CURRICULUM

MOBILITY STUDIES

SECOND CYCLE DEGREE PROGRAM IN HISTORICAL SCIENCES

A unique learning experience in a creative and inspiring environment,
to understand and face mobility in both the past and present!

Goals and Objectives

The mobility studies curriculum is driven by the belief that the humanities can play a crucial role in understanding and addressing mobility in modern society. Students will be immersed in the process through which people, texts, images, artefacts, commodities and ideas are moved, translated, transformed, adapted and negotiated by different social actors – sometime in distant spatial contexts – in the past and in the present. Global and local scenarios call for new experts who are trained in historical and cultural studies but ready for political and social action today. An interdisciplinary education at an international level and enriched by inter-sectoral experiences is fundamental to facing the current difficulties that young humanists face when approaching the new job market in both the private and public sectors.

Beyond the employment possibilities in the academy, high school or cultural institutions, such as libraries, museums and archives, graduates will be offered cognitive tools and concrete training opportunities to find a job in state and local government agencies, international organisations such as NGOs, cultural tourism and the heritage, digital and communications industries.


Student/Academic Opportunities

  • To meet visiting professors from relevant academic institutions from around the world
  • To apply for supplementary funding for Erasmus+ outgoing mobility
  • To apply for scholarships and study prizes
  • To pursue an internship program with Italian and foreign partners
