The Faculty of Communication Sciences is the only one in Switzerland to provide an interdisciplinary education, which blends the humanities, the social sciences, economics and technology. The Faculty offers specialists a solid background for various professional contexts: mass media, business, public institutions, and new technologies. Moreover, since 2012, it offers a comprehensive programme in Italian language, literature and culture, coordinated by the Institute of Italian Studies.
On the strength of its identity, combining intercultural perspectives, interdisciplinarity and multilingualism, and a careful eye towards listening skills, the Faculty brings together researchers and teachers from diverse backgrounds who share a common interest: communication.
The Faculty of Communication Sciences offers its academic degree programmes into three stages: a bachelor's (3 years) and a master's (2 years) degree and, for those willing to conduct postgraduate research, a three-year doctoral programme, awarding the degree of PhD in Communication Sciences.
