The one-year Master in Food Culture and Communications is designed for international students seeking an innovative approach to the study of food and the ways in which it is discussed.
The program offers a wide mix of in-class lessons, exercises, guided tastings, and study trips in Italy and abroad to provide a multiexperiential understanding of both high-quality artisanal and industrial food products, as well as the necessary knowledge and expertise for work in the food communications field. Instructors include university professors and scholars working in the sector at both national and international levels, journalists, and other visiting gastronomy experts.
Through an approach that merges the anthropology, history, and economics of food consumption, students acquire the tools for developing new communications, promotional, and sales strategies within the realm of high-quality gastronomy. Graduates emerge ready for careers in marketing and public relations, education and project management.
The language of instruction is English. The program lasts 12 months and a minimum of 75% attendance is required. The Master will end in November 2012.
