COURSE OUTLINE

The course aims to deepen the students’ theoretico-critical and methodological knowledge in the fields of the communication of culture (from sociological, linguistic and literary standpoints) and of the performing arts (cinema, theatre, music, television). It gives students: critical awareness regarding the procedures of, and the production of contents for, the new media, adopting a markedly multidisciplinary approach; theoretico-methodological expertise in the field of the performing arts, considered from both a cultural point of view and from the perspectives of production and the market; expertise in the management of art events, as well as in the planning of contents for specialised publications and for companies operating in the sector of audiovisual, multimedia and interactive communication.

The curriculum lasts two years and offers courses belonging to the sociological, literary, linguistic and performing art (music, theatre, television, cinema) domains. Students will also have the chance to attend courses oriented to the ideation and production of cinematic and multimedia products in the form of documentaries, video clips, etc.

The course makes it also possible to obtain a double degree thanks to an agreement between the University of Catania and Université de Lorraine-Nancy (Master études et pratiques culturelles contemporaines; Master culture et tourisme).
