Study Abroad in Salzburg: Academics

Academic Programs

Beginning with the Fall 2019 semester, academic credit for our Salzburg program will be awarded by Richmond, the American International University in London.  Richmond, which is accredited by Middle States, will review faculty credentials and approve courses offered.  Courses include anthropology, art history, business, economics, German language, history, international relations, literature, music, philosophy, politics and sociology.

Program Options

This program is designed for students wishing to take electives in international relations, business and economics, arts and humanities and German language. The majority of courses are taught in English apart from German language and some music and history courses. Students take up to 5 semester courses. Each course is recommended for 3-4 semester credits. Classes are held Monday through Friday. AIFS strongly encourages students to take a German language course as one of their 4-credit courses for a full cultural immersion experience and to enable you to participate in all aspects of Salzburg life but it is not required. A placement test on-site will determine the language course appropriate to your level.

No AIFS participant is permitted to take a course without receiving a letter grade.

Session/Term Credits Requirements
