About Us

Within the Institute for Statistics and Quantitative Methods at the SFU Vienna, it is our main goal to impart statistical analysis methods and their implementation in an application-oriented and practical manner, in order to open up a space for critical questioning and practice-oriented discussion for students in addition to the acquisition of central knowledge.

Our role in the university’s curriculum is therefore focused on conveying methodical knowledge, which can not only be applied to the context of an academic career, but also be of relevance as a necessary tool within the psychological practice.

Our offered courses in the Bachelor and Master program at the Sigmund Freud University in Vienna include lectures as well as seminars for statistics and quantitative research methods, while guaranteeing a profound methodological education as part of your psychology-studies.

Further areas of activities:

  • Academic teaching
  • Statistical consultation for scientific quantitative theses
  • Consultation concerning SPSS, AMOS and SoSci Survey/Unipark Questback
  • Research activity (including cooperation with other faculties and institutes)

Potential concerns where we could be of help:

  • Questions regarding planning (e.g. study-designs, sample calculation etc.) and evaluating quantitative research projects
  • Methodological consultation/advice for bachelor/diploma/master or doctoral theses
  • Support with digital data collection (e.g. using SoSci Survey/Unipark Questback)
  • Employee training (e.g. workshops, seminars, articles)
  • Questions regarding curriculum and teachings of statistics and quantitative methods
  • Requests for potential cooperation opportunities within quantitative studies
