Journalism

The Journalism course creates professionals that can answer the needs of a labour market that is increasingly demanding and competitive. The students have a social sciences background, in order to obtain the much needed cultural and communication competencies indispensable to the job. At the same time journalism workshops – written, radio, television and digital – will allow them to simulate the expressions and the production routines of each media.

The study plan is adapted to the Bologna process.
