Photography and Audiovisual

TAUGHT IN ITALIAN ❯

Your vision of the world

 

 

You will discover how to express your creativity, learning many techniques and enhancing your curiosity to get to know and tell the world around you: you will gain an attentive and personal view, which will give you the opportunity to emerge in the field of the contemporary image.

 

The photographer becomes an artist when he is creative, knows the techniques and adopts a multidisciplinary approach: a professional able to use his/her talent and operate dynamically in the world of image, exploring areas such as reportage, advertising and fashion photography, photo book, fine art, video and multimedia.

The overproduction of images has redefined the role of photography and of the photographer, who must constantly evolve, acquiring an open and contemporary vision.

RUFA Bachelor of Arts in Photography and Audiovisual, also thanks to the third year Masterclass coordinated by Contrasto -a leading agency in the field of art photography, aims to guide the student through a highly professional curriculum that combines the focus on reportage and on art research. Putting into practice the skills acquired during the three years, students will have the opportunity to develop and express a personal point of view regarding the reality that surrounds them.

Led by professional lecturers in the fields of Art, Design, Communication and Media Art, graduates from RUFA Bachelor of Arts in Photography and Audiovisual acquire the ability to give value to an idea, transforming it into a successful project, capable of demonstrating expertise and artistic personality with the opportunity to emerge in the international scene.
