Ranked #3 by the Eduniversal Worldwide Best Masters Ranking in Arts and Cultural Management, three years in a row, the Master Program in Culture Studies is aimed at graduate students from the Humanities and Social Sciences, interested in a structured discussion of cultural phenomena in the global world.

The MA in Culture Studies is based upon an innovative training model and collaborative effort between academic and cultural institutions. Organized around a core course of theory and practice-based seminars, the program operates through knowledge transfer, demonstrating how cultural practices illuminate critical reflection.

The MA in Culture Studies takes into consideration the ever-increasing value that the arts and culture offer to the understanding of collective and individual identities, as well as the importance of the creative economy in an era marked by globalization, and rapid cultural dissemination.

This 2-year program has three specializations and is organized around a core course of theory and practice-based seminars. The first year is curricular and requires the completion of 60 ECTS. The second year is dedicated to the final assignment: dissertation, project, or internship. During the second year students also have to take a research seminar each semester to monitor their progression.
