All classes are taught in English, mostly by European professors, and you receive regular US credit for your academic work.

Surrounded by picturesque mountains, the city still mirrors in its historical center -- a declared UNESCO World Heritage Site -- more than a thousand years of European history and culture.

The trip includes visits to Munich and Neuschwanstein. Classes are small and students receive individual attention. Course work is 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.

To support the overall Austrian experience, two courses are required of all students wanting to study a semester at Salzburg College: Understanding Austria: History, Politics and Culture and one German Language course.
