University of Redlands Salzburg Program

The University of Redlands Salzburg Program has been bringing American students to study in Austria since 1960. Looking ahead, the interdisciplinary symposium “Austrian-American Studies and the Future of Study Abroad in Austria” will gather representatives of similar programs to collaborate on ways to revitalize curricular and co-curricular activities. Framing the student experience within a trans-Atlantic perspective can help ensure the continued relevance of study abroad in Austria and Central Europe.

A musicologist by training and the first Fulbright-Botstiber Visiting Professor of Austrian-American Studies (2013) at the University of Vienna and the University of Music and the Performing Arts, Katherine Baber is currently Alice Mozley Director of the Salzburg Program and College of Arts and Sciences Associate Dean and the University of Redlands. The Salzburg programs of Bowling Green State University and the University of Portland will serve as co-hosts.
