Courses on Sustainability

WU Vienna offers a great number of courses tailored to students interested in environmental and social Sustainability and Responsibility. Every semester, students can choose anywhere from 80 to 100 relevant courses at Bachelor’s, Master’s, PhD levels, as well as mixed-level electives.

A unique hands-on program taught conjointly by four major universities in Vienna is Sustainability Challenge. Find out more about this initiative here (please note that the German version of our website offers a more detailed description).

Finally, the best way to get informed about general course offerings each semester for current students is via WU Vienna’s vvz [course directory] website. You may search specifically for courses taught by STaR WU faculty members. Alternatively, enter search keywords, such as “sustainability” or “responsibility”.
