Study Abroad in Salzburg: Academics

Academic Programs

Academic credit for the AIFS Salzburg program is awarded by Fairfield University.  Fairfield University is a private Jesuit university founded in 1942 in Fairfield, Connecticut, well known for their commitment to international education. Fairfield is a fully accredited university and member of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges.

In 2020 Fairfield and AIFS partnered to develop a school of record relationship that will allow academic credit to be available for both Fairfield and non-Fairfield students. It is our collective goal that access to credit and financial aid options will increase access and opportunities for students.

The Salzburg faculty credentials are reviewed and approved by Fairfield University.

Courses include: anthropology, art history, business, economics, German language, history, international relations, literature, music, philosophy, politics, 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 one history course. Students take up to 5 semester courses. Each course is recommended for 3 semester credits. Classes are held Monday through Friday. AIFS strongly encourages students to take a German language course as one of their courses for a full cultural immersion experience and to enable them 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.

Students wishing to stay for a full year may not exceed a total of 27 credits without permission of the Resident Director. Please contact the AIFS Admissions Officer for details.

No AIFS participant is permitted to take a course without receiving a grade. Pass/Fail options are not available.

Session/Term Credits Requirements
Fall or Spring Semester up to 15 2.5 GPA; German language not required
