Main focus

; The main objective of this master’s programme is to foster in students the knowledge and skills required to promote gender equality, respect for minorities, and a positive approach to the differences between people, as well as the promotion of peace and democratic values. Accordingly, students will learn how to analyse and critically compare the theories and current models used in the psychology of social intervention. The programme will also train students to apply their knowledge of socio-psychological processes to the causes of social problems (immigration, prejudice, inequality, violence, road safety, etc.). Finally, students will learn how to critically analyse scientific literature and acquire practical knowledge in research techniques, production of hypotheses, and the interpretation of research results.


Students that have completed the second cycle have the following competencies: – Have demonstrated knowledge and understanding that is founded upon a basis or opportunity for originality in developing and/or applying ideas, often within a research context. – Can apply their acquired knowledge and understanding, and problem solving abilities in new or unfamiliar environments within broader (or multidisciplinary) contexts related to their field of study. – Have the ability to integrate knowledge and handle complexity, and formulate judgments with incomplete or limited information, but that include reflecting on social and ethical responsibilities linked to the application of their knowledge and judgments. – Can communicate their conclusions, and the knowledge and rationale underpinning these, to specialist and non-specialist audiences clearly and unambiguously. – Have the learning skills to allow them to continue to study in a manner that may be largely self-directed or autonomous.
