We have a competitive research environment and are proud of our program diversity, which covers the foundations of psychology, provides a solid preparation for helping others, and introduces students to neurosciences and behavioral sciences.
Psychology is the study of the human mind and the behavior it generates, so learning about psychology means learning about yourself and others. Webster University's Psychology Department is proud of its counseling program, which ideally prepares students for a wide range of jobs in the helping profession. We are also proud of our state-of-the-art research infrastructure, which allows us to make links between the science and practice of psychology. If you are keen on gaining a better understanding of the human mind (including your own!) Webster's psychology programs are what you need. All in English, right in the center of Vienna. Welcome to Webster University!

Master Program (Graduate)
- Master of Arts (MA) in Psychology with an emphasis in Counseling Psychology (Covers Propädeutikum aspects and gives you a great research experience) - accredited both in the USA and Austria; outcome:
a) You become a Psychologist,
b) You gain verbal skills that are needed for every profession, because communication is crucial to all disciplines,
c) You get the Propädeutikum certificate, which is the first important step to become a Psychotherapist in Austria (at no extra cost!),
d) You are ideally prepared for any PhD Program.
- News: From now on students can start this program not only in Fall (August), but also in Spring (January)!
The fact that the Propädeutikum is included in our MA Program is particularly interesting for local students, who plan to become a Psychotherapist. The Propädeutikum costs money and with only a bit of an extra financial investment you can not only get this important certificate to become a Psychotherapist, but also earn a Master degree in Psychology, which of course can open many more doors for your professional career.
