The degree programme in Liberal Studies in Communication is designed to provide students with the theoretical, technical and practical competences required to assume professional roles in the media and communication fields.

In particular, it offers a solid, even if non-specialist, grounding in the fields of multimedia communication (radio, television, cinema, newspapers, internet, etc.), with a specific focus on the communications networks connected with aesthetic and philosophical reflection, language, historical and social traditions, and the performing arts.

On the strength of the competences they develop, graduates in Liberal Studies in Communication can pursue careers in the various professional fields connected with communications and public relations.

They can enter roles as news agency contributors, magazine journalists (after subsequent training and a State examination), public relations employees, tourist promotion experts, media buyers, media planners, trade managers in advertising agencies, advertising programmers, public relations executives, sponsoring technicians, advertising technicians, visualizers, meeting planners, congress organisers, party planners, reception planners, party managers, congress centre managers, communications directors for sporting events, other professional cultural and recreational service intermediaries.

Application and admission: Local enrolment with access test.

Access is subject to passing a test (TOLC-SU, CISIA OnLine Test, www.cisiaonline.it ) which will give rise to a merit ranking.

Recommended, not mandatory.
