University of Geneva
The University of Geneva (Université de Genève) is a university in Geneva, Switzerland.

It remained markedly theological during the seventeenth century, where other disciplines began to be added, while becoming a center for scholarly Enlightenment. In 1873 their religious associations fell, which acquired the secular character.
Today it plays a leading role in many fields - its location in Geneva gives it a privileged location for studies in diplomatic and international affairs. It is also considered one of the leading universities in research topics in Europe, as it has made remarkable discoveries in the area of Earth sciences and also in genetics, among other fields.
