Museology New Media and Museum Communication

Program director: Prof. Massimo Negri


Our Master’s course has a unique approach to museology in its most innovative form, especially at a European level. It is carried out in collaboration with the European Museum Academy Foundation (NL) which contributes with its experts and educational resources.

Articulated e-learning is the key point: the online modules also offer students abroad the opportunity to take part in this course under careful tutoring.

The programme is designed for those interested in acquiring skills in contemporary museology and the interconnections between museum and heritage, as well as in new media and museum communication.


The study program consists of:
On line Modules planned by EMA experts and professionals with a documented international experience;
Optional attendance at international meetings organized by the European Museum Academy (costs and details will be specified on occasion of each event).

Each module consists of a video lecture , tutorials , a video conclusion and readings.
