The future with an ancient heart
The University of Macerata (UniMC) was founded in 1290 and is one of the oldest universities in Europe. Over the years thousands of UniMc graduates have become distinguished professionals, entrepreneurs, leading public figures, educators, researchers: without any doubt, a bit of Italian, European and international history has been built by the alumni of UniMC.
This glorious past is projected into the future and UniMc is strongly committed to innovation both in teaching and research: the focus on the humanities and social sciences is UniMC’s main strength, and “innovating through the humanities” is its motto. Those interested in Law, Political Science and International Relations, Economics and Business, Education, Tourism and Cultural Heritage, Communication, Languages, Philosophy, and History, can find at UniMc a perfect place!
UniMC provides an international environment and by state-of-the-art services. At the same time it offers a unique opportunity to experience a typical Italian way of life: the university is located in the town center, with its historic buildings and medieval pathways. It is a “campus in the town”!
The town of Macerata is a quiet but vibrant town, located between the sea and the mountains, the perfect equilibrium between nature and man-made constructions. Many cultural events take place in Macerata, some of which are international renowned, such as the opera season “Macerata Opera” and the singer-songwriter festival “Musicultura”, both taking place in the unique and spectacular setting of the Sferisterio Arena.
The University mission consists in:
- increasing the value of a more than seven-century-long history dedicated to the merit and the quality of all the students, researchers, professors and technical-administrative staff;
- planning our choices with commitment and intelligence;
- improving and promoting the results of research into the excellence areas;
- expanding our international network to support the local development.
