Founded in 1222, UNIPD — now home to UGA's dual master's degree program in sustainable agriculture — is considered the fifth-oldest university in the world. Located about 25 miles from Venice in northern Italy's Veneto region, the city of Padova is much older. Padova traces its roots to 1183 B.C. In addition to scores of notable faculty and alumni – Galileo Galilei taught mathematics at UNIPD for 17 years, and astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus and Andrea Vesalio, the founder of modern anatomy, both studied there – the world's oldest botanical garden, established in 1545, is also located at the university.
