Global Media in Salzburg – Summer Program

The Moody College of Communication is partnering for the 13th year with The Salzburg Academy on Media and Global Change and now accepting applications for Summer 2020. Held annually in Salzburg, Austria, the Salzburg Academy hosts 75 university students from over 20 countries. In a sense, the world comes to Salzburg, Austria. Our University of Texas students engage with participants, visiting media experts, NGO professionals, and international faculty.

The Academy is a 3-credit UT course (taught in English) on Global Media Literacy, and is perfect for students who want a global perspective – beyond a specialization in any single country. Students will explore how digital media technologies are shaping civic engagement, activism, and innovation in a global media age – to say it is relevant to current events is understatement.

Students receive COM 325 which works for all Moody Communication elective credit. It is also pre-approved for the following:
· Global Cultures flag
· IRG Culture, Media, and Arts track
· Bridging Disciplines Program – Media, Culture & Identities (Identities, Communities & Place strand)

Applications are open to all students and considered on a rolling basis!

Applications due: February 10, 2020
Program dates: July 19 – August 5, 2020

Visit the Moody College International Programs website to learn more about the program, including brochures from previous programs and a letter from the UT-Austin School of Journalism & Media faculty member Prof. Stephen Reese, who has led the course since 2008. You may contact him for further information about the program (steve.reese@utexas.edu).
