How can we promote dialogue between different cultures which are getting increasingly closer due to economic globalization and migration? What are the most effective communication tools for institutional communication in the public and private spheres?
This study program will help you find the answers to all these questions and discover much more. This course aims to give you the basic knowledge in the field of communication and the soft skills that employers look for, in various sectors: business and government communication, in the cultural and charity sector, in traditional and online publishing, and in training institutions.
The study programme in Media, Communication and Culture includes theoretical disciplines that provide you with the basis for a critical analysis of the mechanisms of contemporary communication such as: Psychology of Communication, Cultural Anthropology, Elements of Linguistic Theory, and Sociology of Culture. The course also explores in depth the various forms of art and Aesthetics.
Besides these subjects, you will also study modules that have a more practical focus, such as Theory and Methodology of Marketing and Communication, Web Design and Visual Communication, Statistics, and Public and Media Law.
Thanks to the 12 open credits option - credits that you can obtain through optional modules and workshops offered within the programme or in other Faculties - you will be able to customise your degree by studying in depth more disciplines within Economics, Visual Arts or New Technologies.
The feature that makes this course stand out among similar programmes offered in other Italian universities is that the courses are taught in three different languages, and this will be a real asset for you when you apply for jobs.
