Internatio‚Äčnal Summer Program 2012 - European Studies/Ge‚Äčrman (European Studies)

The annual summer program of the Sommerhochschule of the University of Vienna.

The International Summer Program 2011 will take place from July 14th to August 11th 2012.The four week program offers high level European Studies courses in the morning and German Language courses in the afternoon. The European Studies courses are held in English and focus on Europe and the European Union. They cover political, economic, and legal, but also historical and cultural aspects of the multiple transformations the continent is currently undergoing.

More information about the Sommerhochschule and the International Summer Program can be found at our homepage at http://shs.univie.ac.at.

Given the intercultural and interdisciplinary aspect of the International Summer Program our course offerings are, without question, of interest for students from all fields of study, but certainly of special interest for students who concentrate on Europe or study one of the following fields: European Studies, Political Science, Law (International Law, European Law, Comparative Law), Economics, History, Cultural Studies, International Relations, Interdisciplinary Studies, and German.

Students from all over the world have been drawn to the program, not only because of its outstanding academic reputation and the excellent opportunities it offers students to study German, but also because of its location directly on the shores of Lake Wolfgang, one of Austria's most scenic lakes in the picturesque Salzkammergut region and because of the excellent sports and recreational facilities.

The campus life creates an environment which encourages intercultural and social exchange and favours mutual understanding within the international student population. Participants thus broaden their horizon, meet colleagues from different fields of study, make friends for life and build connections for their future professional careers.

For further information or special requests please contact the Program Coordinator, Ms. Nina Gruber, at sommerhochschule@univie.ac.at. It will be my pleasure to be of assistance and to answer any questions you might have.
