Welcome to our Department!
The Department of Communication at the University of Vienna is one of the world’s largest departments for communication science. Set up during the 1940s, our Department now has almost 4,000 students, more than 70 employees and more than 120 teaching staff.
Vienna's geographic and cultural position makes us a hub for numerous international cooperation projects in the fields of research and teaching. We have personal contacts with many universities from neighbouring countries, but also from the USA and Asia. Consequently, our Department regularly welcomes foreign researchers and lecturers.
Professor Matthes has been appointed as Division Head after serving the division in several positions for four years.
Our department secured two new competetive research projects, funded by the The Austrian Federal Ministry of Science, Research and Economy and the Austrian Science Fund (FWF).
