Main focus

; Graduates of this master’s programme will have a solid understanding of the change of communicative paradigm in regard to digital media and multimedia journalism.

Graduates will be capable of innovation and entrepreneurship in the application of resources, methods, and strategies used in academic research in this domain. They will also possess an in-depth knowledge of information system management, of the visualisation, marketing, and distribution of products, and of interactive audiovisual and journalistic projects. Finally, graduates will be familiar with new models for the creation, production, and consumption of emerging formats and genres (e.g. crowdsourcing, podcast, videogames, social networks, etc.).


Students that have completed the second cycle have the following competencies: – Have demonstrated knowledge and understanding that is founded upon a basis or opportunity for originality in developing and/or applying ideas, often within a research context. – Can apply their acquired knowledge and understanding, and problem solving abilities in new or unfamiliar environments within broader (or multidisciplinary) contexts related to their field of study. – Have the ability to integrate knowledge and handle complexity, and formulate judgments with incomplete or limited information, but that include reflecting on social and ethical responsibilities linked to the application of their knowledge and judgments. – Can communicate their conclusions, and the knowledge and rationale underpinning these, to specialist and non-specialist audiences clearly and unambiguously. – Have the learning skills to allow them to continue to study in a manner that may be largely self-directed or autonomous.
