Our university is a pulsating place of scientific reflection. In the courses of study in theology, philosophy and art studies we promote and demand critical questioning and independent thinking. The lecturers and students of KU Linz are therefore in constant dialogue with the philosophical, theological, social and art-scientific perspectives and challenges of our time.
The private university has an optimal scientific and administrative infrastructure. The institution was accredited in 2000 as the first private university in Austria. All study courses offered in the fields of theology, religious education, philosophy and art studies are state-accredited and recognised throughout Europe. The library of the KU Linz, the third largest in Upper Austria, has 255,000 volumes, 3700 professional journals, of which 500 are current and 770 are electronically accessible. It is open to the public.
