There are also departments of geography-planning, the engineer of the countryside in Annecy and history, and a faculty of philosophy with more than 90 doctoral students. All three public universities in Lyon (Lyon 1, Lyon 2, Lyon 3) are derivative of the former University of Lyon established in 1896.
The university has steadily expanded its international relations and has relations with universities in various countries.
Because of past extreme-right tendencies of some of its staff, the university was accused in the 1980s and 1990s of complacency with regard anti-Semitic and racist elements. The Report on racism and Holocaust denial at the University Jean Moulin-Lyon 3, prepared under the direction of Henry Rousso at the request of the Minister of Education and released in October 2004, showed that the number of teachers involved was limited.
The university is located on three different campuses: the first one, called "Les Quais", is by the Rhône (river), the second, called "Manufacture des Tabacs" in the SE part of Lyon, and the last one in Bourg-en-Bresse (Ain department).
