Program Overview

Program Description:

Vienna is teeming with people from around the world who have made this city their home.

Situated at the center of Europe and rich in culture, this is a place where people from all walks of life thrive. Perhaps not surprisingly, it is also a city where the study of society has a long history and where modern psychology claims its birthplace. Many prominent thinkers made Vienna their home—Alfred Adler, Max Wertheimer, Helene Deutsch, Erwin Ringel, Viktor Frankl (who taught at IES Abroad), and, of course, Sigmund Freud.

Experience life in Vienna as a student of Psychology and Social Sciences. IES Abroad courses give you the opportunity to explore youth cultures, childhood development, virtual identity on the web, the immigrant experience, and the social and psychological dimensions of discrimination. Deepen your learning experience with a program-related trip to destinations throughout Austria, Hungary, and Germany to explore these issues in a broader cultural and geographical context.  

Setting Description:
We’d like to let you in on a little secret: Vienna is extraordinary, so pack your bags and study abroad in Vienna before more students realize what a hidden gem it is. Hear the sounds of this truly musical city as musicians perform on pedestrian shopping streets, explore the many museums and historical sites, check out all of the booths at Naschmarkt, and visit the stunning St. Stephen’s Cathedral when you study abroad in Vienna. Come see for yourself why the music, culture, and history of this world-class city elicit nothing but adoration from those who go there. Make the best of your own Vienna study abroad experience on one of IES Abroad's programs that range from music history to psychology in this European center of scholarship.
