In 1909, the world's first forensic-science school joined the university community: a century later, this three-campus institution, where 12,000-plus students and 2,300 researchers study and work, has seven faculties and a School of Criminal Justice. Founded in 1537 as the only French-language school of Protestant theology, Lausanne teaches subjects that include Greek numismatics and cybermarketing.
