Liberal Studies In Communication
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.
Students are expected to attain level B1 proficiency in English. Proficiency may be certified at the time of matriculation by submitting a certificate of level B1 language proficiency or better, or by sitting the SLAM (University Language Centre) placement test during the first year of studies only, between September and December. Students who do not pass the test must follow the SLAM language courses and obtain appropriate certification within the year the plan of study calls for a language exam.
The degree programme provides you with the opportunity to carry out a training experience abroad for a period of 5/6 months at various locations in Spain, France, Germany, Sweden, Finland and the United Kingdom, with the possibility of extending your stay or repeating the experience for up to 12 months. Under the mobility programme, you may attend courses, do research or work on your degree thesis in subject areas related to information and communication, publishing, entertainment and arts.
Our partner universities include: Cardiff, Stockholm and Helsinki, where courses are held entirely in English; Barcelona, Madrid and Zaragoza in Spain; numerous institutions in France (Paris, Lille, Montpellier, Le Mans, Avignon); Heidelberg in Germany.
We also take part in the Erasmus Plus Placement programme which provides mobility opportunities also for recent graduates (within 12 months of graduation).
Exams taken abroad, research activities and degree thesis work are recognized following a learning agreement with the host institution. You will define the learning agreement prior to departure, based on the courses, exams and activities that you intend to take at the partner university according to the requirements of your Italian study plan.
