Vienna FSP

The music foreign study program provides an opportunity for students to combine the study of music with an intensive exposure to musical performance while living in Vienna. The program is open to vocalists, instrumentalists, and composers, as well as to students whose focus is on music history, theory, or ethnomusicology.

Courses offered include Music 70: “Perspectives in Music Performance” (taught by the FSP director), which focuses on historical, analytical, and practical aspects of performance, and includes attendance at some thirty public performances;  Music 74: “The History of Music in Central Europe” (taught by a team of local lecturers); and Music 87: “Special Studies in Music Abroad,” consisting of individual lessons. Student musicians will also reap the benefits of a term in Vienna. The opportunity to attend concerts and rehearsals, meet performers and artists, and experience firsthand the vibrant musical traditions of Central Europe offers unique learning opportunities outside the classroom.

Selection will be based on a student’s interest in music as demonstrated by past study and performance ability. Enrollment is limited to 16 students.

The FSP is operated in partnership with IES. IES is one of the nation’s most reputable study abroad providers and is well-known for their continued dedication to health and safety and academic rigor.
