The International Master in Audiovisual and Cinema Studies (IMACS) is a research-oriented graduate degree programme with a focus on film studies and an interdisciplinary outlook.
IMACS is a program offered by the Master Degree in Business, Media And Organizational Communication (Comunicazione per l’Impresa, i Media e le Organizzazioni Complesse- CIMO), curriculum in Media Management.

Specifically, the Media Management syllabus, linked to the Imacs Programme, provides aesthetic, historical, semiotic, economic and strategic, juridical, psychological and anthropological skills dedicated to the design, critique, diagnosis and strategic production in the audiovisual field.
IMACS courses at UCSC cover film history, cross-mediality and storytelling, media pragmatics, cinema and media economics, audiovisual media policies and media anthropology.
The syllabus includes a minimum of one/two courses in English per semester.
