Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile

The Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile was founded on June 21, 1888 by Monsignor Mariano Casanova, Archbishop of Santiago. His goal was to create an institution capable of blending academic excellence and training based on the Christian doctrine. The local and universal historical context that the Church faced when the University was founded inspired the institution to train professionals who led Christian lives and who could renew energies for the coming generations. The University’s mission is for “Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile to reach excellence in the creation and transference of knowledge and educational training of people, inspired by Catholic values and always at the service of the Church and society”. UC’s vision is “to transmit, through all of its activities, a commitment to its foundational mission and its essential Catholic identity. Our hope is that the spirit that inspires and enlightens us be reflected in our University’s hallways, courtyards, classrooms, in the messages we transmit each day, in the relationships with our students, academic staff, professionals, administrative staff and society as a whole. General facts and figures for 2018: 25.378 undergraduate students; 3.159 master’s degree students; 1.118 PhD students;18 faculties, 104 undergraduate programs; 35 PhD programs; 97 master’s degree programs, 64 medical specialities, 3 dental specialities.
