University of Palermo

University Information, Campus and History
(Palermo, Italy)

The University of Palermo is located in the Sicilian city of Palermo. It was formally founded in 1805, but records show that an institution of higher learning existed in Palermo as early as the mid-15th century. This earlier university initially offered degree programmes in medicine and law, but when the Jesuit fathers came, philosophy and theology were added to its academic offerings. At one point in the 17th century, the Jesuits were expelled from Italy by King Ferdinand, which made the university inactive for the next 37 years.

Today, the University of Palermo presently has a student population of around 50,000 and a staff of over 2,000.

The University of Palermo has 12 faculties:
  • Agriculture
  • Architecture
  • Arts and Humanities
  • Economics
  • Educational Studies
  • Engineering
  • Law
  • Mathematical, Physical, and Natural Sciences
  • Medicine
  • Motory Science
