Welcome to the Faculty of Psychology
at Sigmund Freud University Vienna

The approach to psychology taught at the Sigmund Freud University (SFU) is explicitly embedded within the cultural and social sciences.

In this respect, the SFU offers an alternative to current approaches of psychology as belonging to the natural sciences; an approach dominant in mainstream psychology and usually represented by most other universities.
