Interdepartmental Programmes

The Department also contributes to three interdisciplinary study programmes menaged by other Departments.

Undergraduate study programme in Digital Humanities

The study programme in Digital Humanities is managed by the Department of Phylology, Literature and Linguistics. Started in 2002 and still unique in Italy, the course stems from an interdisciplinary cultural project between the former Faculty of Literature and Philosophy and the former Faculty of Mathematical, Physical and Natural Sciences.

On the one hand, students acquire a solid basic culture in the literary, linguistic, philological, historical, geographical and artistic fields, on the other hand they learn to master the tools and technologies for the computer processing of languages, texts, images and in general cultural content. Some relevant professional profiles are for example those of Content Manager and Web Developer or that of Language Technologist.

Graduate study programme in Digital Humanities

The Master study programme in Digital Humanities is managed by the Department of Phylology, Literature and Linguistics. The course aims to facilitate as much as possible the access of students who have received undergraduated training in computer science or humanities, while maintaining an adequate level of specialization, closely linked to existing research activities at the departments of the University of Pisa and other research centers in the local area.

In order to guide students, the master’s learning path is organized into four training courses, which correspond to well-characterized and emerging professional figures: Electronic publishing; Graphics, Interactivity, Virtual Environments; Knowledge Management; and Language Technologies.

Graduate study programme in Cybersecurity

The Master study programme in Cybersecurity is managed by the Department of Information Engineering and is entirely held in English. The course has been activated in the A.Y. 2020/21 to respond to the growing need for specialists with high scientific and technological skills in the field of cybersecurity. To this end, it provides its graduates with a deep knowledge of the scientific foundations, methodologies and technologies of the territory, which allows them to contribute to the advancement of knowledge and to be able to deal with cybersecurity issues in the most diverse application areas.

The main professional figures of reference are those of Designer of secure IT systems and applications, IT Security Researcher, and IT Security Specialist.
