In the course of its reorganization in 2007, Leuphana introduced a university model unique to the German academic landscape. By spring 2009 the following new academic schools had been established: College: Award-winning bachelor´s program providing a variety of perspectives A college at which students can obtain their first academic degree: since 2007 the Leuphana Bachelor’s program has been offering a homogeneously structured and interdisciplinary oriented program of study. It is targeted toward students who are interested in more than specialized knowledge and who enjoy working in an independent and responsible manner. Graduate School: Combining interdisciplinary master’s degrees with doctoral studies The Graduate School offers master’s programs with specialization in the following three thematic fields: Governance & Law, Humanities & Socila Sciences, Management & Entrepreneurship, and Education. The study model of the Graduate School offers graduate students the opportunity to intertwine their master’s studies with doctoral studies. Furthermore we offer doctoral candidates from all over the world the opportunity to work and research in a vibrant, interdisciplinary environment. Professional School: Continuing education and business outreach for professionals and corporations The school offers programs for continuing education and optimal conditions for lifelong learning (since 2009). The Professional School is geared toward working with adults who are interested in furthering their educational goals – ranging from those who have just joined the job market to senior managers.

Science initiatives focus on Education, Humanities & Social Sciences, Business & Economics, Sustainability Our research activities are focused on four science initiatives – each with a transdisciplinary approach. To pursue its research goals, the University appointed about 50 new professors (until 2012). These new positions were added to the professorships already existing in the following areas: education, management and entrepreneurship, cultural research, and sustainability. Responsibility lies with the Faculties.

Programs taught in:
  • English (US)

Chemistry - Sustainability - Sustainable Development

Launching in April 2020, the pro­fes­sio­nal Mas­ters pro­gram M.Sc. Sustainable Chemistry pro­vi­des ex­pert in­ter­di­sci­pli­na­ry trai­ning in sustainable che­mis­try. Our uni­que cur­ri­cu­lum teaches – from the mole­cu­lar le­vel to glo­bal pro­duct flows, sustaina­bi­li­ty as­sess­ment and al­ter­na­ti­ve busi­ness mo­dels for che­mi­cal pro­ducts – how to un­der­stand and ap­p­ly chemistry in the context of sustainability.

Chemistry is the key en­ab­ling sci­ence for the pro­ducts we use in our ever­y­day life. Every sec­tor of our so­cie­ty, from agri­cul­tu­re, health­ca­re, mo­bi­li­ty, en­er­gy to the di­gi­tal sec­tor has been and is being shaped by che­mi­cal in­no­va­tions. Whi­le sub­stan­ti­al­ly cont­ri­bu­ting to our health and well­being, che­mis­try plays an im­portant role in fa­c­ing to­day’s chal­len­ges of re­sour­ce de­p­le­ti­on, cli­ma­te chan­ge, and pol­lu­ti­on as well as for se­cu­ring a sustainable development of our so­cie­ties....
