This is one of the few master's degrees in Spain to specifically address the subject of youth, and the only course with a solid foundation of seven successful previous editions and a team of expert researchers, teachers and professionals. The objective is to provide training in the fields of research, intervention and public policies for young people. The course is both interuniversity (taught at the UdG, UB, UAB, UdL, URV and UPF) and interdisciplinary (covering sociology, anthropology, education and communication sciences, among other subjects).
It focuses on both professional skills and research and combines theoretical training with practical experience, excursions, case studies, a foreign study trip, and a range of other activities. Students will learn about the analysis, design, management and assessment of youth policies, programmes, centres and services; direct interventions with young people; and academic research in these areas.

The master's degree prepares students for careers as youth specialists, facilitators, heads of youth programmes and centres, directors and coordinators of youth institutions and services, intercultural mediators, conflict managers, youth counsellors and researchers in diverse issues affecting young people.
