The Master's Course has five specialities:
Module II, Human and Social Sciences, is focussed on the two teaching specialities available to students according to their prior studies. These specialities are History and Geography on the one hand and Philosophy on the other. Both cases intend to analyse the educational value of these disciplines, whilst introducing resources and techniques for learning and teaching them, handling resources and information technologies and picking up the necessary skills to write an academic programme. Students are introduced to identifying teaching-learning problems and, as a complement to what they have seen in module I, this module aims to look in greater depth at "Content and Language Integrated Learning" (CLIL).
Language and Literature Speciality
In Module III, Language and Literature, the focus is on the Spanish Language and Literature and Latin and Greek teaching specialities. Both cases intend to analyse the educational value of these disciplines, whilst introducing resources and techniques for learning and teaching them, handling resources and information technologies and picking up the necessary skills to write an academic programme. Finally, the module works on basic skills related to research and professional development.
In Module IV, Experimental and Natural Sciences, the focus is on the academic aspects of three of the secondary teaching specialities (Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry and Biology and Geology). In addition to analysing the educational value of the disciplines, this module intends to look in depth at resources and techniques for learning and teaching them, particularly the experience of working in a laboratory, knowledge of the curricula, handling resources and information technologies, and picking up skills required to write an academic programme. In addition, students are introduced to identifying teaching-learning problems and working on basic skills related to research and professional development, plus the "Content and Language Integrated Learning" subject (CLIL) that might subsequently become the teaching context for their future teaching in Education.
Module V. Language Teaching, given in Spanish and English, provides students with knowledge of applied linguistics required by language teachers, the history and developments of language teaching, within the Common European Framework of Reference guidelines, paying close attention to teaching practice and research in the classroom. .
This Module pays close attention to skills training on giving classes in compulsory secondary education, designing educational activities, analysing teaching practice and the principles behind assessment in the foreign language area.
After providing basic training on the process of acquiring and learning languages in general, and the relevance of English as an international communication language, this Module focuses on teaching in a school context, considering how to develop the four basic skills (oral and written comprehension, oral and written expression), plus grammar and vocabulary. At the same time, it provides students with skills to design educational activities, programme contents and assess how the different facets of the language are being learnt.
It introduces the "Content and Language Integrated Learning" subject (CLIL) that might subsequently become the teaching context for their future teaching in Education.
Module VI. Educational Guidance, intended fundamentally for educators, psychologists and teaching graduates (infant and primary), aims to find out about the processes and resources available to prevent problems involving learning, cohabitation, assessment issues and academic and careers guidance. Students are introduced to communication techniques within the guidance processes.
International Baccalaureate (IB)
IB education is changing paradigms whilst challenging new generations of educators to step away from traditional teaching, leading them towards more holistic education that encompasses all dimensions of a person. This is the education that 21st century students are crying out for.
What is the IB teaching-learning certificate?
This certificate endorses students' skills concerning IB teaching-learning methodology, based on exchanging questions, practical work and developing thinking. This form of education gives young people lifelong learning skills, to work independently and alongside other people.
Who can choose to take this certificate?
All students on the master's degree course, following any specialty.
What is it used for?
Students earning this certificate will become part of the International Baccalaureate community, opening doors to:
Professional development activities such as conferences, workshops and meetings.
Teaching methodologies that provide didactic resources, evaluation tools and pedagogics that encourage students to continue investigating beyond the boundaries of their school.
Seeking employment in over 4500 IB schools throughout the world, in three official languages: Spanish, English and French.

In order to obtain the certificate
Take the Master's degree plus the IB module
Carry out the Practicum in a national or international IB school
The Master's Final Project (MFP) should focus on an IB topic.
IB Level 1 specialisation
The Master's Degree offers Level 1 training accredited by the International Baccalaureate Organisation (www.ibo.org). The training is given online and in campus classes during specialisations plus specific classes for students who wish to obtain the IB certification. It also requires over 500 hours of work placement in schools accredited as national or international IB Centres (with a B2 level). This training does not represent any additional cost for the student.
Once they have graduated, students who have received specific IB training can apply for the IB Certificate. Certificates are issued by the actual International Baccalaureate Organisation (IB) for which students must meet the following conditions:
Register as an IB student by completing the IB form at the start of the Master's Degree.
Attend all IB classes and training activities given within the Master's Degree.
Carry our two work placements (practicum) in national or international (B2 level) IB-accredited centres.
Present a Master's final project related to IB training.
The Master's Degree coordination will provide the IB with a list of students who meet these conditions, guaranteeing that the student has received level 1 training and has attained requirements set by the IB.
From this moment onwards, the student should manage their IB credentials directly with the IB. The certificate costs around $265. Certificate payments will be made directly by the graduate to the International Baccalaureate organisation. The Master's Degree coordination will be available at all times to help any students seeking advice.
Hoy más que nunca los profesores de la enseñanza Primaria y Secundaria deben hacer uso de la creatividad y la innovación para motivar a sus alumnos e inspirar el aprendizaje.
Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) o, lo que es lo mismo, Aprendizaje Integral de Contenidos y Lenguas (AICLE), es el método por el que se aprenden los contenidos de una asignatura en una segunda lengua. Se trata de usar la lengua para aprender mientras se aprende a usar la lengua misma.
En este curso los alumnos del máster se familiarizarán con esta metodología en la Educación Secundaria. Se estudia la base teórica y las razones prácticas que fundamentan la decisión de implementar esta metodología, y aprenderán cómo se implanta un curso con metodología CLIL / AICLE en los distintos contextos españoles.
Con la inclusión de programas de Aprendizaje de Contenidos Integrados en Lengua Extranjera en el sistema educativo español, crece la necesidad de ofrecer un contexto y un entendimiento más amplio de las competencias que se están desarrollando en los alumnos a través de dichos programas.
El curso está diseñado para abarcar los retos y dilemas que plantean estos programas y fomentar tanto la discusión de aspectos teóricos como idear soluciones eficaces que se puedan usar en la práctica"
Degree program quality is guaranteed by the Internal Quality Control Standards (IQCS). IQCS processes provide monitoring to guarantee continuous improvement in degree programs, ensuring that students acquire the knowledge and skills envisaged in the qualification they are taking.
The School Quality Control Committee is responsible for coordinating and monitoring each process. This is made up of one or two representatives from the School's Board of Management, one representative from the University's Quality Assessment and Credentials Committee, teachers, students and teaching support staff. The QCC meets at least 3 times over the academic year.
The results from the different processes for each academic year are compiled and analyzed in the Results Analysis Report. This document is drawn up at the close of each academic year and it lays out proposals to improve the qualification plus the period envisaged to do this and the people in charge of implanting and monitoring it.
