COMMA’s program revolves around three disciplinary linchpins: Social Sciences (Sociology, Politics, Psychology), Economics and Media; it provides a solid and grounded multidisciplinary approach to lead students understanding the processes underlying creative industries and becoming communication professionals with a specific expertise on the fashion and food sectors.
A peculiar attention is devoted to the ethics of creative enterprises, and in particular to issues such as sustainability, social rights, and social and cultural valorisation.
Planning of educational activities first semester a.y. 2020/21
the School of Political and Social Sciences has decided that all classes of the bachelor degree program in Communication Management will start on October 5th, 2020. Due to the enduring COVID-19 pandemic worldwide, the School will deliver the courses during the first term online only. Indeed, the first-year class mainly consist of international students, and many of them could find it difficult, or even impossible, to travel to Milan in the Fall.
The School, together with Università Cattolica, will take all the necessary measures to start the program safely with in-person attendance by the second term. Meanwhile, during the first term, lessons and seminars, either streaming or video-recorded, will be delivered and made available to students through Blackboard, our digital platforms for teaching activities, which is also the repository of all the support materials. Professors guarantee weekly on-line office hours to meet students and answer their doubts and questions. Students will take online their first term’s exams.
Second term’s profit exams will take place in presence (if the general conditions will make this possible), or remotely.
All lessons and classes will be video-recorded and made available to students online for the entire duration of the academic year, regardless of the trend in public health conditions.
Information on the scheduled time-table for the first semester, subject to minor adjustments, are available at this link.
During the second term, mixed formulas will also be available, with some students in the classroom with the teachers and other students - unable to attend – connected online.
In order to welcome students warmly a webinar will be organized in September, on 17th at 4.30pm, Italian time, to introduce each other and let students get familiar with the Campus and the professors.
Students may therefore make plans to travel to Milan from January 2021 or choose to arrange an accommodation in the Fall 2020, if allowed to leave their own country and enter the Italian territory and if they wish to get familiar with the city and the Cattolica campus. In this last case, the professors will be glad to welcome them personally, in compliance with the safety measures adopted on Campus.
