Introduction

In 2013-2014 a new study plan for this master's degree has been put in place, which offers several advantages over the previous one. Among the strengths of this new version of the master's degree are:

  • New modules designed taking into account the first batch of new students from the university's bachelor's degree programmes,
  • elimination of itineraries and specialisations,
  • removal of overlaps with modules of other master's degrees,
  • teaching in English,
  • theory concentrated in the first semester, which means that the second semester is totally free for work on the research paper. This allows study periods that can be spent outside the UAB's area of influence.
Those interested in enrolling in this master's degree can apply for one of the grants offered by the Catalunya-La Pedrera Foundation for academic year 2017-18, for graduates enrolling in master's degrees.
