NEW SOUTHEASTERN STUDY ABROAD
BASED IN AUSTRIA
HAMMOND -- Southeastern Louisiana
University students can earn up to six hours credit in Salzburg, Austria,
this summer through a new university study abroad program.
The Southeastern-Salzburg International
Summer School is scheduled July 5-29 and offers courses in political science,
history and music, said faculty coordinator Kurt Corbello, associate professor
of political science.
“For centuries an important center
of European politics, music, and art, Salzburg offers an exceptional intellectual
and cultural feast,” Corbello said. He said the summer study program will
offer “the experience of a lifetime in one of the most beautiful and historic
cities in the heart of Europe.”
Corbello said students have until
March 1 to sign-up and pay fees for the program. The cost of $2,725 includes
tuition, round trip transportation between the Munich airport and Salzburg,
some meals, guest lectures and presentations, city tours, and visits to
museums, historical sites, concerts. It also includes lodging at Kolpinghaus,
a private student residence facility in Salzburg. Not included are airfare,
evening meals, and personal travel-related expenses. Financial aid and
scholarships are available.
Corbello said the field trips
will include a Mozart Dinner Concert at Stiftskeller St. Peter, founded
by Benedictine monks in the 9th century, and a visit to Adolf Hitler’s
“Eagles Nest” near Berchdesgarten.
Corbello will be joined on the faculty by Southeastern colleagues
Judith Fai-Podlipnik, associate professor of history, and Joy Ratliff,
assistant professor of music. First Circuit Court of Appeals Judge James
E. Kuhn, an adjunct professor at Southeastern, is program co-coordinator
and will also present guest lectures.
“You can study music in the birthplace
of Mozart and the city of ‘The Sound of Music,’ and European history, politics
and American foreign policy in a country at the crossroads of Europe,”
Since a maximum of 30 students
will be accepted in the program early application with payment of a $100
non-refundable deposit is advised to reserve a place. Students must be
18 years of age or older, in good academic standing, and enrolled at Southeastern
for the summer 2004 term to be eligible to apply. Applicants must also
have two letters of recommendation from Southeastern faculty members.
Corbello said community members
are welcome to enroll in the program through options such as the university’s
Special Program for Adults.
Southeastern also offers study
abroad programs in Costa Rica, Italy, Germany, France, England and Honduras,
