Paris Lodron University of Salzburg
Kapitelgasse 4-6, 5020 Salzburg, Austria
The Paris Lodron University of Salzburg (PLUS), with over - 18,000 students and - 2,800 employees in research, teaching and administration is the largest educational institution in both the city and province of Salzburg. As an integral part of the cultural and economic life of Salzburg, it is a meeting place between teachers and students, scientists and the public. The name of our university reflects its founding by Prince Archbishop Paris Lodron in 1622. Since the re-establishment of the University of Salzburg in 1962, it has developed into a modern and lively university that meets the highest requirements with its four faculties in teaching and research. HISTORY The origin of the University of Salzburg dates back to the Baroque period: the Alma mater, Paridiana, was founded in 1622 by Archbishop Paris Lodron: the year 2022 will celebrate its 400th anniversary. Support of the University was provided by a confederation of 33 Benedictine abbeys of South Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Salzburg. Until its dissolution in the wake of the annexation of Salzburg to Bavaria in 1810, theological and philosophical, as well as juridical and medical lectures were held at the University. The University of Salzburg was re-established in 1962. The resumption of the operation of the Faculty of Philosophy, as well as the inauguration of the first Rector occurred in the year 1964. Only later was the University expanded to include a Faculty of Law. Today, the University of Salzburg is divided into four faculties: Catholic Theology, Law, Cultural and Social Sciences, and Natural Sciences, as well as the Interdisciplinary departments. PROFILE With the strategic development of the University and associated substantial investment activity, as well as a marked reform of the entire education and training course offering, the Rectorate ensures the competitiveness of the University of Salzburg. Research-oriented teaching and nationally and internationally recognized research are core to the mission. With approximately 2,800 employees and 18,000 students, the University of Salzburg is one of the largest institutions in the region. It, therefore, has a model function and is involved in the implementation of social objectives such as the inclusion of women, the promotion of health, and protection of the environment. The broad spectrum of subjects at the University of Salzburg range from Theology and Law, to Natural Sciences and Cultural and Social Sciences; in addition, particular attention has been paid in recent years to the Magisterium.
