The complete list of courses with syllabi is available on our website at this link.
The semester will feature the specialization track on Economics and Technology applied to Cultural Heritage, that gives students with a background in the Social Sciences the opportunity to acquire skills that will be useful in developing careers in this field, training among others in economics, law and management of the arts, art and architecture in Venice and world heritage sites.
