Why Choose CCIS?


Recent changes in federal law have made it possible for students to use some or all of their federal financial aid for study abroad. Here are some facts you should know: • Financial aid may be used for study abroad. Both direct costs (instructional costs abroad, room and board) and indirect costs (books, fees, airfare, departure taxes, estimated ground transportation costs, and personal spending) of a study abroad program are included to calculate a student’s financial aid package. Once the amount of need and the student’s own contribution is determined, some students may receive federal grants or loans equal to or even greater than they receive while studying at their home institutions. • There are many forms of aid. Check with your financial aid office about federal forms of aid, including grants and loans, as well as forms of state or institutional aid that may also be available for study abroad.

• Seek approval for your participation in a study abroad program from your advisor or other appropriate faculty member or administrator on campus. Once your home institution has granted approval for participation in a study abroad program, and if you are otherwise eligible to receive financial aid, then federal forms of financial aid must be applied toward the cost of a study abroad program. • You must apply through your home institution to receive financial aid for any study abroad program you choose; once your aid package is awarded, you are responsible for making certain that all funds are forwarded to the appropriate U.S. institution which sponsors the study abroad program. • Financial aid can be used to support summer study, as long as you are enrolled for academic credit and you meet all the other requirements.

3

• It is a good idea to apply early. Early application allows your financial aid office to complete the review of your eligibility for financial aid and to get all of the paperwork done. Be sure to apply no later than fifteen weeks prior to departure. • Students from CCIS member institutions (see page on membership) can get help in applying for financial aid from their own study abroad and financial aid offices. Students from non-member institutions will find that the staff working with students going abroad at the CCIS sponsoring institutions can be of invaluable assistance in working through the process of applying for aid. The following Web site provides useful information and outlines resources available for financial aid:

A Step-By-Step Guideline to the CCIS Application Process

Step 1: When you initially contacted CCIS, did you request information about a particular program or country? Yes, I have requested specific program information. You will receive a follow-up mailing directly from the U.S. institution that sponsors the program(s) of interest, which includes detailed costs and dates, course and housing information, and application materials. If you do not receive the information within two weeks, please contact the U.S. sponsoring institution directly (contact information is provided on each program page in the brochure). No, I have not requested specific program information. Take some time and read through the CCIS Brochure to find programs that interest you, and then contact the U.S. sponsoring institutions directly to receive program details, including course information and application materials (contact information is provided on each program page in the brochure). Step 2: Contact your study abroad advisor or your academic dean to discuss the program you have selected. Review the courses offered by the program to ensure that you will receive full academic credit for courses taken overseas. Ask the program contact person to explain how grades/credits will be reported. Step 3: Submit your application for the program (see the inside back cover of the CCIS Brochure for a list of member institutions): If your school is a member of CCIS: Submit the completed materials to your study abroad advisor or academic dean on campus. If your school is not a member of CCIS: Mail the completed materials to the sponsoring institution (the program contact person). DO NOT send your application to the CCIS office in Washington, DC.

Your CCIS Study Abroad Application should include: •CCIS Study Abroad Application (from the program contact person or the CCIS Web site). •Completed Recommendation Forms (from the program contact person or the CCIS Web site). •Copies of your most current college transcripts for all collegiate level courses taken. •Additional forms specific to some CCIS programs.

Step 4: Secure financial arrangements for the program. DO THIS EARLY! If you are using financial aid to help pay for study abroad, meet with your financial aid officer and your study abroad advisor or academic dean. For information about financial aid eligibility, see page 3 of the CCIS Brochure. Step 5: When you have been accepted into the program, work with your advisor and the program contact person to register for courses overseas. Also, make arrangements to register for classes on-campus for the term after you study abroad.

Salzburg Salzburg College Program Site

Salzburg College is a small, private institution located in the heart of Salzburg’s Old City. Salzburg College was founded in 1970 and started out as a classical European Studies Program. A major objective of the Salzburg College program is the integration of Contact:

Alcidean Arias Craig Assistant Director Center for International Education Truman State University 114 Kirk Building Kirksville, MO 63501 (660) 785-4076 (660) 785-7473 (Fax) alcidean@truman.edu classroom study and on-site experience. Small classes held in English and a dedicated faculty enhance the individual learning process. The Salzburg College study center is located in the heart of the Old City. The close vicinity of public, educational and cultural institutions, allows for easy integration of classroom study and on-site experience that is a major objective of the Salzburg College program. The University Library and other research facilities (e.g. Mozart Archives) are all located in walking distance. Salzburg College is also just down the street from the main intersecting point of the Salzburg public bus system which greatly facilitates the commuting to and from the Austrian host family homes and the dormitories.

