Psychosocial Intervention


The master's degree in Psychosocial Intervention is offered jointly by the University of Barcelona and the University of Girona, and coordinated by the UB. It also boasts the participation of teachers from Rovira i Virgili University.
The master's degree offers a professional pathway, which provides initial exposure to professional practice in psychosocial intervention, and a research pathway, through which students are able to take their first steps in research in this field. Successful completion of the programme also enables students to access doctoral studies.
The course examines the ideas, skills and abilities required to be able to apply psychosocial knowledge and tools to increasing the quality of life and social welfare of individuals, groups and communities in different areas of development and to improving people's relationships with their contexts and social system of reference. This specialized training also fosters the ability to promote dynamics of social change in the frameworks of social welfare and judicial systems in democratic states and societies and the services and communities within these systems.

Learning objectives

The master's degree in Psychosocial Intervention is designed to train professionals skilled in psychosocial intervention or basic and applied social psychology research. The course is structured around an overtly psychosocial approach to the analysis of society and community, enabling students to develop and consolidate a specialization in social psychology. It also provides the specific, systematically structured training that has long been called for by psychologists, social policymakers and social organizations operating in the field of social intervention. Finally, the course fosters the continued acquisition of the scientific and technical knowledge that forms the basis of social psychology, in particular psychosocial intervention, and contributes to consolidating the status of this field and all those involved in psychosocial intervention and research.
