Irvine - Salzburg Program

LPS and the Department of Philosophy jointly administer an Exchange Program with the University of Salzburg.  It provides opportunities for faculty and graduate students in LPS and Philosophy to visit Salzburg, and for faculty and graduate students from Salzburg to visit one or the other of the Irvine units.

To be eligible for the Salzburg Exchange, a graduate student must have advanced to candidacy. If selected, the student spends one semester in Salzburg, usually teaching one course in the general area of his or her thesis topic. An upper division course may be taught in English, but lower division courses must be taught in German. (Some previous visitors have learned serviceable German by attending a Goethe institute during the preceding summer.) Typically, a Salzburg visitor will receive a Salzburg Fellowship intended to cover travel expenses, and a stipend; those who teach while in Salzburg will also receive a salary intended to cover living expenses (including health and dental insurance).

Applications from LPS graduate students (including a curriculum vita and syllabi for courses that might be taught) should be sent to the LPS Salzburg Exchange Director, Brian Skyrms (, by November 1.
