Its primary goal is to provide the most up-to-date research tools for each subject area, to deal with the complexity of the reality we live in. This goal will be achieved through a specialist insight of the content and knowledge already possessed as well as by fostering the aptitude for analysis and research. The skills acquired in these two years can be used in research, publishing, libraries, poly-functional centres, organization and cultural activities at public and private companies and organizations and in the field of creative activities for the social and advertising purposes.
