Why in Parma?

The degree course in History and critic of arts and performance gives an in-depth knowledge of the history of figurative and performing arts, the performing arts and cinema, and the critical framework necessary for the study and research activities preliminary to any intervention for the protection and promotion of museum collections and image archives.

Thanks to a long and consolidated tradition of studies on a national and international level, which is the result of a dense network of relationships established over time, the course manages to combine theory and history in the fields of medieval, modern and contemporary art, cinema and theatre.

Students will be able to maintain a direct relationship with their lecturers.


Not mandatory.

After graduation

Graduates will work in professions related to the specific historical-artistic sector, in particular in the fields of curatorship and museology, cultural services and communication in all their forms, with positions of responsibility in the fields of knowledge, cataloguing, study, protection and recovery of cultural heritage.

The LM/89 degree allows students to work in various professional contexts, both public and private, in institutions such as museums, cultural centres, foundations, public and private organisations and institutions, both Italian and foreign. The course prepares for the profession of art historian, editor of technical texts, archivist, librarian, museum curator and conservator, art director, gallery owner.
