Enogastronomic journalism

The professional master course in enogastronomic journalism is born out of the partnership between the international magazine So Wine So Food and IUL online university.

The course aims to provide technical-scientific competences relating to the organoleptic quality of products. These competences are based on the techniques and technologies for the transformation of enological and food products. The study path will be completed with theoretical and practical in-depths, carried out through internships, focused on specific aspects of restoration and reception. Part of the course is also dedicated to the acquisition of writing and comprehension abilities to provide full familiarity with the production and interpretation of texts of different styles for various kinds of public.

The course is addressed to everyone and in particular to professionals holding a Bachelor’s degree, wishing to acquire advanced training in enogastronomic journalism. The minimum educational requirement is a Bachelor’s degree or equivalent title. The minimum number of students for course activation is 8.
