Research and intervention in Education and Training

Introduction

This degree aims to educate young people in order to participate proactively in the fields of education and training. These fields are considered in a vast sense, including not only school-context educational phenomena, but also non-formal ones, as well as development and learning processes in work contexts.

This is a degree which promotes the understanding of the complexity of education and training phenomena, seeking for students to develop competences that allow them to perform in various modalities of education and training not only within the educational system, but also in cultural, social, welfare, economic, justice and health-related organisations.

So it is about providing an education with a great scope of activity, while at the same time addressing specific aspects to intervene in the above-mentioned fields, with different publics – children, young people, adults and elderly people.

This Bachelor Programme is also meant for international students.
