Salzburg Academy on Media & Global Change
Summer Session, July 17 – August 6
JOIN THE 10th ANNIVERSARY YEAR OF THE SALZBURG ACADEMY PROGRAM!
ALL UNDERGRADS, MASTERS & PhD STUDENTS ARE ELIGIBLE
For three weeks every summer, undergraduate, masters and doctoral students from five continents and leading universities around the world come together in Austria, to work on real projects that address global problems, such as poverty, sustainability and human rights.
Students work in teams with faculty mentors, visiting journalists and officers from partnering international organizations, including the United Nations and the Red Cross/Red Crescent.
Students receive credit for two 400 / 700-level courses (6 credits total) — cross-listed with Journalism, American Studies, Government & Politics and the Honors College. The courses also meet Understanding Plural Societies/Cultural Competence & Scholarship in Practice Gen Ed requirements.
Students live and work at Schloss Leopoldskron, an 18th century Baroque palace in the Austria Alps — most famously used as the movie location for the “Sound of Music” film. The palace was also the site for last year’s Chanel fashion show — and Salzburg is also home to the world-famous Salzburg Music Festival and the Red Bull Salzburg football (soccer) team.
