The Faculty offers graduate and PhD programmes in 10 disciplines (Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Industrial Chemistry, Biology, Biotechnology, Geology, Natural and Environmental Science, and Art Restoration Science), spanning six departments situated on the University campus.
Faculty departments operate excellent laboratories and research facilities, libraries with a wealth of modern and historical books, reading rooms for students, and museums. They aim to provide the highest quality research and education in all the fields of science: several scientific prizes were awarded to the Faculty in 2011. Graduates and PhD members of the Faculty go on to work in research institutions, public administration and private companies.
Researchers trained at Sapienza are highly regarded and often gain national and international faculty positions.
