Roskilde University was originally established in order to challenge academic traditions and to experiment with new ways to create and acquire knowledge. At RUC we cultivate a project and problem oriented approach to knowledge creation, because we believe that the most relevant results are obtained by solving real problems in collaboration with others. We employ an interdisciplinary approach because no major problems are ever resolved on the basis of any single academic discipline alone.
Strong research and education in e.g. Economics and Business Administration, Environmental Risk, Global Studies, International Public Administration and Politics, Social Entrepreneurship and Management, Communication Studies, International Development Studies, Mathematics, Molecular Biology, Physics
The University's research is organized into six Departments that are characterised by multi-disciplinary approaches across traditional discipline boundaries. The research has a special focus on responding to societal needs for knowledge and addressing complex issues in more holistic ways than is typically the case with traditional single disciplinarity.
