Teaching and research activities at the University of Bremen encompass a broad spectrum of subjects. In the natural and engineering sciences as well as in the social sciences, the humanities and teacher education, our University has a long tradition of cooperation among the disciplines – both in its study programmes as well as in collaborative research.
The University of Bremen began early on to bundle interdisciplinary collaborative research within what we call ‘high-profile areas’. These play a major role in shaping our University‘s international research profile. The reputation boost deriving from these especially strong areas and their impressive record of success in competitive calls carries over to all areas of the University. High-profile areas are based on a broad spectrum of related subjects. We purposely preserve this breadth of scope in order to ensure the continual emergence of new linkages, novel lines of research, and innovative programme content. The University will continue its policy of building thematic profiles, promoting the emergence, growth and innovation of high-profile areas.
