Summer Program


BGSU offers a Summer Salzburg Program in partnership with Internationale Sprachkurse (ISK).

The program, established in 1970, consists of core language courses supplemented with numerous excursions allowing you to explore Salzburg and its surroundings.

You may participate in the July or August session, or both. For each 3-week course completed, you will receive 4 BGSU credits. These credits can be transferred to other colleges and universities.

A valuable experience in its own right, the Summer Salzburg Program is also an excel- lent preparation for the BGSU Academic Year Abroad in Salzburg.


Language Courses (4 credits)

Classes are held Monday through Friday 9:00- 10:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m.-12:30 p.m. The ISK staff is experienced and engaging, and your classroom work is enhanced by the immersion experience of everyday life in Salzburg.

Course credits are arranged according to student’s prior work in German and performance on the placement test.
