About us

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 approximately 3,700 students, more than 90 employees and more than 140 teaching staff. Our Department is currently ranked as one of the top programs for communication research in Europe, and our research is supported by numerous funding agencies, such as the European Union or the Austrian Science Fund.

Vienna's geographic and cultural position as well as our international research orientation make us a key hub for numerous top-notch research collaborations around the globe. We have research contacts with many universities from neighboring countries, but also from the USA and Asia. Consequently, our Department regularly welcomes foreign researchers as Visiting Fellows or Guest Professors.
