MASTER COURSE
Master Course – Overview
Featured Majors

The Master Course is addressed to students who have already acquired a basic and professional foundation in their field, equivalent to the level of graduates of Accademia Riaci’s academic programs as well as college graduates. The course is also open to professionals with proven experience in a field concerning the subjects of the Master Course, who wish to further their expertise.
The goal of our master programs is to offer students the opportunity to bring their specialized study to the highest level and apply it in the actual professional environment. Students perform advanced research according to the themes chosen by their own initiative, under the close guidance of the professors. During the second half of the program, students carry out a “corporate research”, a joint project in collaboration with Italian companies and/or professionals, to apply their study to practice. Upon successful completion of the graduation project and final examination, a Diploma certificate is awarded.
