The University of Bamberg profits from its location in a
world cultural heritage site and acts as the region’s academic hub. It fulfills
an academic mandate which extends far beyond its local roots. Short distances,
both literally and figuratively, facilitate good advisory services, personal
communication and interdisciplinary research, teaching and learning.
The University has made it a goal to offer all its members
equal opportunities. Success can be seen in the university’s family-friendly
certification and in the high number of appointments for female professors. The
University bears a societal responsibility and is committed to the concept of
Bamberg’s historic old city offers exceptional living and
working conditions, and the university itself contributes to the diversity of
cultural and social life in the city.
The University of Bamberg is a middle-sized University with
an academic focus on the humanities, social and economic sciences, as well as
human sciences rounded out by application-oriented computer sciences. Interdisciplinary
research activity and the ability to combine degree programmes contribute to
the university’s distinguished status in Germany’s academic community.
At the University of Bamberg, research and teaching are
treated as one entity; service facilities and administration foster innovation
and productivity. Success can be seen not only in exceptional individual
research projects, but also in larger-scale cooperative research.
The university is committed to quality teaching, and the
high rankings that the university has received are an incentive to continue to
strive toward that goal.
