Curriculum

The curriculum indicates the subjects for the degree and their nature (basic, required, electives, etc.), the number of credits for each subject, etc. Topics are divided into subjects, which in turn are organized into modules. In addition, it includes practical information for the student's academic life.

Students will acquire the key knowledge required to become primary school teachers. They will learn about the psychological development of children between the ages of 6 and 12, family and social environments, the learning process at this stage of life, the organization of schools and the characteristics of primary schools, in addition to other fundamental aspects of the teaching profession.

This module consists of studying the disciplines that correspond to the primary education stage and includes the strategies needed to teach primary-age children. It is made up of several subjects that develop the skills required for promoting learning in the following areas: Experimental Sciences, Social Sciences, Mathematics, Languages, Physical Education, and Musical, Artistic and Audiovisual Expression. Special attention is paid to the language skills needed to reach level C1 in Spanish and level B1 in a foreign language; students must fulfill these requirements before concluding their degree, in accordance with the legislation governing the Degree in Primary Teaching.

These subjects complement students' theoretical and practical training. They provide in-depth knowledge about specific aspects of primary education and current educational issues. If certain elective subjects are taken, the following may be obtained: Specialization in Dealing with Diversity, Specialization in Language Proficiency in a Foreign Language and the DECA Diploma (a qualification awarded by the Spanish Episcopal Conference that provides students with academic training for teaching religion in schools).

This includes school internships and the Final Year Project. It allows students to integrate and apply the knowledge and skills they have acquired in other modules, and to gradually specialize throughout their Second, Third and Fourth Years. In the case of specialization qualifications, internships will focus on activities that are directly linked to them.
