The Department of Humanities at the University of Ferrara offers a rich and well-articulated choice of courses aimed at studying and enriching artistic, archival, and museal heritage. These courses range across all levels of undergraduate and postgraduate studies – through BA and MA degrees, and PhDs – providing strong integration between these layers of academic study.
The student in CULTURAL ROUTE MANAGING follows an educational pathway that leads to a specific professional role in destination managing and planning. This is a professional figure with an innovative profile which, thanks to the acquisition of theoretical knowledge and operational competences in the sectors of tourism and cultural activities, is able to competently perform roles dedicated to the promotion of local territories and related organisational and entrepreneurial activities. The successful graduate should also be competent in planning cultural and touristic itineraries that favour less well-explored destinations, working fruitfully with institutions in these less well-explored locations; working in cultural institutions as well as in private companies; and making competent use of the latest digital innovations for the valorisation and communication of cultural heritage. The hope is that the graduate can help to redefine the culture of travel by pushing towards a model of tourism that rediscovers the most hidden and characteristic territorial excellences.

The Master’s Degree in MEDIEVAL AND RENAISSANCE CULTURES AND TRADITIONS offers a unique educational pathway for both Italy and abroad. The study of the literary, historical, and artistic output of Ferrara – a small city yet one of Europe’s greatest centres of Renaissance culture and art – is set against the backdrop of Italian and European cultural history. This master’s degree is an ideal choice for those who want to acquire a firm grounding in the humanities, enriched by numerous collaborative relationships with local cultural institutions (libraries, museums, archives, etc.), which guarantees important professional experience through high-profile internships and apprenticeships. Great importance has also been given to international relations, through Erasmus projects and other specific programmes.
The master’s in “Archivistics, Diplomatics and Palaeography” proffers a specialised education based on a functional synergy between theoretical lessons and practical exercises. It aims at educating professionals in the strategic sectors of the protection, promotion, and valorisation of archival and library heritage.
