Characterization of the Cycle of Studies:

Resulting from a partnership between the FACULTIES of ARTS, FINE ARTS, ECONOMY and ENGINEERING, the Master’s degree in Communication Sciences has the goals of providing their students:

  • a scientific and professional education, combining solid knowledge in Human and Social Sciences with new information and communication technologies and the aesthetic and creative dimensions;
  • further competences of analysis, production and creation of media and communication processes.

The Masters is structured in three areas – Political Communication; Culture, Heritage and Science; and Media and Journalism Studies – adopting a four-semester syllabus, worth 120 ECTS:
  • 60 ECTS of a teaching/learning, where the student will choose one of the three available areas, in which he/she will be able to opt for certain subjects worth 6 ECTS, to complement their training according to his/her own interests and competences;
  • On the third semester, the student will opt for a Professional Specialization (which requires the accomplishment of an internship and an internship report) or Research (which requires the accomplishment of a dissertation). Both options will extend to the 4th semester, fulfilling the remaining 60 ECTS.
