Program Overview

Salzburg College is a small, private institution located in the heart of Salzburg's Old City. Salzburg College was founded in 1970 and started out as a classical European Studies Program. 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 10,000 students from over 500 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. 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.

Academics & Program

Salzburg College in Salzburg

The study center of Salzburg College is located in the  KunstQuartier (ArtQuarter) on Bergstrasse. The core building itself dates back to the 15th century and was originally utilized for various purposes. Beginning in 1802, the building housed the Salzburger Druckerei (Salzburg Press) for over 200 years. The last printing machine was dissembled in 2008 after 200 years in operation.  In addition to a recital hall and private atrium, the location also offers the following amenities: class rooms, art studio, dark room, library, study space, spacious lounge and music practice rooms. 

The close vicinity of public, educational and cultural institutions, allows for easy integration of classroom study and on-site experience which is a major objective of the Salzburg College program.  You will find the university library, the Mozart Archives, museum and galleries in easy walking distance. The local farmers market, coffee shops, local eateries, bookstores, boutiques, pastry shops and bakeries are all just steps away from the College's downtown location. Bergstrasse is also near the main intersecting point of the Salzburg public bus system which greatly facilitates the commuting to and from the Austrian host family homes and the dormitories.


Courses are taught in English by European professors.

"I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Salzburg College. The education I received here occurred both inside and outside of the school itself and I will carry it with me forever. Salzburg is a wonderful town and it is perfectly located to facilitate travel to the rest of Europe.
