Salzburg College was founded in 1970 as a small, private institution with a mission to integrate classroom study with on-site experience. Classes are small and students receive individual attention. Several areas of concentration are available and offered in two six-week terms, allowing students to concentrate on two or three courses of their choice. Classroom work and field experience are integrated with excursions, guest lectures, and interaction with local professionals, an important part of the program. To complement coursework, students participate in organized day trips to nearby towns and a four-day field trip to Vienna throughout their time at the College.
Additional features: The program begins with a four day academic trip, providing a hands-on introduction to the region and an opportunity to meet other students. Interested students can sign up for an internship to explore Austrian perspectives and practices at the workplace.
Located in the heart of Salzburg's Old City, Salzburg College is just down the street from the main hub of the public bus system, greatly facilitating commuting. Situated in the heart of Europe, Salzburg is ideally located for travel.
The College Consortium for International Studies (CCIS), a partnership of colleges and universities—two and four year, large and small, public and private, domestic and foreign—encompasses the broad spectrum of international higher education. CCIS members sponsor a variety of programs, notably study abroad programs and professional development seminars for faculty and administrators, which are designed to enhance international/intercultural perspectives within the academic community.
