The two year MA in Design, Multimedia and Visual Communication (LM-12), established in the A.Y. 2007/2008, is a second level university program in the field of Design that aims to train a designer able to think up and plan communication artifacts’ contents, aesthetic and technological aspects in both analog and digital environments. During the two-year program students acquire skills, tools and methodologies relevant to the design of communication artifacts in the fields of design thinking, communication studies, typography, graphics, advertising, multimedia, interaction design, performing and exhibit design. The training activity concerns the following main themes: corporate identity (i.e. the institutional and corporate image and its close relationship with design of services), type design, photography, editorial graphics, the design of information and communication systems (infographics), public utility communication; multimedia and interactive design, gaming, video editing, kinetic graphics, new media design, performing arts and exhibit design. The study plan offers two programs, respectively taught in Italian and English, and includes eight integrated studios: three concerning different aspects of Visual and Graphic Design, there concerning Multimedia Design fields, one Exhibit Design studio and a Final studio. Other courses concern disciplines such as: photography, video editing, theories and practices of the graphic, electronic and digital arts, storytelling, digital education, sociology of cultural processes, entertainment artifacts design and computer engineering. Graduate students will be able to work both as freelancers, and as art directors, executives or team leaders in design studios, companies, communication agencies or any other workspace in which visual communication is an integral part of the corporate mission. Graduates can also continue their training during the Ph.D. course.

About University

The Department of Classics was created in 2010, bringing together archaeological, historical, philological, literary, epigraphic and linguistic disciplines related to antiquity, which had previously been hosted in a range of different departments. As a result of this, the department both promotes and supports constant interaction between the disciplines and interdisciplinary approaches to antiquity.

With some 70 faculty members, we are one of the largest and most preeminent institutions in the field. We carry out research in all disciplines related to the ancient world, from the Prehistory to the Middle Ages, in Europe, Africa and in the Near and Middle East.

The Department is organised into three Sections: Archaeology, Greek and Latin Philology and History, Epigraphy and Topography (East and Ancient Mediterranean). It also boasts eight laboratories, a rich research library, with more than 150,000 volumes, divided into four main thematic areas (Archaeology, Classical and Byzantine Philology, Prehistoric Archaeology, Ancient History and Topography), and four museums (Museo dell’Arte Classica, Museo delle Origini, Museo del Vicino Oriente, Museo delle Antichità Etrusche e Italiche), which form part of the Polo Museale Sapienza.

The Department offers:

• two BA courses in Italian: Archaeological Science and Classics;

• two MA courses in Italian: Archaeology; Philology, Literature and History of the Ancient World;

• one BA course in English: Classics;

• one MA course in English: Classical Archaeology (distance learning course, in collaboration with Unitelma Sapienza);

• two PhD courses: in Archaeology and in Philology and History of the ancient world;

• the School of Specialization in Archaeology;

• Master of Architecture for Archaeology (in collaboration with the Faculty of Architecture).
