Main focus

; Graduates of this master’s programme will have an in-depth understanding of the theoretical foundations and of the social policy programmes in European, national, and autonomic contexts. They will be able to analyse multicultural phenomena in today’s world as reflected in socioeducational spaces and processes. Graduates will be capable of identifying the sense of group membership and of collective and individual identity as well as the civil, political, and social rights of citizens. They will be able to design research programmes as well as socioeducational interventions from the perspective of lifelong learning, addictions and drug dependencies, women as agents of social and educational change, and family and school violence. Finally, graduates will know how to develop socioeducational programmes oriented towards young people, based on the resources of the city as an educational space.


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.
