Course contents

Aiming to offer to our students of the Third Year various teaching activities that may potentially disclose potential future opportunities in the field of Fashion, the Bachelor Degree in "Culture e Pratiche della Moda" has planned throughout the years a relevant number of Seminars and Workshops. These teaching activities are held by scholars working in the fields of Fashion Studies and the Humanities and freelance professionals who are experts in various fields strictly related to Fashion (web design, photography, analysis of texts and communication, creation of events, archives, fashion collections, fashion styling, computer science applied to fashion, and so on). Given their nature, which is often practical and typical of a workshop, our Seminars of the Third Year are limited enrollment courses with compulsory attendance.
