ANTHROPOLOGY 2: Cultural Anthropology
An introduction to the anthropological concept of culture and to the methods and theories used in the comparative analysis of cultures. Cultural practices and institutions are examined using perspectives that enhance effective participation in a culturally diverse world. In this class, we will be immediately applying that knowledge by conducting original research in Salzburg, focusing on a specific research question about ethnic identity and immigration. This is a fantastic opportunity for beginning an academic career and a unique opportunity for those who learn best through practical application. This class is fully transferrable.

Salzburg is considered by many to be one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. With a population of about 150,000, Salzburg is situated in the heart of Europe on the northern edge of the eastern Alps right at the Austrian-German border. Surrounded by picturesque mountains and lakes the city still mirrors in its historical center – a declared UNESCO World Heritage Site – more than thousand years of European history and culture. Its rich and vibrant cultural heritage is reflected in concerts, festivals and a great variety of events throughout the year. Join us in the city of Mozart and the Sound of Music to see for yourself what an ideal setting Salzburg is to study abroad.
Salzburg College is located in the KunstQuartier (ArtQuarter) in the heart of the right side of old town. The core building itself dates back to the 15th century and was originally utilized for various purposes. Beginning in 1802 the building housed the Salzburger Druckerei (Salzburg Press) for over 200 years. The extensive KunstQuartier complex is also home to numerous other distinguished institutions. The university library, the Mozart Archives, museum and galleries are in easy walking distance. The farmers’ market, coffee shops, pubs, local eateries, bookstores, boutiques, pastry shops, and bakeries are all just steps away from the College's downtown location.
