The semester of study in Europe is the hallmark of the Alderson-Broaddus College international studies programs and offers the students the best opportunity for international study, travel, and experiencing international culture.
The Austria Program provides the students with a semester of study (12 semester hours) at the Alderson-Broaddus College Campus in Salzburg, Austria, at Haus Wartenberg, and travel opportunities throughout Europe. A-B is the lead college in a consortium of five colleges that also includes Eastern University, Franklin College, Judson College, and Keuka College.
The courses include subjects taught by faculty chosen from the consortium colleges and are designed to help meet the students' liberal studies requirements and or majors or minors. A German language course taught by an Austrian German language professor is also required. Each student may also arrange for independent studies as long as the total hours for the semester do not exceed 18. Music lessons may be arranged with professors from the Mozarteum at an addition fee. Room and board and tuition are the same as those for on campus students. A program fee to cover roundtrip airfare, ground transportation, and a Eurail train pass is in addition to these costs.
