Teaching at Leuphana

Leuphana University of Lüneburg applies the values of a humanist, sustainable and action-focused university and for many years has been implementing a study and university model which is entirely new in Germany and has already received many awards. Leuphana encourages students to not only obtain detailed technical and methodical skills, but to also gain perspectives across subject boundaries along the lines of a broader concept of education. Students learn to systematically reflect on theories based on practical experience and social challenges, hone their powers of judgement through encountering different perspectives in discussions with diverse people from different backgrounds, and at the end of their studies examine the significance of knowledge and findings against the background of different contexts. Studies and teaching at Leuphana apply this concept of education with the aim to promote the freedom needed for continuous personal education as lifelong learning and to accept responsibility for oneself and others.
