The University of Camerino (Italian: Università degli Studi di Camerino) is a university located in Camerino, Italy. The University of Camerino (Italian: Università degli Studi di Camerino) is the best university of Italy with fewer than 10,000 students according to the Guida Censis Repubblica 2011 and 2012 ranking.[2] The University of Camerino is the 16th oldest university in the world.[3] It claims to have been founded in 1336, was officially recognized by the Pope in 1727, and is organized into five faculties.

History[edit]

The great literate and jurist Cino from Pistoia, living in Marche in the years 1319–21, and in Camerino in the spring of 1321, remembers the territory blooming with juridical schools. Camerino has been a center of learning since no later than 1200, offering degrees in civil law, canonical law, medicine, and literary studies. Gregory XI took the decision upon the request of Gentile III da Varano with the papal edict of 29 January 1377, directed to the commune and to the people, authorizing Camerino to confer (after appropriate examination) bachelor and doctoral degrees with apostolic authority.

In 1727, Benedict XIII founded the Universitas Studii Generalis with the faculties of theology, jurisprudence, medicine, and mathematics. On 13 April 1753 the validity of the degrees from Camerino was extended to the whole territory of the Holy Roman Empire and confers to the rector the title of palatine count. In 1861, after annexation by the Kingdom of Italy, the university is proclaimed "free" and it remains such up to 1958, when it becomes a State University.

Organization[edit]

These are the 5 faculties in which the university is divided into:
