The University of Teramo has 5 Faculties, 16 Degree Programmes, more than 20 Masters, 6 Specialisation Schools and is involved in 10 research areas.

There are two centres of excellence - dealing with law, politics and communication on the one hand, and with studies in agriculture, biology and veterinary medicine on the other. From such strong points, innovative educational paths have originated, also creating a link to the job market.

Research has achieved concrete results enabling our University to build a very close network of relations within the scientific community worldwide. Both postgraduate and vocational training guarantees high-level proficiency in several areas - legal professions, economics, social sciences, communication, management, politics, governance as well as animal health.

Internationalisation in and beyond EU Member States is a key element of the University of Teramo, which has set up fruitful collaborations with the centres of excellence located in the US, on the Adriatic coast and in Latin America. Such internationalisation is underpinned by integrating the ministerial grants for student mobility with University funds and strengthening University Language Centre's activities in order to enhance foreign language learning.

ICTs have always influenced both our way of thinking and teaching/learning methods. As a result, an e-learning platform and language, multimedia, television and radio laboratories have been implemented over the last few years.
