The Potsdam Science Park is also a dynamically expanding university campus. More than 9,000 young people study here at the University of Potsdam’s Department of Mathematics and Natural Sciences and at the Department of Humanities. A wide variety of scientific disciplines such as biological sciences, chemistry, geosciences, physics and mathematics, as well as pedagogy, psychology and music are all united here in one location. The broad spectrum of scientific disciplines is enriched by close cooperation with the non-university institutions established in the Potsdam Science Park. One of the reasons the Park is so successful is that professors are able to both teach and apply their knowledge in practice.
