Sociology at the University of Vienna

Language of instruction

  • The language of instruction at the Department of Sociology is almost exclusively German. Therefore, we highly recommend German skills at B2 level of the Common European framework.
  • Each semester, a few courses are held in English language, however the offer is usually not big enough to fulfill the number of ECTS required by your home university.
  • A list of our courses in English and information about attending courses offered at other departments can be found in the sub-point "Choosing your courses".
