"Only those who learn well can teach well."

Are you critical with traditional teaching models? The UAB master's degree is based on the innovation and latest upgrades made in theoretical education models. 

Are you determined to graduate after fully preparing to become a teacher? The practical seminars will include lecturers with years of experience in secondary school centres who will guide you in the design of the teaching unit you will be giving with the help of one of the centre's supervisors.

This master's degree is designed around the practical sessions and therefore fosters a fertile dialogue between the theoretical lectures at the Faculty of Education and their practical applications in education centres. 

Who can enrol in this programme? All university graduates holding three-year or four-year degrees.

The specialisations offered from 2019 to 2022 are: Geography and History, Biology and Geology, Physics and Chemistry, Catalan and Spanish Language and Literature, Educational Guidance, English and French (this specialisation is exclusive to Catalonia). In the 2020/21 academic year students will also be able to choose the specialisation in Music.

Career options

This Master's degree must be completed by those wishing to work as teachers in the different levels of secondary education and replaces the courses offered until now (CAP and CCP). Therefore, it is the only way to qualify as a secondary education teacher both in state-run and private schools.

The main objective of this Master's degree is to train students as secondary education teachers, i.e. professionals equipped to teach the subjects pertaining to their discipline, be that in the fields of science, social sciences, languages or the humanities, helping them acquire the skills needed to educate and tutor learners.
