Location: Salzburg, Austria
This page is for the Summer in Salzburg faculty-led program. For the semester Salzburg College Program, click here.
The hills are alive with the sound of … opportunity.
Salzburg, literally: "Salt Castle" is the fourth-largest city in Austria, and one of the best-preserved city centers north of the Alps. The city is also the birthplace of 18th-century composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and the setting for the famous American musical: The Sound of Music.
The Salzburg College study center is located in the heart of the Old City. It occupies a 16th century town house on Ursulinenplatz, a small square flanked by a historic city gate and one of Salzburg's famous Baroque churches.
In Summer 2014, EIU's own Dr. Marilyn Coles will lead a group of students to Salzburg for the chance to learn about music and history.
Salzburg College focuses very strongly on experiential learning, requiring the students to participate in quite a few excursions and encouraging them to integrate their outside experiences into their class room work.

After Your Trip:
You will find the university library, the Mozart Archives, museum and galleries in easy walking distance. The green grocers' market, coffee shops, local eateries, bookstores, boutiques, pastry shops and bakeries are all just steps away from the College's downtown location.
The top floor library offers a spectacular view of the city across the pleasant embankments of the Salzach river. The five-story building includes classrooms, offices, library, lounge and dining room, music practice space, photo labs and an art studio. Students have classes, study, and take their lunches at the College or a nearby location.
There are five major concert halls and theatres where you can attend musical performances practically every night of the year; a number of concerts available to you during your stay and our music history class will include these performances in the course program.
The home where Mozart was born and another where Mozart's family lived, have been turned into museums. The Music University was named after Mozart, so is the city's major symphony orchestra and the Mozarteum Foundation that is responsible for the most extensive research that has ever been done on any composer.
