Academic Program

Founded in 1622, the University of Salzburg achieved great prestige and was one of the most famous universities of 17th and 18th century Europe. It is now a modern and vibrant institution. An interdisciplinary Department of International Relations and Political Science draws students from around the world to meet with faculty and each other to help solve the problems of the 21st century. Although students are encouraged to take German, faculty from this will teach classes in English exclusively for American students.

Credit for Semester Study Abroad

For High Point University to recognize the credits you complete abroad, you must earn a grade equivalent to a C in the U.S. HPU will not accept credit for courses with grades of C– or below. Grades for all courses earned abroad are recorded on the foreign transcript. Credits are received by HPU as transfer credits, which means the credit is received but the grade is not. Your HPU grade point average will not be impacted positively or negatively by your study abroad courses.

Note: In order to satisfy General Education (Core) requirements, a course must earn a minimum of 3 credits. While HPU is able to accept a relevant course worth one or two credits, one and two credit courses earned at the University of Salzburg will not satisfy your General Education requirements.
