About Webster Vienna Private University
Founded in the U.S. in 1915, Webster University is an American University with a global perspective. The Vienna Campus, Webster Vienna Private University, opened in 1981 and is accredited both in the USA and in Austria.
The University focuses on excellence in teaching, the joining of theory and practice, small class sizes, and educating students to be lifelong independent learners prepared to participate in an increasingly international society.
Webster's graduate programs are for students who have earned a primary degree at a recognized institution and would like to pursue an internationally recognized graduate degree to further their knowledge and prepare for career advancement.
The graduate degree is the second university diploma and requires an undergraduate university degree (BA, BS) or the equivalent thereof to be completed before commencing the graduate program.
To accommodate students with full-time work, all graduate courses take place once a week in the evening with exams held on weekends. Students requiring additional flexibility, but still wishing to receive a degree with Austrian and American accreditation have the option of pursuing up to two courses online through our online World Classroom.
Webster Vienna Private University's undergraduate programs offer students the best of both worlds: an American liberal arts education that prioritizes faculty mentorship, excellence in teaching and small class size, and a European research university where innovative scholarship sets the standard for academic and intellectual achievement.
Accredited in both Austria and the United States, a Webster education is also a global education. With access to our worldwide network of international campuses, students are prepared to seize the academic, intellectual and professional opportunities offered by an increasingly globalized world.
Throughout their undergraduate education, students explore their own major field of study, as well as related disciplines in which they confront today's most pressing social, political and economic issues. To this end, Webster's Global Citizenship Program ensures that continuing exposure to the latest innovations in the human sciences and liberal arts is an essential aspect of students' undergraduate education.
