Social and Educational Action


Activity in group - Master

The master’s degree in Social and Educational Action is intended for students with interests that reach between the social and educational settings, providing them with the means to innovate and broaden their knowledge through the practical application of research. Students will acquire a general competence in planning, research, assessment and advisory work in contexts of socioeducational vulnerability. Since this degree has a specific focus on research, it provides students with the training to access the corresponding doctoral programme.
The master's degree examines current social and educational context and seeks to respond innovatively, fairly and equitably to the various problems it presents. Therefore, one of the main objectives is for students to develop competences to address new and emerging problems and situations in at-risk populations and groups, through research, action, innovation and change.
The master's degree prepares students to work in a broad range of professional areas (including social work, education and community health) and provides in-depth training for tasks in research, management, planning, assessment, consultancy and supervision.
The master's degree is aimed at university graduates in the field of education (social education, pedagogy, early childhood education, primary education, educational psychology and equivalent degrees) or in the social sciences (social work, nursing, social psychology, sociology, anthropology and equivalent degrees), as well as other graduates with proven professional experience in the education or social sector.
