Teaching Program of Science & Arts
The Inter-University Organization Science & Arts (S&A), a cooperation between the Paris Lodron University of Salzburg (PLUS) and the Mozarteum University Salzburg (MOZ), offers students at both universities the opportunity to acquire additional key competencies at the interface of the sciences and the arts.
The three working focus areas at S&A, Figurations of Transition, (Inter)Mediation. Music – Meditation – Context, and Contemporary Art and Cultural Production have put together a range of courses.
The teaching is transdisciplinary by design and offer a framework for collaborative studies and the opportunity of exchange between students of both PLUS and MOZ.
Singular classes can be attended and graded as elective courses for PLUS as well as MOZ.
In addition, S&A hosts an Inter-University Doctoral Program. It is aimed at interested individuals, who already have an academic education as well as skills in the areas of artistic or cultural production.
Contact and Issuance of Certificates:
After the successful completion of the respective
courses, the certificates listed above can be applied for. The examination certificates from the courses must be submitted in a predetermined digital form to the administration of the “Science and Art” cooperation area, who verifies the ECTS performance and the correct classification of the courses completed. The certificates are then issued on behalf of the Vice-Rector for Teaching at the Central Service Point for Flexible Learning and New Media (ZFL).
Further details about the courses offered as part of the study supplements in each semester can be found on the homepage of the Inter-University Organization Science and Arts (https://w-k.sbg.ac.at) or obtained from the administration office of the Inter-University-Organisation Sciences and the Arts (Sophie Freinhofer-Plappert).

The study supplement is aimed at students of both PLUS and MOZ, who are interested in the arts and culture.
The goal is to inspire interest for the initiation and development of stand-alone projects in the arts and culture sector, and – equipped with the necessary skills – how to implement them. The acquired competences entitle one to convey the arts in artistic, cultural, and educational setting.
Study Program in detail
Basic Module: “The Arts: Theories and Discourses I resp. II” (LINK) (12 ECTS)
Study supplement: “The Arts: Practice and Mediation” (LINK) (24 ECTS): Basic module “The Arts: Theories and Discourses I“ + Advanced module “The Arts: Practice and Mediation”
Study supplement: “Culture Management and Cultural Production” (LINK) (24 ECTS): Basic module “The Arts: Theories and Discourses II“ + Advanced module “Culture Management and Cultural Production”
Study focus: “Art, Culture and their Mediation” (LINK) (36 ECTS): Basic module “The Arts: Theories and Discourses I resp. II“ + choice of either of the two study supplements + 6 ECTS from any course not yet taken out of the two study supplements. Additional 6 ECTS can be chosen freely from the whole program.
Any study supplement consists of a basic module worth 12 ECTS and an advanced module worth 12 ECTS as well.
The successful completion of courses included in the basic module and amounting to 12 ETCS already entitle one to a certificate for the basic module.
Once further classes worth 12 ECTS (in total 24 ECTS) have been completed, another certificate is offered. After additional 12 ECTS (in total 36 ECTS), the issued certificate will equate to a study focus.
Of course, courses of any module can be taken without completion of the basic module.
When attending individual courses, the course certificates may be counted as part of the free electives.
The following certificates can be completed:
· Basic module “The Arts: Theories and Discourses I”, resp. Basic module “The Arts: Theories and Discourses II” (12 ECTS)
· Study supplement “The Arts: Practice and Mediation” (Basic Module and Advanced Module 1, 24 ECTS)
· Study supplement “Culture Management and Cultural Production” (Basic Module and Advanced Module 2, 24 ECTS)
· Study focus “Art, Culture and their Mediation” (Basic Module & Advanced Module + 6 ECTS from any course not yet taken and offered by the advanced modules + additional 6 ECTS that are free to choose)
To obtain a certificate of any of the modules or a study focus, the grade reports of all necessary classes must be submitted to the administration office of the Inter-University-Organisation Sciences and the Arts, addressed to Sophie Freinhofer-Plappert. She will check the correct classification of the modules, then forward them to the Central Service Point for Flexible Learning and New Media (ZFL).
In addition, the filled out form of the appropriate spreadsheet must be sent electronically to Sophie Freinhofer-Plappert.
Since these forms will constitute the flip side of the certificate, no pdf documents or handwritten lists will be accepted.
The mentioned spreadsheets can be found here: LINK Download
Please note: If a study supplement or study focus shall be credited towards the free electives of a master or diploma study, the head of the responsible Curricular Committee has to permit it before completion. Some studies require additional voluntary efforts if a class should be credited towards the free electives, which cannot be accounted for in the final certificate. Courses that are part of the obligatory classes or compulsory elective classes of any study cannot be credited towards the free electives of a study supplement or study focus.
The certificates issued by the Central Service Point for Flexible Learning and New Media (ZFL) will be sent out electronically via email.
