About

History

In the late Middle Ages, with the papal bull of 1339, Verona was officially conferred the status of studium generale by Pope Benedict XII, with three branches: Law, Medicine and Art. However, it was only in the late 1950s that Verona properly established its own university. 

Education

The University of Verona offers a range of degree programmes in different disciplines, including Economics, Law, Arts and Humanities, Communication, Foreign Languages and Literatures, Education, Philosophy, Social Science, Medicine, Exercise Science, Mathematics, Biotechnology and Computer Science. 

There are over 60 programmes, comprising various undergraduate and postgraduate degrees held at different campuses to best serve the community's needs. The programmes are becoming increasingly international, with individual modules, and even some entire courses, taught in other languages.

Research

The University of Verona's research strengths are rooted in its active involvement in both pure and applied cutting-edge academic research, as well as in the diversity of the disciplines covered. The fundamental structures for academic research are the university departments. There are four macro-discipline areas that oversee three departments in Arts and Humanities, three departments in Law and Economics, four departments in Life and Health Sciences, and two departments in Natural Sciences and Engineering.
