The academic heart of our University are the five Faculties of Stadt|Bau|Kultur, Civil Engineering, Design, Information Sciences, and Social and Educational Sciences. Together, they run 32 courses of study with Bachelor’s or Master’s programmes. Throughout, we place great emphasis on a good student-to-staff ratio, interdisciplinarity and 'Research-driven Learning'. At the University of Applied Sciences Potsdam, research is of central importance, as are partnerships on the international and regional level.
