Bachelor's Degree in Social Education

Solidarity, inclusion, human rights, education and social awareness are fundamental concepts in the Social Education field. Education is not only the acquisition of theoretical knowledge, but the non-formal education aspect is equally important, as it helps individuals to develop competences and intellectual and moral skills.

The Bachelor’s Degree in Social Education will teach students to analyse, assess and design social-educational intervention processes in different contexts, for different groups or individuals, paying special attention to the most underprivileged people or to those who are at risk of social exclusion. Students will also acquire the necessary tools to improve the lives of the people and groups who need it the most.

Additionally, in the third and fourth year, students will participate first-hand in educational projects at various centres, foundations and associations through the mandatory internships. Students will be able to choose between two minors or specialisations: Social Inclusion or Social Engagement and Community Work.
