The University of Tuscia is a relatively young university, founded on the 7th of July 1981. The first faculty to start lectures was Agriculture and Forestry; then four other faculties were added: Mathematical, Physical and Natural Sciences, Modern Foreign Languages and Literatures, Economics, and Cultural Heritage Conservation. A new faculty has recently joined the others: Political Sciences. The number of students enrolled is around 11.000, on average, with around 300 members of the teaching staff. The administrative staff includes more than 300 people. The university has always been very active by participating in projects both at the national and international level. The University of Tuscia offers 15 different lines of degrees at Master level (MSc) and 14 at doctorate level (PhD). At the moment the University is involved in several projects financed by the EU; most of them are being carried out by the Faculty of Agriculture, the most dynamic and lively Faculty.
