The International Research Doctorate in Historical, Artistic and Audiovisual Studies is the third level of an educational path, starting from the Bachelor Degree in DAMS (3 years) and the Master Degree in Audiovisual Heritage and New Media Sciences (2 years); this Ph.D. represents a point of departure towards academic research. The specialistic research in the field of Audiovisuals (cinema, TV, photography, new media) is a specific curriculum that runs parallel to the one which educates Art History experts (from the Middle Age to contemporary times). The Ph.D. improves the competences in the use of traditional educational methods, its program is meant to support the acquisition of new competences, such as the study of the conservation and restoration of works of art, film and audiovisual and musical materials; the study of art, film, musical and audiovisual institutions; the theory and practice of production and post-production; the organization and the management of art, film, music and audiovisual archives; the management of film, music and audiovisual events; the theory, methodology and critical analysis of artworks and of film, music and audiovisual works. Ph.D. students can rely on research contents and methodologies of international level, thanks to the several occasions of exchange and seminar formation throughout the 3 years of course, as well as to an intense editorial activity; in fact, volumes, series and scientific magazines concerning the wide field of audiovisual analysis and media studies are published under the scientific supervision of DAMS professors and researchers, which investigate the field from multiple disciplinary perspectives. The activities of research training guarantee, through an intense seminar program, allow Ph.D. candidates to accomplish innovative scientific competences that can be integrated in the academic field, research centers, private or public institutions of the sector, as well as in the context of the profiles requested by the cultural industry and the museum and archiving system.

Specialisation courses are high education post-graduate courses whose aim is to increase professional know how in a certain area of expertise. These courses have a more limited duration than a Master’s program and do not have a recognized certification. At the end of the course the students receive a participation certificate.

To access an Specialisation Course a University degree or proof of experience in the branch is required.


Master’s programs are educational post-graduation experiences that aim to train highly specialised professional persons characterised by transversal competencies.

The educational offer of Master’s programs is structured in I and II level Masters.

To apply to a First Level Master’s Program the student must have finished the Undergraduate program (3 years). The Second Level Master’s Program is only accessible to students who have finished the 5 years course of their Bachelor and Master Degree.

With a Master of Arts Degree, the students can access both first and second level Master’s programs.


Research Grants are a tool used to finance a contract of collaboration for research projects and they are assigned after a competition announcement.


Our educational programs include courses designed for cultural promotion as well as professional development (permanent and recurring education courses, cultural activities for adults, courses of preparation for public tenders and state exams for professional certification, professional development programs for employees). While not directly resulting in an official degree, some programs can provide for credits that might be applied to Bachelor or Master Degrees. Candidates may take part in these courses also without possessing an academic degree. Courses that qualify for University level credit require a Secondary School diploma or recognized equivalent qualification from a foreign country.


Not only does the University offer a high level of Undergraduate, Graduate and research activities, it is committed to helping the students find a job after their graduation. For such reason, the University has activated the Career Center, offering multiple job opportunities.

This service is also active in Gorizia, and helps students/graduates and companies of the territory to encounter, through the service of research of junior/senior graduates profiles; opportunities of dialogue and meeting between businesses and students, such as “I Mercoledì del Placement” and the “Career Day Uniud” (held each year in February); european, national or regional fund researches for grant-assisted jobs, meant to introduce graduates in the job market. The service is free and available on Facebook.

The University also promotes the spin-off project, like a professional opportunity for graduates and PhDs; it is also a tool to strengthen the spread of corporate culture between researchers and academic technicians.

In order to help students find jobs in local and international contexts, the University of Udine has subscribed to the ALMALAUREA Project. Other job offers can be also found on the University E-Magazine.
