A MULTIDISCIPLINARY UNIVERSITY…
with a strong focus on Health, Environment, and Agriculture
It is reminiscent of the multi-disciplinary approach taken by the first university established in Montpellier in 1289 as a secular and international university.
For eight centuries, renowned scholars and scientists, from Rabelais and Curie, to Renaudot, Chaptal and Grothendieck, have been shaping this open university. It is deeply embedded into the life of the city and committed to the key challenges of its time.
Today, the University of Montpellier brings together an extensive community of knowledge, from science, technology, medicine and environmental sciences, to educational sciences, economics, management, law and political science. It is involved in a strategic global initiative aiming at making Montpellier one of the European capitals for Health and Agro-environment.
