Austria Study Abroad - Summer School for Social Work and Criminal Justice
The School of Applied Health and Social Sciences organises a study abroad programme for students and lecturers from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Helen Bader School of Social Welfare. Participants of this two weeks programme attend lectures, workshops and site visits which focus on social policy in Austria, integration and asylum, police work and prisons, youth and family, family counselling, substance abuse and domestic violence.
Our guests also enjoy visiting Linz landmarks such as Pöstlingberg and the castle, and take a short cruise on the Danube. After a visit to the refugee center in St. Georgen, they experience the beauty of Salzkammergut and spend a day in the beautiful city of Salzburg

Each year the Bachelor's Degree Programmes Social Work, Public Management and Social Services Management organise an event which is designed for students who are planning their internship and are considering to spend it abroad. Students who have successfully completed their placements present their host organisations and talk about their experiences.
