Germany’s first private university was founded in 1983 and has been a pioneer in higher education ever since. We feel committed to Humboldt’s educational ideals and perceive ourselves as an entrepreneurial university with an integrative approach to research, teaching and practical application. Studies at Witten/Herdecke University are different. We offer small groups with intensive support and guidance; our focus is on the acquisition of subject expertise and methodological skills as well as socio-cultural competences. Students are encouraged to think in wider contexts and accept social responsibility beyond the scope of a chosen discipline. Fundamental studies, as a core element of identity and the interdisciplinary heart of Witten/Herdecke University, support out-of-the-box thinking. Student education at UW/H is always close to practice and has a strong commitment to value orientation and personal growth. Witten/Herdecke University offers degree programs in management and economics, health, and philosophy and culture. Close cooperation among these areas ensures that our graduates are experts with a broad horizon and in great demand. They are well prepared for positions in, for example, health economics or cultural management, and acquainted with ethical issues in medicine.
