Overview

The University of Santiago de Compostela (USC) can trace its roots to 1495. It is one of the oldest universities that have been continuously operating since being established. It is also the first university in Galicia, Spain. It has been consistently ranked as a top university in Spain. Also, it was conferred by the Ministry of Education the honor of being a Campus of International Excellence.

At the start, the institution was only a Grammatic Academy for the poor. Also, its curricula were centered around religious topics and training. It was in the 18th century that the university moved towards a more secular direction. In the 20th century, it underwent a growth spurt, rapidly expanding its course offerings and research in both the sciences and humanities.

Since its inception, the university has produced key figures with great contributions to their respective fields. These include the former prime minister, Mariano Rajoy; the first Galician woman astronomer, Antonina Ferrin Moreiras; and Castelao, the famous public intellectual.

Currently, USC awards degrees in the fields of (1) Health Sciences, (2) Physical Sciences, (3) Social Sciences, (4) Technical, and (5) Humanities. These are offered by its 19 faculties. These include the Faculties of Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, Philosophy, Philology, Physics, and Pharmacy, among others. USC also runs university schools including, those for Nursing, Labor Relations, and Optometry.

The university offers these degrees on its three campuses. The North Campus and South Campus are in Santiago while the third one is at Lugo. These house over 80 departments, offering over 60 degrees. Also, it is home to academic and extracurricular services, including the university library that holds more than one million volumes.

The university has an active research culture with a long rich heritage of scientific and social contributions. Its research efforts are currently overseen by its Network of Infrastructures to Support Research and Technological Development. Infrastructures on offer include a radiophysics laboratory, genomics facilities, and cryogenics equipment, among many others.

To support research work, USC also hosts interdisciplinary research organizations on its campuses. Currently, its comprehensive network includes 11 institutes, 11 research centers, four singular research centers, and two mixed research centers. Research organizations include the prestigious Institution of Galician Language, the USC Intelligent Technologies Research Center, and the Center for the Study of the History of the City.

Moreover, USC is active in turning university research into commercially viable products. The university puts emphasis on socially-beneficial products as well. This is all done through its Valuation, Transfer, and Entrepreneurship Area Program. It provides entrepreneurship support and even has a program for the creation of companies with origins in research.
