The University of Bamberg has a clearly structured profile rooted in the fields of the Humanities, Social Sciences, Economics and Business Administration, as well as in the Human Sciences and Education. Applied Computer Sciences complete its broad academic spectrum. One of Germany’s best university libraries contributes to the excellent research and study conditions, as do the certified family-friendly working structures.
Today, the university, established in the UNESCO World Heritage town of Bamberg in 1647, is more internationally connected than ever. Its research plays a major role in solving practical problems in the fields of education, politics and business.
The university places a significant focus on educational research and teaching in education. Innovative master’s degree programmes and the Bamberg Graduate School of Social Sciences – part of the German Universities’ Excellence Initiative – promote empirically-founded and theoretically pioneering research on humans in competitive knowledge societies. The National Educational Panel Study examines educational pathways and environments in Germany over the span of an entire human life.
