Founded in 1939 in the heart of Rome, LUMSA is an accredited private university dedicated to educating young persons and professionals in the great tradition of the humanities, offering academic excellence tailored to the needs of the individual.
The university seeks not only to prepare its students for success, but to pass on the great wealth of knowledge and values which will help them contribute to the progress of humanity, in whichever field they pursue.
Its distinctive blend of Catholic values and humanistic tradition, academic rigor and individual attention, has earned LUMSA recognition as one of the top private universities in Italy (CENSIS 2012).
LUMSA believes that any education must be put in a global context: students are taught not only the history and philosophy at the core of their chosen field, but are given an international formation so that they may become protagonists in an increasingly interconnected world. To this end, scholars and professionals from institutions throughout the world are invited to give seminars and conferences to the university community each year, and the number of core classes offered in English is constantly increasing. Students are also strongly encouraged to study abroad, through the ERASMUS program or through one of the agreements LUMSA has with universities beyond the EU.
The university is articulated in three Schools: School of Law, School of Economics, Political Sciences and Modern Languages, School of Human Studies. They offer both undergraduate and graduate degrees, with a current enrolment of around 8.000 students.
