The University of Potsdam is one of Germany’s most beautifully situated institutions of higher education and is distinguished by its broad diversity of degree programs and its distinctive interdisciplinary research profile.

Six Faculties - Three Locations

Embedded in Potsdam’s unique cultural landscape, in close proximity to the Prussian palaces and gardens, the still relatively young University of Potsdam has established itself at three locations. The campus Am Neuen Palais, which is in the immediate proximity of the Park of Sanssouci, is home to the Faculty of Arts. In rural Golm, where one of the largest science parks of the region has grown, there are the Faculty of Science and the Faculty of Human Sciences. The Faculty of Economics and Social Sciences, the Law Faculty and Faculty of Digital Engineering are in Griebnitzsee, not very far from Babelsberg with its historical film studios.

Faculty of Science

Conveying the fundamental principles of mathematics and natural sciences and their practical application in research projects already during studies is the formula for the success of the Faculty.
