Sociology: Social Transformations and Innovation


Pre-enrolment calendar

The pre-enrolment period opens as of January and closes, at the latest, in September. Each centre and each master's degree can establish their specific periods within this general period.


Even though we are experiencing an exceptional situation caused by the COVID-19 outbreak, the Faculty of Economics and Business will maintain the admissions calendars of the master's degrees for the academic year 2020/21.

The applications are being reviewed and processed as normal. To date there have been no changes to the master's degrees schedule for the 2020/21 academic year.

Should the COVID-19 health emergency force us to make any changes, we will inform you as soon as possible. For more information, please visit the “Information on COVID-19” section of the University of Barcelona webpage.
