Bachelor's degree in Education Studies

The bachelor's degree in Education Studies provides the necessary theoretical, professional and practical training for analysing, intervening in and evaluating educational systems and processes, in the organisation and administration of the educational system, and in formal and non-formal educational institutions and agencies.

The majority of students (90%) of the Bachelor's Degree in Education Studies enter the labour market, perfectly capable of putting their leadership and coordination skills to use in education and training activities, and in producing and managing educational materials and resources.

This degree offers students the possibility of doing two Practicums, one compulsory and one optional, with the aim of acquiring a greater amount of experience in the labour market before completing their studies.

Programmes in Education Studies have consolidated themselves in the past few years thanks to the establishment of the Lifelong Learning concept, which has broadened both its field of scientific study and of professional action.
