    Students debate about the hot topics in the news as well as what is close to their interests. The UNYP Debating Society also closely collaborates with the MUNYP and has been involved in a number of international competitions.

  • Communication Studies Society

     

    Welcome to the Communication Studies Society!

    The Communication Studies Society is intended to provide a forum for interaction and exploration among the UNYP community interested in communication and media issues. Specifically, the aim is to take issues out of the classroom and seek answers by engaging with the sources!

    We want to go places, see things, ask questions, and be permanently out of the box!

    What does that mean?

    • Ever wonder how some companies get away with misleading advertising? Attending a meeting at the Council for Radio and TV Broadcasting can provide insight. Feel that journalists are contributing to negative feelings in society with their stories about refugees? Visiting major news organizations like CNN or Reuters and asking journalists could be a solution.
    • Want to work at Disney? Google? Ogilvy? Our Communication Alumni are at the best companies and can tell you what it is like.
    • Want to do some academic research to help you get into a good grad school? Let’s put on a conference! Want to meet communication students from other Czech universities and compare what you study? Why not set up an exchange and share ideas!

    Come to our meetings and let’s share ideas about what we are interested in, and how to go about taking our curiosity out of the classroom and into the wider community.

  • Literature Club

     

    The purpose of the club is to create a cozy and friendly environment for students to communicate and analyze a wide range of literary works (narratives, screenplays, theatrical plays, novels, short stories, poems, comics, manga, folktales) from different perspectives, such as, for example, psychological, literary and historical; and then discuss the material and share various points of view. This may be beneficial for students of all majors as it may contribute to the development of analyzing, creative, and evaluating skills.

     

    Club Activities:

    •  We will have an agreed-upon list that will consist of various types of literature so everyone will be able to find something appealing to them; also members will be able to suggest literature that they are interested in;
    • We will have meetings once in two-four weeks to discuss and analyze the scheduled literature;
    • Each meeting will be themed according to a specific literary genre (e.g. detective, fantasy, science fiction, romance, horror, etc.);
    • We will also have movie nights because the screenplay is also taken as literature and a certain amount of literary works have film adaptations. We will analyze and discuss films as well;
    • When the COVID-19 situation allows it, we will organize theatre trips.