Ideally located for travel, Salzburg is less than three hours by train from Vienna, only two hours from Munich, and an overnight train ride from Paris or Venice. Several Eastern European countries are within easy reach. Academic Program Highlights

The program begins with a four-day academic trip through Bavaria that provides a hands-on introduction to the region as well as an opportunity to meet the other students. The trip includes visits to Munich and Neuschwanstein. A basic familiarity with this geographical area allows students to place Salzburg and its traditions in their appropriate cultural and historical context. It is the belief of the faculty and staff at Salzburg College that students should have a chance to maximize their learning about “European affairs” through a variety of courses depending on their focus of interest or academic discipline. Therefore, several areas of concentration are offered, such as European Studies, Communications and Marketing, Art and Photography, and Music (incl. Music Performance). Classes are small and students receive individual attention. Course work is offered in two six-week terms allowing students to concentrate on two or three courses of their

choice. Classroom work and field experience are integrated. Excursions, guest lectures, and interaction with local professionals are an important part of the program. Salzburg College faculty is Austrian professors, many of whom have also taught at American universities. Interested students can sign up for an internship to explore Austrian perspectives and practices at the workplace, thus gaining more insights into social, political, and economic aspects of the Austrian way of life.

Austria

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, the city still mirrors in its historical center - a declared UNESCO World Heritage Site - more than a 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. All of the above make Salzburg the ideal setting for a “European experience.”

Student Life

As a complement to the academic program, students take day trips to nearby towns, including both the lake and mountain district. There is also a four-day field trip to Vienna as well as the opportunity for extended travel during semester break.

All students interested in art from any perspective—and regardless of their skill level—should consider Marchutz. Its innovative interdisciplinary approach to the arts combines readings in literature and philosophy with studio art training, thereby providing students with a coherent theoretical and practical approach to the creative process. Individual projects in relation to students’ individual goals or fields of study are required as well. Students who have flourished at Marchutz majored in Studio art, Art History, Art Education, Art Therapy, English, French, Philosophy, and even Bio-Chemistry. In the studio, figure drawing, portraiture, landscape and still-life painting are interrelated with copying, memory work, and sketchbook journals. Group and individual critiques are integral to the student’s work. In seminars, students are asked to seek connections in their work with that of other artists and critics. Music, poetry and theater are often compared to painting, sculpture, or architecture. Studio disciplines and aesthetics are taught separately, but presented as a unified corpus. Studio, writing, history and criticism combine to form one “seminar in seeing.” The faculty considers each student as a working artist regardless of his/her level of experience. Whether beginning or well advanced, the student who will thrive at the Marchutz School is serious and committed. Students must enroll in the Studio Seminar (6 credits), the Art Criticism Seminar (3 credits) and one art history class (3 credits). Museum

charm of Venice does not derive solely from the presence of significant works of architecture and art (Bellini, Tiziano, Veronese, Tintoretto, Palladio, Sansovino, and many others) but also from the general layout of the city and its way of life. The program is situated in the heart of Venice in a 16th century palazzo. The interior of the building has been recently restored for instructional purposes and is also a center for art and culture. The palazzo is located in the very center of the university area and off the beaten path of tourists.

Institute. Our civilization is the end of the product of the widely contrasting cultures that evolved over many hundreds of years. With the Renaissance it became possible to unite the strands of these cultures in a new and exciting synthesis, which prepared the way for the birth of the modern world. This semester-long study abroad experience allows students to retrace the steps of Greek, Etruscan, Roman, medieval and Renaissance cultures by living and studying in the three cities which embody these civilizations in all their richness and splendor: Tuscania, Rome and Florence for the fall and Tuscania, Rome and Venice for the spring.

Student Life

Students spend one month in each location and follow a structured program of five 3-credit courses, which together compromise a unique investigation into the roots of Western civilization. Classes meet every day Monday through Thursday for two and a half hours each, providing a total of 45 contact hours per course. There are two mandatory 3-credit courses in the first center, Tuscania: an Italian language course and an introduction to the ancient civilizations of the Greeks, Etruscans and Romans.

The program has no special prerequisites, and is designed for anyone interested in experiencing the three locations and learning about Western culture. A 2.75 GPA, official transcripts, and a study abroad approval form are necessary for admission to the program. Students must be at least 18 years old and be of at least sophomore standing.

In the second center, Rome students take one 3-credit course in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance and commence a second 3-credit Italian language course which will continue into the third city. In Florence or Venice students choose a further 3-credit course which gives them the opportunity to explore in-depth a late Renaissance figure and his links with modernity.
