goals

The training offered during the first year is aimed at acquiring the basic skills of the degree. It consists of two common and compulsory modules for all students of the University Master's Degree. In the second year, two alternative itineraries are offered: "Communication, Social Change and Development", aimed at training graduates who know how to use the knowledge and methods of social communication in processes of change and social development; and "Applied Communicology", which is a way to apply communication knowledge in the performance of groups, organizations, institutions and societies.

Recipients

The variety of fields in which Social Communication specialists can carry out their activities makes it convenient to open Postgraduate studies in Social Communication to all the students who have at least a Bachelor's degree (in any of the branches of knowledge). To make this incorporation possible, the program takes into account the nature of the studies that have previously been completed.

Why study this master?

Communication occupies a strategic position in most social activities. The functions that “specialists in Social Communication” can perform are diversified and revalued both by the transformation of market demands and by social changes.

Although the experts in Social Communication have different origins, they share three conditions that identify them in the workplace: they are hired to use information where intervention was once predominant; in their daily work they are bound to break the curricular schemes with which they left their faculties; and finally, the profile of these professionals requires another way of combining theoretical performance with practice.
