In the course of its reorganization in 2006, Leuphana introduced a university model unique to the German academic landscape. By spring 2009, the following new academic schools had been established:
College: Award-winning bachelor's programme provides a variety of perspectives
The college is where students can obtain their first academic degree. Since 2007, the Leuphana Bachelor’s programme has been offering a homogeneously structured and interdisciplinary oriented programme of study. It is targeted toward students who are interested in more than specialised knowledge and who enjoy working independently and responsibly.
Graduate School: Combining interdisciplinary master’s degrees with doctoral studies
Since 2008, the Graduate School offers master’s programmes with a specialisation in the following three thematic fields: Governance & Law, Humanities & Social Sciences, Management & Entrepreneurship, and Education. The study model of the Graduate School offers graduate students the opportunity to intertwine their master’s studies with doctoral studies. Furthermore, we offer doctoral candidates from all over the world the opportunity to work and research in a vibrant, interdisciplinary environment.
Professional School: Continuing education and business outreach for professionals and corporations
The school offers programmes for continuing education and optimal conditions for lifelong learning (since 2009). The Professional School is geared toward working with adults who are interested in furthering their educational goals – ranging from those who have just joined the job market to senior managers.
