The CSB/SJU study abroad program in Austria has a dual focus: German language and European history, culture, art, and politics. Students live and study in the baroque city of Salzburg, surrounded by alpine mountains. One semester of college German or equivalent proficiency is required for this program. While in Salzburg each student enrolls in a German course appropriate to his or her skill level. In addition to the language courses, the program offers course in art history, political science, and philosophy as well as the Study Abroad Seminar taught by the CSB/SJU faculty director. All courses, except language courses, are taught in English. Students live in international student dormitories and have the opportunity to engage in Austrian life and culture through program excursions.
