The Wittgenstein Centre's new Master's programme 'Global Demography' will start at the University of Vienna in October 2021. 

The principal aim of the programme 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. 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. 

Students enrolled in the Global Demography master’s programme will explore the international demographic literature, learn important methodological tools, and gain an array of transferable skills reaching beyond academia.

The future students will be part of a diverse, international community and the world-class academic network of the pillar institutions of the Wittgenstein Centre for Demography and Global Human Capital -IIASA, Austrian Academy of Sciences, and University of Vienna. 

The additional advantages include living and studying in the city with the highest quality of life; the marginal tuition fees; some scholarships to cover living expenses for students from Eastern Europe, Central Asia and developing countries; and a possibility to start courses online in fall 2021 if future students should be delayed in coming to Vienna due to Covid-19. 

Application Period: 1 March - 3 May 2021
Start of the Programme: October 2021
