The Central University, in partnership with Sistemas Humanos - Sistema de Consultoría Sistémica, has a Master's Degree in Intervention in Human Systems, a program that has been endorsed by the Ministry of National Education since 2008. The program offers a postgraduate training in Social Sciences which deals with strengthening competencies for the design of systemic and social constructionist practices that allow effective intervention in diverse contexts (educational, organizational, community and family), emphasizing the development of relational and linguistic competences. It is designed to promote a contextualized reflection with respect to the creation of professional practices that transform the micropolitics of relationships in daily life. Mastery has a differentiating factor in that it focuses on developing an epistemology based on systemic and social constructionist practices, with investigative rigor and with a reflective, transdisciplinary and aesthetic approach to intervention.

Academic information


Train professionals with the ability to build knowledge and design innovative intervention processes with different human systems (educational, organizational, community and family) from a systemic and social constructionist perspective.


The master's degree has a deepening character, which defines its methodology based on the permanent connection between theory and practice and the construction of knowledge as a result of this encounter. Therefore, training is conceived as a process of mutual learning between students and teachers, each with different and equally valuable experiences and expertise. The master's degree has different pedagogical spaces that facilitate the development of the program's own competences. For this it has devices such as: dialogical meetings, seminars, workshops and supervised practices.

Curriculum structure

The master's degree is developed in four levels equivalent to four semesters and is articulated around three closely linked axes:

Axis 1: manage and intervene

This component includes a review of the foundations and recent theoretical developments of the systemic-social constructionist perspective, as well as a dialogue with other social science knowledge, focused on an epistemology of practice.

In this way, in level I, the practices respond to the development of skills specific to the systemic-constructionist professional that are transversal in the interventions with human systems. While in levels II, III and IV, the practices imply a direct commitment of the student to a specific group, where the theory responds to the particularities of the context of action (community, organizational, educational, family, among others). All this process allows and nurtures the training of skills for the design of interventions with different human systems.

Axis 2: manage and investigate

In this component, the construction of local knowledge is privileged around a research-intervention design, which each student structures from the first level to generate transformations in a specific reality. This process corresponds to the work of degree.

Axis 3: flexible component

It corresponds to the elective and deepening seminars offered by the Master's degree and other postgraduate programs of the University, including the Kensington Consultation Center (KCC), a biannual space for reflection and knowledge construction around the work of the professional Systemic-social constructionist with national or international guests.

What does the Master in Intervention in Human Systems offer?

The Master in Intervention in Human Systems has the following differentials:

  • University of first level in quality and trajectory.
  • Modern laboratories and student support areas.
  • Academic and financial flexibility for the benefit of the student.
  • Benefit plan for unicentral family and inter-institutional agreements.
  • Multiple financing systems.

Profile of the applicant

The master's degree is aimed at professionals from different areas of knowledge whose daily work requires interventions with different human systems and want to deepen the systemic and social constructionist perspective to change their practices and create significant transformations.

Graduate profile

The master's degree is aimed at training professionals who reflect on their participation in the consolidation of systemic practices and who expand the disciplinary boundaries of their professional identity. In this way, by working on itself allows the professional to develop more consistent and coherent practices with the contextual needs of the human systems in which it intervenes.

Graduate competencies

Upon completion of the master's degree curriculum, the professional is expected to develop the following competencies:

  • Reflect during the action to restructure interactions and understandings based on results, in order to develop new practices in working with living systems.
  • Design effective, contextual and inclusive interventions that encompass diversity of populations and individuals.
  • Build forms of intervention that take into account social complexity and multiproblem situations.
  • Make contributions to the social sciences, so that the theory becomes a lived practice oriented to sustainability.
  • Respond to the current situation in Colombia, characterized by the breadth, intensity and diversity of expressions of conflict and violence in different social contexts.
