Communication and information play a leading role in public and private organisations. To integrate in such professional contexts, graduates are required to acquire a specialised knowledge of the mechanisms regulating the communication processes and the tools needed to govern them. The degree programme offers theoretical and practical studies that provide students with the ability to recognise the specific features of possible types of text (written, visual, audio-visual, multimedia) and to experiment the production of communication strategies mainly linked to the so-called “new media”. The programme has a limited number of places; please refer to the department website for more details on admission criteria and procedures.

Course content

Students acquire skills relating to editorial activities and the production of texts for cultural and editorial environments. The basic theoretical preparation is sided by a practical training path, in which students shall apply the knowledge acquired to specific contexts such as cinema, television or web. Students who do not have a good knowledge of the Italian language are individually supported in a manner to be agreed with the professors. Educational activities in the classroom also offer the opportunity to listen to the recordings of the lectures via ONELab services; the service also includes a timetable for contacting the professors online in addition to the traditional visiting hours.
