Media Academy » About » About

This is NOT another study abroad.

The Academy is premised on providing the following opportunities to its participants: 

  • Students will join a global student body of emerging leaders in media fields around the world, learning from diverse faculty, and integrating into a global community like few others.
  • Faculty will join a network of active researchers and teachers, producing scholarship that pushes the boundaries of thinking into global spaces.
  • All participants will become part of Salzburg Global Seminar's network of over 26,000 living alumni, and 15 partner schools, that actively engage in strategic partnerships and projects across all disciplines, across the world.

The big idea:

The Salzburg Global Media Academy should not be seen as simply a student study abroad program, but a core part of a new innovation space that explores media literacy & global change.

Students and faculty will have the chance to lead global research projects, involve students in year round explorations on media literacy, engaged citizenship, and global participation.
