The English-taught Master's Program Communication Science launched in October 2015.

The Department of Communication at the University of Vienna is one of the largest communication science institutes worldwide. Vienna's geographic and cultural position makes us a hub for numerous international projects in the fields of research and teaching. The department is home to many internationally renowned scholars and research groups, and we also host leading scholars from around the globe throughout the year.

The University of Vienna and the Master’s program in Communication Science stand with the Ukrainian people in their struggle for freedom and democracy. We pay respect to all those people in the Russian Federation who oppose the criminal policies of their government. We stand in solidarity with students and applicants who are affected by the invasion of Ukraine and want to support them, regardless of their citizenship, as far as possible.

Some aid projects have already started, others have been initiated. If you are a current student at the University of Vienna, please find the up-to-date information on the page for current students.
