Leuphana University of Luneburg

Introduction

In the course of its reorganization in 2007, 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 program providing a variety of perspectives A college at which students can obtain their first academic degree: since 2007 the Leuphana Bachelor’s program has been offering a homogeneously structured and interdisciplinary oriented program of study. It is targeted toward students who are interested in more than specialized knowledge and who enjoy working in an independent and responsible manner. Graduate School: Combining interdisciplinary master’s degrees with doctoral studies The Graduate School offers master’s programs with specialization in the following three thematic fields: Governance & Law, Humanities & Socila 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 programs 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.

Science initiatives focus on Education, Humanities & Social Sciences, Business & Economics, Sustainability Our research activities are focused on four science initiatives – each with a transdisciplinary approach. To pursue its research goals, the University appointed about 50 new professors (until 2012). These new positions were added to the professorships already existing in the following areas: education, management and entrepreneurship, cultural research, and sustainability. Responsibility lies with the Faculties.

Master Sustainability Science

Campus Full time 4 semesters October 2019 Germany Lüneburg

Sustainable development is one of the major social challenges facing the twenty-first century. Yet, it still remains unclear in which direction and by means of which strategy sustainable development can move forward. [+]

Sustainable development is one of the major social challenges facing the twenty-first century - this much is beyond dispute. Yet, it still remains unclear in which direction, within which social and ecological framework, and by means of which strategy sustainable development can move forward. These questions form the starting point of our inter- and transdisciplinary research-oriented, and problem-focused Master's programme Sustainability Science.

CONTENT AND IDEA

A distinctive feature of the Sustainability Sciences programme is its balance between sustainable natural sciences and sustainable humanities. Our goal is to look at social-ecological systems in an academically grounded and interdisciplinary manner. We will examine the processes which form the material and energetic basis for environmental sustainability problems as well as potential practical solutions from the perspective of sustainable natural sciences. In complex social-ecological systems, s these material processes are closely interconnected with economic, juridical, political, and cultural contexts as well as with strategies and practices of important social actors. These immaterial prerequisites and conditions of environmental sustainability problems and the way these problems are addressed are the subject of sustainable humanities.... [-]

The in-depth understanding of engineering is seen in varying degrees as a key success factor for the management of industrial enterprises. The programme, therefore, combines the learning of management skills with training in the application of academic methods in the field of engineering sciences.

STRUCTURE

The first semester includes three modules on the fundamental principles, methods and processes of engineering and simulation. In addition, students will select one from two focuses on Automation Technology (AT) or Production Technology (PT) and complete the Module on Photonic Systems or Production Management. In the second semester, students complete, depending on the focus, Modules on actuators and control technology as well as sensors and intelligent systems (AT) or production engineering and production logistics (PT).

Master Public Economics, Law & Politics

Campus Full time Part time 4 - 8 semesters October 2019 Germany Lüneburg + 1 more

The effectiveness and legitimacy of modern states are largely determined by the complex interaction of politics, law, and business and economics. Lately, in particular, these interactions have been affected by dynamic transformation processes resulting from globalization and internationalization trends. This has led to the formation of modified statehood forms and new patterns of relationships between state, society and the economy. The Master's degree in Political Science-Public Economics, Law and Politics applies a theoretical and methodological, as well as problem-oriented and integrated, political analysis of these dynamic interactions.

CONTENT AND RATIONALE

Studies in political science at Leuphana Graduate School combine disciplines, which traditionally deal with the relationship of state, society, and business and economics. Questions, issues and approaches to solutions resulting from these intricately interwoven relationships are analyzed and treated from the joined perspectives of political science, economics and law. The focus is placed on the causes, background, as well as social and economic effects and consequences, of government action. Thus, the course aims at achieving a comprehensive reflection on the relationship between politics, law and economics by applying the tools provided by political science as a discipline, reinforced by interdisciplinary observations. This course of study is part of the scholarship programme Public Policy and Good Governance of the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). Every year, DAAD selects around ten scholarship holders from Central and South American, African and Asian countries to come and study at Leuphana Graduate School. They enhance the experience of studying on this programme by lending... [-]
