The documents preserved in archives are full of stories that, told well, will allow archiving professionals to launch high-impact campaigns to disseminate the historical and documentary heritage of today's society.

The Course on Communication in Archives: the Strategy of Storytelling, which is breaking new ground in university education in Spain and Ibero-America, equips students with competences in cultural communication and dissemination of the documentary heritage that involve storytelling through various narrative structures. 

Storytelling is an ancient but effective tool. We humans have passed on knowledge through stories ever since we lived in caves. In present-day society, this transfer is carried out using all sorts of media: films, books, advertisements, exhibitions, TV programmes, mobile apps, etc. This course focuses on transmedia narratives, together with gamification and branding. 

Career opportunities

- Successful students will have the necessary tools to be able to undertake communication and dissemination tasks in the areas of archiving institutions and document management companies. They will also have the opportunity to enter a professional career as an independent expert in the document management and heritage sector.
