Practicum

Practicum: practicas + trabajo de fin de master

This module is interdisciplinary in nature and seeks to put master's degree students in contact with the reality of the educational system and give them firsthand experience with different aspects of psycho-pedagogical intervention: assessment and diagnosis (collecting information from the family, from the student, evaluation of the diagnostic process), intervention programs, school integration, case analysis.

Internships for the Official Master's Degree in Educational and Psychological Intervention will be done at various Spanish, European and American schools with which the Department of Education‑ at the School of Humanities and Social Sciences has signed partnership agreements.

Internships are an eminently practical educational activity that enable master's degree students to be truly immersed in the daily work of educational intervention.
