Prospective students

Our study programs

Our range of official undergraduate degree programs is divided into two key areas: study programs in the field of Education and study programs in the Humanities.

In the area of Education we aim to combine the applied nature of the study programs with in-depth knowledge of the field of education. Thus, the Degree in Education and the potential to combine this in a double degree with Early Childhood Education or Primary Teaching significantly enhance the students' preparation. In the area of the Humanities there are three basic disciplines with an interdisciplinary vision: History, Philosophy and Spanish Philology. In order to offer study programs in the field of the Humanities with an applied nature, we have the Degree in Humanities and the double degrees in History, Philosophy and Spanish Philology with Journalism, Audiovisual Communication or Law.

Our range of master's degree programs is divided into programs oriented towards professional practice and programs oriented towards research. The professional area focuses on the field of education: Educational and Psychological Intervention, Secondary School Teaching and Spanish Teaching. The research area combines the depth and interdisciplinarity of the range: Philosophy, Contemporary Studies.

Our open and interdisciplinary nature puts us in an optimum position to offer other types of study programs that without doubt give the School of Humanities and Social Sciences a more global character: bachelor and master's programs in the Liberal Arts, Bridge Programs, Spanish Teaching, etc.

How to apply to study at the University

Given the wide range and number of university programs currently available, you should bear in mind that the university where you earn your degree will make a difference on your professional résumé.

In the 2009-2010 academic year, the University of Navarra introduced its degrees adapted to the European Higher Education Area (the Bologna Process). 

Each degree program consists of 240 ECTS credits (four years), distributed across the following subject types:

  • Basic subjects

  • Required subjects for each degree

  • Elective subjects

  • Internships

  • Final Year Project

The credits in each subject are an indication of the level of personal effort considered necessary to pass it. Each credit is equivalent to about 25-30 hours of work by students.

From Second Year onwards, enrollment can range from a minimum of 40 ECTS credits to a maximum of 78 ECTS credits.

Those with required subjects that they have not yet passed must first enroll for these subjects.

The double degrees offered by the University of Navarra make it possible to complete two degrees at the same time over a period of five or six years.

This is made possible through the application of assimilations between the two degrees in some subjects, the use of interchangeable elective credits between Schools, and the use of elective credits applied reciprocally from degree to degree.

El alumno puede escoger como asignatura optativa cualquier asignatura ofertada por la Facultad de Filosofía y Letras. Para facilitar la elección de optativas se han configurado una serie de itinerarios de especialización que siguen dos ramas.

Si el alumno tiene interés en alguna asignatura asociada especificamente a un itinerario no es imprescindible que lo curse integramente. Puede escoger libremente esas asignaturas en su elección de optativas.

Students can choose any of the subjects offered by the School of Humanities and Social Sciences as an elective subject. In order to help students choose elective subjects, a series of specialization pathways have been created. These follow two branches.

If students are interested in a subject that is specifically associated with a pathway, they do not have to complete it fully. They can choose these subjects freely when selecting their elective subjects.

Up to now, there have been two levels of undergraduate degrees: diploma programs and licentiate degrees. From the 2009-2010 academic year onwards, university degrees started to be taught on a single levelthe undergraduate degree. In other words, the current concepts of diploma program and licentiate degree were discontinued at the School, although the academic validity of these qualifications remains.

Students who started their degree before the adaptation to the European Higher Education Area (i.e., the former system) continue with the same academic regulations, since the plans will be phased out on a yearly basis. The qualification obtained will grant all of the academic and professional validity currently established for each of them.
