Open to Northeastern University students of any major and select partner institutions, the Dialogue of Civilizations is a series of "global student exchanges" between students at Northeastern University and students around the world. The goal of each program is (a) to connect NU students with their peers in different national, cultural, political, and social environments and (b) to provide NU students with a "global experience" that builds upon and enhances their academic studies and training in Boston.
The Dialogue of Civilisations here at Salzburg College concentrates on European Music of the Classic period. Students study the evolution of local composers like Mozart, Haydn, etc, as well as classical genres popular from 1750-1830. Part of the learning experience is the attendance of concerts in venues where premier performances of the studied works were given.
