About University of Munster:

The University of Münster (WWU) is a public university located in the city of Münster, North Rhine-Westphalia in Germany. Over 120 fields of study in 15 departments, the university offers a wide range of subjects across the sciences, social sciences and the humanities. The university has its roots in the Münster's Jesuit College, founded in 1588, and the convent of lay sisters Liebfrauen-Überwasser, founded in 1040, of which it took its seal. The convent was dissolved in 1773, so that its funds could be used to found the University of Münster on 16 April 1780.
