This programme provides a fascinating introduction to the theory and practice of government communications, and will help you develop practical skills for the production and delivery of written and spoken government texts.

The programme is not just classroom based, but includes a variety of study excursions, including a walking tour of Austrian Federal Ministries in Vienna, a tour of the United Nations Vienna Headquarters, a meeting with officials at the Austrian Parliament, and visits to international organisations such as OPEC and the European Fundamental Rights Agency.
From government genre analysis and vocabulary development to the preparation of ministerial speeches, official correspondence, written briefings and press releases, you can expect to cover a wide range of skills and topics during this programme. This will help you in your professional career in government, the NGO sector or in international public administration.
