Professor Jörg Fedtke
The Faculty of Law stands for excellent research in the entire breadth of the subject, excellent preparation for the First State Examination in Law and individual promotion of our early career researchers. Innovation, for example in legal education; interdisciplinarity, for example in research on artificial intelligence; and internationality, for example in developing and maintaining university partnerships around the world, characterise our daily work. We invite you to join us on this exciting journey.
Professor Stefan Bauernschuster
Excellent research on academically challenging and socially relevant topics is central to our work. In addition to publishing our research in prestigious scientific journals, we communicate our findings to non-specialist audiences, actively participate in socio-political debates and work together with businesses. We incorporate our research findings into our lectures and seminars to ensure that our teaching reflects the latest developments in the field and that our students receive a modern education at the state of the art.
Professor Maximilian Sailer
Our new faculty, which is currently in the process of formation, is home to a wide range of social and educational-science disciplines that offer excellent research contributions and innovative teaching. Our students in the undergraduate and postgraduate degree programmes experience didactically and methodically varied, contemporary teaching with a strong research orientation. Our aim is to give our students the best preparation for the complex and particular work situations they will encounter in their various fields of activity.
Prof. Dr. Jan-Oliver Decker
The Faculty of Humanities and Cultural Studies combines excellent research in the humanities, linguistics, literature, media, art and cultural studies in all their historical depth and breadth with innovative digital methods, and applies them to current global problem contexts. A special focus is placed on research in national cultural areas within and outside of Europe, as well as cultural spaces in the digital realm. Our students gain an education that imparts our innovative research and equips them with the methodological, theoretical and practical critical thinking skills that empower them to critically accompany and actively shape the global cultural-historical transformation.
Professor Ignanz Rutter
The Faculty of Computer Science and Mathematics is the University's youngest faculty. With the Bavarian High-Tech Agenda, we are currently in a phase of strong growth and are sustainably expanding our work on artificial intelligence. Our outstanding research and teaching in mathematics and computer science make a real contribution to meeting the challenges of an increasingly digital world. Our diverse research activities range from basic research to technology transfer with industrial partners. Through our bachelor's and master's degree programmes, we enable our graduates to shape the digital future with innovativeness and responsibility.
The faculties coordinate research and teaching activities and the curricula within their academic disciplines. Each faculty is headed by the dean and his or her faculty administration staff – the Dean's Office. The Dean's Office provides a variety of services and is responsible for coordinating lectures and venues, doctoral examinations, postdoctoral habilitation procedures, professorial appointments, degree programme accreditation and the courses offered at the faculty.
Each faculty has a dean of studies, whose job it is to monitor the quality of the study conditions. Working hand-in-hand with the central Academic Advice Service, each faculty has one or more programme advisers, who advise current and prospective students on the various courses offered and the subjects represented at their faculty.
The faculties are composed of individual Chairs, which in turn may be clustered by subject area. In addition, the faculties have institutes which provide project-specific knowledge and undertake special research projects, which benefits the students enrolled at the University and businesses in the region.
