IES Abroad Vienna – European Society & Culture

IES Abroad

Vienna will be your classroom. Can you imagine learning about Freud’s theories of psychoanalysis and then touring his home and the office where he practiced? Or studying politics and international organizations and visiting the UN, the OSCE, or OPEC? How about exploring art history in Vienna’s world-famous galleries and museums? Welcome to study abroad! Wherever possible our courses take advantage of the city’s historical, artistic, and cultural sites and include a hands-on, practical component.

Offering both English- and German-taught courses, the IES Abroad Vienna European Society & Culture program allows you to study the culture, history, business, and politics of a region that continues to play a major role on the world stage. You can also enroll in an internship or field experience, which includes time spent working at your placement in addition to an academic seminar that helps you contextualize what you’re learning.

Open to students at all German language levels, our program brings more than 60 years of experience to a variety of unique courses taught by faculty from top European institutions. Courses are clustered into the following topics:

  • German Language
  • European Business, Economics, and Politics
  • Society and Self
  • The Arts

If you have a sufficient background in German you can also enroll in courses at the prestigious Universität Wien. There you will experience the Austrian education system, have the option to participate in student activities, and make some Austrian friends.
