Geburt der Moderne - Wien um die Jahrhundertwende - Universitätskurs


The univie: winter school for Cultural Historical Studies takes place in Vienna, the capital of the former Habsburg Monarchy (and Austria of today) where traces of the outstanding culture of the late 19th and the beginning of the 20th century are still visible. The two-week program combines first-class academic courses with an extensive social and cultural program. Vienna’s rich cultural heritage, especially the museums, will lead to a thorough understanding of the impact of the fin-de-siècle on the modernization of Europe. This unique program consists of high level lectures in the morning and guided excursions to the city of Vienna (e.g. Ringstraße) and to different museums (the Museum for
Applied Arts, the Schönberg Center, and the Leopold Museum) in the afternoon.
Outside the framework of classes Vienna offers plenty of opportunities to explore additional museums and sights such as the St. Stephan’s Cathedral, the Imperial Palace, and the Treasury.
The academic course environment encourages intercultural and social exchange and favours mutual understanding within the international student population. Participants thus broaden their horizon, meet colleagues from different fields of study, make friends for life and build connections for their future professional careers.


The univie: winter school offers six courses comprising 4 ECTS credits per course (corresponding to 32 contact hours). Each contact hour consists of 45 minutes of classroom teaching.
In the course of the two-week program students can attend two courses and obtain up to 8 ECTS credits. The winter program courses offer a well-structured introduction to one of the most fascinating periods of Austria‘s intellectual history in a short time. The culture of the fin-de-siècle is one of the highlights in the history of the Habsburg Monarchy. The preparatory seminar Introduction to fin-de-siècle Vienna on the first weekend will provide students with the basic knowledge needed for their selected courses. The seminar is a prerequisite to attend the following courses. Students can select one course from the courses offered in the early morning and a second from the courses offered in
the late morning. The courses will provide them with a deep insight into the society and culture of this fascinating period.
