Patti McGill Peterson Center for International and Intercultural Studies
Austria is a small country at the crossroads between Eastern and Western Europe in the heart of the European Union. Its rich cultural heritage and historical importance make it an ideal place for study.
Vienna, the capital of Austria, is the base of this program. The city is renowned for its incredible cultural offerings, and the program's courses in music, art, history, and psychology make use of Vienna's unique environment.
International organizations, such as the United Nations and OPEC, make the city an ideal spot for studying the economic and political aspects of modern Europe. Field study trips, within Austria and to many other parts of Europe,complement the course offerings.
The Austro-American Institute of Education (AAIE), location of our Austria program, is in the heart of Vienna, within walking distance of the major museums, architectural treasures, concert halls, and theatres. There are endless possibilities for entertainment and recreation nearby.
