Program Description:

University of BolognaBol2

The University of Bologna was founded in 1088, making it the oldest university in continuous operation in the world being the first to use the term universitas for the corporations of students and masters which came to define the institution. Apart from the main campus in Bologna there are also campuses Cesena, Forlì, Ravenna, Rimini, and overseas in Buenos Aires.

The University is historically notable for its teaching of canon and civil law; indeed, it was central in the development of medieval Roman law. About the year 1200 the faculties of medicine and philosophy were formed. The medical faculty became famous in the 13th century for reviving the practice of human dissection, which had not been used in Europe since Roman times. The faculty of science was developed in the 17th century, and in the 18th century women were admitted as students and teachers.  Today the University has about 85,000 students in 11 schools.
