Methodology

Students will develop their knowledge of the different issues covered in the academic program by means of sessions where key concepts are presented and explained. Different methodologies such as lectures, classroom activities, statistical training, seminars, oral presentations and report preparation will be used. Students will acquire skills in experimental design, data analysis and codification and the use of statistical programs helpful to interpret research results. They will also become familiar with the main research tools used in each of the different areas featured in the academic program.

Assessment

Evaluation will be carried out by different means, always based on the criteria used by the teaching staff responsible for the course. These are some of the procedures that could be used: weekly homework assignments, oral presentations, comments on compulsory readings, written tests on topics dealt with in lectures and seminars and brief research papers.

In order to complete the MA program the student has to write and defend a Master's thesis which will be supervised by a member of the teaching staff.
