About the University

LMU Munich observes the highest academic standards in both education and research. As a true universitas its mission is to develop practicable solutions to the human, social, cultural, environmental and technological challenges posed by tomorrow’s world. To this end, the University strives to provide its students with a comprehensive knowledge base, while fostering a critical cast of mind, and inculcating an informed sense of values and an acute awareness of history.

A highly diversified curriculum
LMU Munich offers its students a stimulating academic education with direct relevance to everyday practice. Its curriculum encompasses the whole spectrum of academic disciplines, extending from Assyriology to Zoology, and the range of subject combinations available is correspondingly varied.
LMU endeavors to provide an inspiring learning environment for its students and the best possible infrastructure for young researchers, and collaborates closely with other universities, research institutions and foundations in the Munich area.

Nurturing junior researchers
Research activities at LMU Munich cover the entire spectrum of academic disciplines from the Humanities and Cultural Sciences through Law, Economics and the Social Sciences to Medicine and the Natural Sciences.
The future of every university rests on the creativity and insights of its young researchers. This is why LMU strives to create the best possible research and training opportunities for graduates and doctoral students. In addition to many international Master’s programs and traditional doctoral thesis projects supervised by a single mentor, the University now offers a growing number of doctoral programs in more broadly defined fields – from Buddhist studies to the educational sciences and the biosciences.
Furthermore, LMU has set up dedicated mechanisms that provide clear and consistent career perspectives for early-career researchers. These mechanisms include targeted support measures for the postdoc stage and the extension of the tenure-track model, which LMU has successfully pursued for many years.
