Meet Our Staff
Letter from the Dean
Welcome to the School of Education and Psychology at the University of Navarra.
Since its creation, the University has been mindful of the concerns of the society to which it belongs, and has sought to repay society with the teaching, research and care work of those involved in this project. The School of Education and Psychology is no stranger to this mission. It has a passion for the freedom and responsibility that form the underlying principles of academic and professional life, from research work to social activity.
The School's mission is to educate and train the individuals who will shape the future, inspired by the ideals that the University of Navarra wishes to convey: education in critical thinking that allows all individuals to freely form their own opinions and beliefs in a climate of pluralism and truth-seeking.
The new School of Education and Psychology is made up of more than 600 members, including teaching staff, administrative and service personnel, and students. All our full-time faculty members have doctoral degrees and are committed to developing knowledge in education and psychology, and transforming society. Moreover, a large percentage have been accredited by ANECA as professors and full professors. Thus, they are highly effective teachers with the ability to conduct high-quality research. This has resulted in publications such as the journal Estudios sobre Educación, which has been indexed in major academic databases, especially Thomson Reuters Web of Science / Social Sciences Citation Index (United States), JCR and SCOPUS - Elsevier (the Netherlands), since 2007.
Over the past 40 years, first as the Department of Education and now as the School of Education and Psychology, numerous families have entrusted us with the university education of their children. That trust led to the launch of the degrees in Education, Early Childhood Education, Primary Teaching and, starting in the 2014-2015 academic year, the Degree in Psychology, which form part of a new School, created with this same desire for social service and contribution to society.
In addition to the undergraduate degree programs, the School offers two master's degree programs: the Master's Degree in Teaching and the Master's Degree in Educational and Psychological Intervention. These master's degrees are complemented by the Doctoral Degree in Education, which forms part of the University of Navarra Doctoral School. The first doctoral thesis in Education was defended in 1972. Since then, doctoral theses on the highly diverse topics that make up the field of education, underpinned by the different research projects that are conducted, have been defended. From the very start, the research conducted at the School of Education and Psychology has addressed the most in-depth issues, and has been committed to its international dimension through the training of doctoral students from Europe, Asia, the Americas and Africa.
It is impossible to sum up in a few lines the quality and variety of the initiatives that are undertaken at the School. This presentation is simply intended as an invitation to visit our portal and learn more firsthand about what this center has accomplished in its nearly 40 years of history.
You are very welcome to join us.
