Program Description:


The best way to learn a foreign language is to live within its culture and use it every day. In addition to being the most efficient way to learn a language, living abroad can introduce the individual to new places, new experiences, and all the new perspectives and ideas found in another culture. Through study abroad, students develop important intercultural competencies that will serve them throughout their lives. Bowling Green State University's Summer Salzburg Program, offered in partnership with Internationale Sprachkurse (ISK) and the Universitat Salzburg, provides this opportunity to all those seeking to take advantage of top-quality German language instruction in a beautiful, historically rich setting.
The program, established in 1970, consists of core language courses supplemented with additional instruction in the areas of language and culture pedagogy. You may choose to participate in the first, second, or both sessions of the summer semester. For each three-week course completed, you will receive four BG issue credits. These credits are also transferable to other colleges and universities. A valuable experience in its own right, the summer program is also an excellent preparation for the BG issue academic year abroad in Salzburg.

1st Session:  July 3 to July 21, 2023

Salzburg, Austria. The city and region offer an abundance of natural and cultural resources. Vibrant by day and by night, Salzburg is dotted with theaters, classical music venues, museums, galleries, excellent restaurants, cafés, and shops. Look beyond the city and you will see mountains! Salzburg is less than one hour from rugged peaks and alpine lakes that offer great opportunities to hike, bike, or just relax. It is also a great travel hub, with destinations in Central, Eastern, and Southern Europe just hours away.
