About the University

Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU) offers you the ideal environment for studying right in the heart of Germany’s picturesque Rheinhessen region. In addition to research-oriented teaching, you will also enjoy the advantages of a campus-based university in a state capital with a rich cultural life.

"Ut omnes unum sint" or that all may be one? This is the motto of Mainz University. Though the Latin may sound a little old-fashioned, the aspiration it expresses is still very valid today because JGU is a place where cultural, social, and individual diversity is highly appreciated and cherished. Young people from more than 130 countries study and undertake research at JGU.

As a comprehensive university, JGU offers you a broad spectrum of subjects and courses in the Humanities, Natural Sciences, Social Sciences, Media Studies, Economics, Medicine, Arts, Music, and Sports. Thanks to this wide range of subjects, our students can flexibly combine different courses. In addition, our Germersheim campus offers Translation Studies, Linguistics, and Cultural Studies training translators and interpreters in numerous European and non-European languages.
In our international courses of study in the Humanities, Law, Management, and Economics you can obtain binational and even tri-national degrees.
JGU is maintaining a network with more than 150 cooperation partners in universities on every continent in the world. Moreover, there are about 1,000 ongoing collaborations with 350 European partner universities through the ERASMUS exchange program, all of which offer our students opportunities to go study abroad for a semester or two.

At JGU you can also obtain a doctorate in all of the courses of study offered. In addition to the option of working towards your doctorate on your own, JGU provides support in the form of various graduate schools and graduate centers. JGU is involved in top-level research programs in the Natural Sciences, Humanities, Social Sciences as well as in Medicine.
Even if you consider to leave the university after completing your degree, JGU can offer you assistance with career orientation and planning.
