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.

Programme contents

The study of psychology, sociology, information technology, linguistic and semiotic subjects allows students to gain the theoretical knowledge of communication processes. Importance is given to the development of communication abilities, with a special focus on language aspects. 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. Classroom teaching activities are enriched by the possibility of accessing the registration of lessons after their delivery, through the services of ONELab; the service also provides for the availability of an online receiving time to supplement the face-to- face one.

Job opportunities

The degree programme offers the skills that are specific to those involved in communication and public relations, multimedia experts, as well as professionals of publishing companies and advertising and communication agencies. Graduates in Communication sciences have the knowledge and skills required to work in organisations and institutions in the field of external and internal communication. The professional profile also includes roles such as “communication entrepreneurs and managers” and professional figures connecting the various functions and/or different organisations, and the audience. This degree programme allows access without educational debits to the department's Master's Degrees in Advertising, Digital Communication and Corporate Creativity and in Management and Corporate Communication.
