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. Close to 8,000 students from over 400 American colleges and universities have attended the institution. Salzburg is considered by many to be one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. With a population of about 150,000, Salzburg is situated in the heart of Europe on the northern edge of the eastern Alps right at the Austrian-German border. 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. Its rich and vibrant cultural heritage is reflected in concerts, festivals and a great variety of events throughout the year.
All of the above make Salzburg the ideal setting for a "European experience."
- Ideally located for travel, Salzburg is less than four hours by train from Vienna
- Only two hours from Munich, and an overnight train ride from Paris or Venice
- Several Eastern European countries are within easy reach.
