Already a comprehensive university at its founding in 1457, the University of Freiburg still offers undergraduate and graduate studies in all important disciplines today: the humanities, natural and engineering sciences, medicine, law, and theology. This diversity also provides an ideal environment for innovative interdisciplinary studies.
Many famous philosophers, top researchers, and Nobel laureates have taught and researched at the University of Freiburg. More than 24,000 students are matriculated in 180 degree programs at 11 faculties. More than 7,000 professors and lecturers and many other employees put in their effort every day – and experience that family friendliness, equal opportunity, and environmental protection are more than just empty phrases here.
