All students have the option to study German language as part of the academic program in Salzburg.

You will take courses with CSB+SJU students and other U.S. study abroad students.
For course descriptions and more information, refer to the course list linked above and the CSBSJU-Global Portal. To explore study abroad course options and how they work with the Integrations Curriculum, Common Curriculum, and departmental requirements, check out our new CGE Study Abroad Course Database.
Participants live in student dormitories with other international students. These two-person rooms offer a private bathroom, kitchen facilities, and basic amenities, including internet.
During a semester abroad, CSB+SJU students pay the same tuition as if on campus. Instead of paying for a CSB+SJU Housing and Meal Plan, all students studying abroad pay an Education Abroad Program Fee. Find Program Fee information on the CSBSJU-Global Portal.
Please note: To obtain the required visa to study on this program you will need to travel to a VFS Visa Application Center in the U.S. for visa processing (most commonly, Chicago). This is not included in your program fee. Further information about dates and processes will be provided by CGE after your acceptance to the program.
