Master programs and courses in cultural studies are programs dedicated to graduates with bachelor's or master's degree or young professionals who wish to have a career path for example in communication of the culture, in the enhancement of artistic heritage rather than more traditional roles as expert on books and authors, professor of history and traditions of cultures and languages. Boys and girls should already possess a strong cultural base to become students of these master programs: then the specific skills acquired during class will make them men and women of success in the cultural world.
Graduates of these master programs in cultural studies can find employment in the cultural industry as an expert in event management, cultural heritage or consultant in marketing and communications, expert of social integration among different cultures, up to more classical roles such as librarians and historians.
