Official Master's Degree in Regional and Population Studies
The master's degree in Regional and Population Studies offers the chance to choose between two specialisations of great social importance: regional planning on the one hand and demography on the other. This master's degree leads on to our PhD degrees, of which both Demography and Geography have received Awards for Excellence from the Spanish Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport.
Students can also carry out work placements in a wide range of private companies and public bodies, and attend workshops, and they are required to write a master's dissertation demonstrating excellence in research. In the case of the specialisation in Regional Planning, the syllabus includes the possibility of carrying out fieldwork over several days, on which the content and assessment of many modules are then based.
The official master's Degree in Regional and Population Studies trains specialists in different levels of regional planning and management and, in the case of the specialisation in Regional Planning, in economic development and resource management in local authorities. The specialisation in Demography is aimed at those wishing to work in university research and teaching or in other research bodies, or as experts in demographic and statistical tools in public administration.
Classes are taught in the afternoons, at the Department of Geography of the Faculty of Philosophy and Arts (Land Use Planning track) and at the Centre for Demographic Studies (Demography track).
