The Course in Technologies and Languages of Communication favors an in-depth study on the designing and implementation of innovative content, products, and services applicable to digital communication.
This educational path is grounded on the awareness that Paul Watzlawick’s first axiom - according to which “people cannot avoid communicating” - is currently valid to a much broader extent than in the past, due to complexities of the modern communication dimension, as mediated by digital technologies. In such a context, each single performed act acquires significance in communication terms and, what really matters, leaves a trace behind, a sign, of a more or less digital nature, made up of data and information that contribute to the daily information pollution.
In this framework, students gain both theoretical and practical competencies in communication and digital and interactive media languages. In detail, the course focuses on the complex pool of technical, scientific, creative, and productive knowledge required to design, create, assess, and promote interactive products.
