Profile of the programme In agreement with the principles which presided the creation at UBI of the 1st study cycle in Sciences of
Culture, and in its commitment to scientific and pedagogical robustness, the new programme boasts a
distinctive connection to the surrounding region and its institutions, cultural and otherwise, as well as a
marked professionalising penchant, along with the indispensable focus of the students opting for the
research path.
Stemming from the firm commitment to entrepreneurship in the multidisciplinary area of Culture and
Studies on Culture, which finds its way into the curriculum and is evident in the institutional cooperation
with the partner entities, the new programme will also foster internationalisation, attracting students from
abroad, promoting the mobility of teaching staff and students, the visibility of research and projects
developed in the remit of its teaching-learning activities.
Key learning outcomes Resulting from a close interinstitutional collaboration, the new programme will afford its future graduates:
the ability to take part in cultural initiatives with high conceptual and operational versatility; to evoke new
dynamics in endogenous and exogenous contexts, signalling new research lines and the emergence of
new social and professional dynamics; to grasp concepts and practices of cultural entrepreneurship,
developing the critical ability to evaluate its impact and measure its effects; to creatively conceive projects
theoretically sustained in the understanding of the role of culture in the wider context of artistic practices,
against the backdrop of the diversity of its expressions; the command of concepts and practices in cultural
policy, at once specific objects of research and models for action in domains such as identities, economics
of creativity, or cultural production and dissemination.
Occupational profiles of graduates The new Master Program in Studies on Culture of UBI offers two distinct possibilities at the end of its multidisciplinary basis training which is sponsored by the attendance of its curricular path, a vocational or professional route and the classical scientific investigation path, signaling as its specialization areas the Cultural entrepreneurship, Culture and artistic expressions and the Cultural policies.
