Based on the University Institute for Advanced Studies (IUSS) model, the
Master in "Media Science and Technology" is organized on an annual basis
subdivided into three intensive parts.
During the first and second part
students must attend 14 classes (6 basic and 8 specialized classes).
At the beginning
of the third part students will be seconded to a Company where they will
work as interns on a project.
Each class consists of 45 hours, subdivided into 30 lecture hours
and 15 hours
for practical exercises, for a total of 540 lecture hours and 180 practice
Students are required to attend courses for 5 days a week, 6 hours a
day, for a total period of 24 teaching weeks.
At the end of each course students must pass a test.
At the end of the secondment a Master's diploma is awarded
after an oral discussion of the work project before an examining panel.
The School balances between general and specialized learning.
Every student draws up a personal study plan, selecting courses according to
their interests. Three courses are given each term, with each student selecting
two of them and attending 14 out of 17 courses.
