PUBLISHING, MUSIC AND DIGITAL COMMUNICATION

The Publishing, Music and Digital Communication curriculum provides students with detailed knowledge of the digital technologies and production methods of the various sectors of publishing and multimedia communication. The curriculum’s multidisciplinary teaching programme innovatively combines sectors of computer science with a broad spectrum of humanistic subjects.

Its objective is to train highly specialised experts capable of critical and mindful entry, in positions of responsibility, into the world of publishing, broadly speaking, and, specifically, systems for publishing music, letters and audiovisual production. The Publishing, Music and Digital Communication curriculum is orientated towards training of professionals capable of interpreting cultural dynamics and technological trends and managing them, in design and creative roles, according to the sector’s economic and production requirements.

Graduates are provided with the necessary tools to undertake careers specialising in the sectors of digital press, discography, restoration of audio documents, audio signal processing, and music and audiovisual production and post-production, with employment prospects in the fields of publishing management, the digital industry, visual, musical and film communication, and visual and performing arts events. These are roles that, today, require appropriate expertise and high levels of professionalism in order to convey and manage cultural content via specific multimedia tools and the internet.

International Master in agreement with the Pontifical Ambrosian Institute of Sacred Music (PIAMS), Vatican City, for award of a double degree

A special arrangement for award of a double degree exists between the University of Udine’s Multimedia Communication and Information Technology Master Degree Programmes (International Curriculum – Publishing, Music and Digital Communication) and the Philological and Musicological Curriculum of the Pontifical Ambrosian Institute of Sacred Music (PIAMS), Vatican City. Each year, a maximum of 10 students will be admitted to the international curriculum. Students participating in this double degree programme must earn 24 course credits at the PIAMS and, on completion of their studies, discuss a thesis, written in Italian or English, at both Universities. These students will therefore obtain a Licentiate qualification from the Pontifical Ambrosian Institute of Sacred Music and a Multimedia Communication and Information Technology Master Degree from the University of Udine.
