The course programs leading to the first-level academic diploma in the School of Sculpture are intended to develop skilled and qualified professionals who, taking account of the variety of codes of expression and technical innovations available, are able to develop their personal research and practice in the context of experimentation with both traditional and new expressive means.
Students in the School’s diploma course must:
- possess an adequate technical-operative mastery of methods and contents relative to the techniques and technologies of sculpture;
- possess methodological and critical skills permitting acquisition of competence in more advanced expressive means, techniques and technologies;
- be competent in at least one foreign language of the European Community, besides the mother tongue, in the main area of competence and for general information exchange;
- possess adequate skills for digital communication and management of information.
Graduates will undertake professional activities in various fields, both as free-lance professional artists and within the visual arts and other creative activities, as well as collaborating in the planning, design and execution of specific sculpture projects in traditional contexts as well as the fields of architecture, urbanistics and restoration, using both traditional techniques and new technologies and forms of expression employed in national and international contexts.
The Academies will organise, in collaboration with public and private institutions, internships and apprenticeships that will provide the specific skills needed, and will further define specific training models for each course of study.
In order to complete the curriculum and gain admittance to discussion of the written and practical thesis, candidates must pass all exams and obtain the following academic credits:
- 108 credits in foundation and specific educational activities (foundation 36-48 credits, specific 60-72 credits)
- 4 compulsory credits for a foreign European language
- 12 credits for the thesis and the three practical examinations
TOTAL CREDITS: 180
The diploma will be awarded when the candidate has obtained the required academic credits, has passed all exams and successfully discussed his or her thesis, also presenting three artistic projects agreed with the Head of Department.
In calculating credits candidates may not cite the same discipline more than once, unless this is expressly permitted.
