We have a competitive research faculty and are proud of our Research Student Grant Award, which is part of a Webster-wide competition.
Psychology is the study of the human mind and the behavior it generates, so learning about psychology means learning about yourself. Webster’s psychology program offers you a solid introduction into the field and then allows you to dive into the subjects of your interest. Those subjects are specific to Webster and unique in Vienna, and we are particularly proud of our counseling program, which prepares students ideally for a wide range of job markets in the helping profession, and the neuroscience approach that informs the practice of psychology and opens the doors to a research career. If you are keen on gaining a better understanding of the human mind (including your own!) Webster University’s psychology program might be right for you. We have highly recognized professors, an oasis-like academic home including top-of-the-line facilities, and the best possible attitude towards teaching and science. All in English, right in the center of downtown Vienna. Welcome to Webster University!
