The Academic Master in Photography and Visual Design integrates theoretical study with workshops and practical projects. The program is enriched by guided visits to research centers and performance spaces, audiovisual production facilities, publishing houses, theaters, artistsâ€™ studios, museums, and contemporary art galleries. Workshops simulating real assignments in real technologically-equipped studios are conducted in collaboration with a network of partner companies and institutions and focus on various project areas from photography exhibitions to magazines, photo/video interactions, and corporate projects. The second part of the program is dedicated to a period of internship at selected companies or institutions such as publishing companies, editorial offices, photo agencies, photo archives, museums, galleries, or photo studios that facilitate entry into the job market. The combination of all these different aspects and approaches represents the tool through which this program prepares groundbreaking professionals to enter the world of photography, arts, and national and international communication.
During the Academic Master, students have the opportunity to:
- Acquire a solid base of historical and cultural knowledge
- Develop the technical and practical skills necessary for success in national and international markets
- Learn a number of professional methods and presentation techniques that will be useful in the working environment
The Master in Photography and Visual Design program is recognized by the Italian Ministry of Education, Universities and Research (MIUR) as an Academic Masterâ€™s degree (60 CFA).
