Objectives and admission

Learning objectives:
The general objective of this master's is to further study a section of criminal, political and sociological knowledge that has been deeply forgotten by traditional science, such as the field of discipline, punishment and, more specifically, that related to the deprivation of personal liberty. Traditionally, hegemonic knowledge has precisely not paid deep attention to the dimension that qualifies criminal law itself, such as the scope of punishment. Criminal law is called like this precisely because of the punitive dimension that characterizes it; however, this same dimension has not received the scientific and academic attention it deserves. Therefore, the aim of this master's degree is to introduce students to all those areas that constitute the interstices of the problem of punishment and that have a deep interdisciplinary dimension that affects the subjectivity of both those who live in the corresponding institutions as people deprived of their personal freedom, as well as those in charge of managing and governing those institutions.

Recommended applicant profiles and admission requirements:
The master's degree is aimed at graduate students from
degrees such as law, psychology, sociology, philosophy, political and administrative sciences, anthropology, communication sciences, criminology, economics, history, forensic sciences, medicine, etc.
In particular, participation in the course for penal system operators in the broad sense of the expression will be valued, as well as candidates involved in national and international institutions and organizations for the protection of human rights.

Admission for applicants not holding a degree qualification:
Students who are not university graduates may be admitted on these courses. These students will be eligible for a university extension course certificate.Information regarding the entry requirements in this case can be obtained from the course coordinators.
