Central and manageable

The department's Maxstraße location is right in the heart of Ludwigshafen. Thanks to its central location, good connections to local and long-distance public transport are ensured. With around 800 students, this branch of the Ludwigshafen University of Applied Sciences is also manageable and is characterized by short distances and constructive cooperation.

A location with tradition

The location has tradition: Teaching has been taking place here for almost 50 years. The department emerged from the former Protestant University of Applied Sciences and today offers non-denominational teaching and research.

Living faculty

"The culture at Department IV is characterized by a high level of commitment on the part of the teaching staff, the employees at the department and in the degree programs," says Prof. Dr. Ellen Bareis, describing the special atmosphere in the department. Here, the focus is on joyful discussion, willingness to engage in dialog, the ability to reflect, and respectful interaction between students, faculty, and administration.
