Transatlantic Degree Cinema and Language
Start date: Sep 16, 2010,

The University of Messina, the Universidad de Cordoba and Virginia Commonwealth University, founding members of the Centre for Integrative Mediterranean Studies, have established a Transatlantic Degree in Cinema and Language (TDC&L), weaving existing graduate courses in specific areas of expertise at each university into an innovative, interdisciplinary curriculum in cinema studies that explores issues of identity, globalization and intercultural relations. By the end of the grant period 48 students will have spent a full academic year across the Atlantic, taken classes on cinema and media studies in three languages and earned a dual graduate degree that is fully recognized by their home institution as "Transatlantic Degree in Cinema and Language". The project aims to provide students with the opportunity to develop the crucial analytical and communication skills, knowledge base and international experiences needed to pursue a career in the global marketplace. It also intensifies the professional development for consortium faculty through collaboration with transatlantic counterparts in curriculum development and theory.
