Masters in Educational Sciences (MESc)

Message from the program coordinator

The MESc aims to be a model in higher education institutions, ensuring a flexible, practical and competence-based curriculum. Working towards these purposes presents a qualified and motivated teaching and non-teaching staff, always ready to help when needed. This degree covers topics and highly relevant issues for the understanding of social and educational processes in advanced modernity, in a logic of a valued and complementary specialization to the training previously developed. On the other hand, the pedagogical and research environment involves directly the students, promoting their innovation, reflection, autonomy and the improvement of both technical and transversal competences that respond to the interdisciplinary exchange required nowadays. If you are looking for an updated and excellent training opportunity, grab the challenge of studying with us and of becoming more enriched both personally and professionally!
