Master & Ph.D program

Master Programme Global Demography | University of Vienna

The Master Programme on “Global Demography” of the University of Vienna will welcome its third cohort on October 1, 2023. The application period runs from March 1 to April 17, 2023. The Programme is offered by the Department of Demography, one of the three pillars of the Wittgenstein Centre for Demography and Global Human Capital (IIASA, OeAW, University of Vienna).

The principal aim of the two-year English language Master’s Programme in Global Demography is to give students a strong scientific grounding in the analysis and forecasting of demographic developments across the globe – in particular, fertility, mortality and migration trends as well as human capital formation. Guided by leading experts in the field, students will be given the opportunity to explore the multidimensional ramifications and implications of demographic change on economic, social, and environmental issues.

Besides this extensive Master’s Programme the following advantages await future students:
*Being part of a diverse, international community and the world-class academic network of the Wittgenstein Centre for Demography and Global Human Capital (IIASA, OeAW, University of Vienna)
*Living and studying in the city with the highest quality of life

*Marginal tuition fees – at most 750 EUR/semester even for non-EU/EEA citizens; Waivers exist especially for students from developing countries

Two info sessions will take place in March. More information can be found attached (Flyer).
