The history of Pontifical University of John Paul II in Cracow (UPJPII) starts at the same time as the Jagiellonian University - the oldest Polish University.


The Pope Bonifacy IX established the Faculty of Theology in 1397, within the framework of Studium Generale.


Since then, the faculty has been developing actively during centuries, gaining popularity both in Poland and abroad.


It’s functioning and acknowledgement in the scientist community has been interrupted by the communism.


By implementing the unilateral resolution of Ministry Commission in 1954, the faculty of theology has been removed from the education program. Nevertheless, faculty didn’t stop with its educational activities.


Currently, UPJPII is dynamically developing University. Our didactic offer is an interesting offer for young people. Within the framework of 5 departments, we have been still opening new courses and specializations, accustomed to the current needs. We build new contacts abroad; our students get a chance to develop their passion and hobbies: plenty of scientific groups, well equipped library, radio Bonus with professional studio, Psalmodia choir which is very successful…there are even more possibilities.


The tradition that we are rooted in, obliges us to take care of the high education quality and taking new scientific challenges, according to the Jean Paul II’s directions. He has been always highlighting how positive role the church has got in field of culture and education.


We hope that Pontifical University of John Paul II will be having an impact on maintaining the European identity by the relation between science and faith reinforcement as well as reminding about the Christian roots of European culture.


The school is a member of an International Catholic Universities Federation (FIUC) and its European selection (FUCE), the Polish Universities Conference (KRUP, regimen-KRUP) and the Academic Rectors of Polish schools Conference (KRASP).
