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.

This module includes subjects that provide students with a comprehensive understanding of the multifaceted reality of education, without which they could not practice their profession in a discerning manner. The educational task is viewed theoretically from various complementary perspectives, although some subjects also deal with topics that are directly related to educational practice. This module also includes methodological disciplines, whose role is to prepare students for research, diagnosis and assessment, skills they will require regardless of their future professional career. Most of the subjects included in this module are undertaken during the first two years of the study program.

This second module is more synthetic in nature and focuses directly on the various forms of educational activity: teaching, guidance, organization and management of centers, special education and socio-educational intervention. It aims to provide students with the key knowledge, skills and tools required to work in each of these five areas of activity. Most of the subjects included in this module are undertaken during the last two years of the study program.

This module is made up of elective subjects. Its objective is to complement the basic training that students receive, as well as provide them with more in-depth knowledge about certain aspects and areas of educational activity. Special importance is given to the field of non-formal education in order to enable students to meet the educational challenges that arise in society. The subjects vary depending on the gaps identified in students' training and are adapted to the demands of the labor market. It is possible to study 12 ECTS credits in Teaching Catholicism and obtain the DECA Diploma, a qualification awarded by the Spanish Episcopal Conference that provides students with academic training for teaching religion in schools. Students will take elective subjects primarily during the last two years of their study program.

The fourth module consists of the Practicum and Final Year Project. Both subjects are designed to be closely linked to the remaining elements of the curriculum. Therefore, although most of them will be carried out in the final stages of the study program, students are expected to undertake internships starting in their Second Year, so they can relate and apply the knowledge and skills they have acquired. The Final Year Project should be related to the type of internship undertaken by students to ensure that they acquire more in-depth, specialized training.
