The course programs leading to the first-level academic diploma in the School of Graphics are intended to train skilled and qualified professionals who, taking account of the variety of expressive tools and technical innovations characterising the contemporary scene, are able to develop their personal research and production both in the traditional techniques of art graphics and design, and in elaborating and experimenting with contemporary multimedial graphics, as well as conservation and cataloguing of print art.
Students in the School’s diploma course must:
- possess an adequate knowledge of the representational techniques in the fields of copperplate engraving, silography, serigraphy, photography, computer graphics and printing techniques, as well as the history and methodology of graphic processes and art printing;
- possess adequate knowledge and methodological and critical tools to acquire skills in expressive languages, techniques and advanced technologies related to the sector;
- 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 computer skills for communication and management of information.
Graduates will undertake professional activities in various fields, as free-lance artists in the visual arts and other creative activities, as well as collaborating in the planning, design and execution of specific design projects, 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 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 has 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.
