While maintaining close relationships with both the city of Würzburg and the surrounding region of Franconia, the university has produced achievements with global significance in both research and teaching- the discovery of X-rays is only one example for that. This forms the foundation of our identity, which we likewise see as our duty in order to continue promoting excellencec in teaching and research in all areas of science. With success: In the Shanghai-ranking the JMU is ranked among the best 200 universities in the world and among the best 13 in Germany.

Established in 1402, the University currently offers over 270 degree programmes in the humanities and social sciences, natural and life sciences, medicine and in specific areas of engineering, through which we prepare more than 28,000 students for a host of different careers. One of the university’s important guiding principles is to align its teaching with developments in current research. One of our aims therefore, is to strengthen interdisciplinary collaboration in order to work on compelling questions that arise in different scientific contexts.

Teaching and research at the international level are both regarded as part of our responsibility towards fostering ethical values and the needs of society.
