Salzburg College is a small, private institution located in the heart of Salzburg's Old City. Salzburg College was founded in 1970 and started out as a classical European Studies Program. A major objective of the Salzburg College program is the integration of classroom study and on-site experience. Small classes held in English and a dedicated faculty enhance the individual learning process.
Classes are small and students receive individual attention. Course work 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. Excursions, guest lectures, and interaction with local professionals are an important part of the program. Salzburg College faculty are European professors many of whom have also taught at American universities. Interested students can sign up for an internship to explore Austrian perspectives and practices at the workplace, thus gaining more insights into social, political, and economic aspects of the Austrian way of life.
