With 4 campuses, 12 faculties, 41,000 students and a teaching staff of more than 1,400, Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore is Europe's largest private university. Founded in Milan in 1921 by Father Agostino Gemelli, the University also has campuses in Rome, Brescia and Piacenza-Cremona. Just a few figures illustrate the breadth and depth of the University's core curriculum, in both humanities and sciences: 41 three-year degree programmes, 37 two years graduate programmes, 6 intensive-study degree programmes, 53 schools of specialization, almost 100 master degree programmes and 7 graduate schools.
Research activity draws on 51 institutes, 24 departments and 72 research centres, plus another 5 centres at the University, and is aimed towards the study and understanding of issues crucial to life and society: new frontiers in economics and bioethics, the recovery of cultural assets, changes in the field of law, family trends, the phenomenon of the mass media, the development of political systems, the aims of medicine, technological applications of mathematics and physics, and the most recent discoveries in environmental research.
Productive dialogue between teaching and research allows for an approach drawing on various disciplines, which helps students to navigate within the sphere of scientific knowledge in an independent and responsible manner. From registration through to graduation, focus on an interdisciplinary approach is supported by guidance and tutoring activities, internships, foreign study programmes within and outside Europe, and placement services that benefit from the University's strong ties with the business world. This focus does not end with the completion of university studies; it continues with alumni having access to numerous ongoing training and post-graduate programmes, including those regarding their professional careers.
Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore has a total of more than 600,000 square metres of floor space dedicated to education and scientific research, matched by the assistance guaranteed by the Agostino Gemelli General Hospital in Rome: a single university with a campus extending to six Italian cities, with its seat in the historic Cistercian monastery situated near the Saint Ambrose Basilica in the heart of Milan.
