Why should I study here?

The University of Perugia was founded in 1308. In that year, Pope Clement V issued a bull entitled "Super specula," which granted the Studium of the city the authority to engage in higher education. The bull made Perugia a leggere generaliter, giving its degree courses universal validity and recognition. Formal imperial recognition of the University was granted in 1355, when Emperor Charles I granted Perugia the permanent right to have a University and to award degrees to students from all nations. In the 14th century, the University offered degrees in two fields: Law and General Arts.Today, research, education and consulting activities in the various disciplines are organized into 16 Departments, with about 24,000 students, 1,100 professors and researchers, and 1,100 staff members. The University also offers study programs in some other Umbrian towns: Assisi, Foligno, Narni, and Terni.In recent years, the University has undertaken a broad renewal of its degree programs and curricula, which prepare students to meet the demands of the labor market and to satisfy the needs for innovation expressed by employers in the private and public sectors. Nowadays, the University of Perugia offers a vast array of degree programs, which cover nearly all fields of study authorized by the national Ministry of Higher Education. The University's teaching faculty combines a long and solid tradition of excellence with a commitment to innovation and an interdisciplinary approach that ensures students the synergies needed for the acquisition of flexible educational training based on a mixture of skills and abilities. Post-graduate degrees are offered in top-rated specialization schools and doctoral programs, as well as a variety of masters programs in the various academic disciplines.

The Myth of American Exceptionalism

Featuring Jennifer Viemont
