Program Description:

University of Rome La Sapienza


                    
Italy's capital city and home to The Vatican, Rome is a treasure trove of history, providing glimpses of its rich history for who all who walk its cobbled roads. Ancient Rome meets the medieval, and the modern runs into the Renaissance to reveal the 2,700 year legacy of this great city at every turn. Today, Rome's formidable legacy is upheld by its people.  Students walk dogs in the park that was once the mausoleum of the family of the Emperor Augustus, and trace the footsteps of the infamous Michelangelo, and Bernini, Napoleon, and Mussolini. The result is a Modern Rome with one foot in the present and one foot in the past.

University of Rome la Sapienza (Sapienza Università di Roma), founded in 1303 by Pope Boniface VIII, is one of the oldest universities in the world and a high performer among the largest universities in international rankings. The main campus was opened in 1935. It is situated close to the city center, and is the largest in Europe - a real city within a city where teaching activities are integrated with libraries, museums as well as comprehensive student services. Faculties and Departments also carry out their activities in decentralized locations in different parts of the city.  There are two other university campuses elsewhere in Lazio.

La Sapienza offers a vast array of courses including degree programs, PhD courses, one to two year professional courses and specialization schools in many disciplines, run by 63 Departments and 11 Faculties.
