The Programme: overview

Starting from A.Y. 2021/22, the MA provides the theoretical, technical and methodological skills for the design of complex digital communication systems. Through a continuous synthesis between creativity and strategy, and with an analytical and systemic approach to design that refers to cognitive psychology and contemporary visual culture, the MA deals with the study and design of digital interfaces (websites, apps, digital publishing, internet of things, etc.) and has a focus on user experience (UX/UI) as well as on information architecture.

Learning Objectives:
