SALZBURG ACADEMY ON MEDIA & GLOBAL CHANGE

 

The Salzburg Academy on Media & Global Change is a unique study abroad program held each year in Salzburg, Austria. Sixty to seventy students and a dozen faculty attend from all five continents to create a dynamic, online Global Media Literacy curriculum.
