The subject of the Academic Master programme “Learning and Communication in Multilingual and Multicultural Contexts” is the study of multilingualism and multiculturalism and the issues raised by these themes in a society which is today characterized more and more by mobility, migration and diversity. In particular, it focuses on issues of linguistic and cultural diversity which arise among other things in the fields of education, communication and in different institutional and professional contexts.
