Description

The Master of Arts in Communication Design pairs a sound education in marketing and integrated communication with a wide range of technical-expression skills (graphic design, digital design, media design), aimed at hybridizing expression tools to generate actual communication outputs. The main feature of this program is the synthesis between the typical marketing approach, as usually covered in more corporate business oriented courses, and the artistic-expressive approach as applied to the context of use of the new technologies.

During the MA, students have the opportunity to:

  • Decode the elements and languages of communication as well as their contemporary cultural and imaginary contexts
  • Assess different languages of communication and identify the impact of the communication processes on today's socio-economic and cultural context
  • Manage complex communication projects, finding the right balance between the economic and the artistic-creative dimension

The MA in Communication Design program is recognized by the Italian Ministry of Education, Universities and Research (MIUR) as a Master of Arts degree (120 CFA).
