It is now a component of the Baden-Württemberg Pädagogische Hochschulsystem. The institution has two faculties and provides 11 master's degree programs in addition to nine bachelor's degree programs. Two significant campuses make up PH Schwäbisch Gmünd: the main campus and administrative center are located in Oberbettringen, and the downtown campus is located in the city (campus for music students).
