Graduate profile

We understand the graduate as a socio-cultural innovator, a manager of processes that point to the good life in the cultural field, a systematizer of experiences, a practitioner of the dialogue of knowledge and a political agent.

The great sub-fields that articulate the construction of the Master's Degree are: a) the cultural, b) the 'diverse life', c) the knowledge of the 'world of life' (education), d) the ways of sharing the knowledge (communication) e) "good living" with others (the political). Understanding that the previous subfields are the foundation of the training field (CEC), the "extended capacities" acquired by the students in the Master's program are proposed below.

We understand these capabilities as "knowledge, skills and abilities that a person develops to understand, transform and participate in the world in which they live", which are dynamically transformed into a specific historical and territorial context. Capacities can be built in each of the subfields of the Master:

In the field of culture. Capacities for:

a) understand the ways in which people and communities make sense in everyday life;

b) understand the ways in which they share the meaning produced (that is, they communicate it);

c) understand the ways in which they build knowledge with the senses produced and shared. The previous three are essential, but you could add capabilities such as:

d) learn to value the know-how practices of people who permanently use the "common culture" (R. Williams) to build relationships and projects;

e) systematize the knowledge that has ancestral and popular knowledge as a source;

f) incorporate the acquis of learning that defines the universe of culture, and those that are understood today as "cyberculture", in which the new generations are protagonists.

Secondly, we incorporate as a basic element of training the theme of "diversity", that is, the capabilities of:

a) welcome the other as is;

b) assume the right to difference as an ethical principle;

c) be able to recognize difference as a fundamental element of the communicative interaction;

d) recognize diversity as a central position for dialogue;

e) learn to converse with the other-different;

f) learn to be a host without any conditions.

When we refer to education, we basically think about producing and learning knowledge for the world of life. In this sense, the basic capabilities are:

a) recognize the knowledge they produce, based on experience and practices, ancestral, popular and traditional 'knowers', such as native peoples, healers, herbalists, midwives, forest caretakers, teachers and Elders ... children and young people;

b) understand how such knowledge of the 'world of life' is produced and reproduced;

c) articulate said knowledge in new worldviews, in new complexities and visions of thought, in new knowledge and theoretical systems, without ignoring scientific knowledge, with which dialogue of knowledge takes place.

And when we refer to communication, these are the fundamental capabilities:

a) recognize the multiple and diverse ways of sharing with others, expressing, interacting, affecting, conversing;

b) recognize non-verbal languages, in which emotions occupy a determining place, being able to express experiences more directly;

c) understand the capabilities that a body has to enter the action, through constant practices or exercises of expression transformation;

d) assume the aesthetic dimension, where there is a permanent impact on sensitivity and mutually affect bodies in the creative act, as a privileged space of communication that generates other ways of feeling and thinking;

e) privilege spaces of freedom in daily life, where it is possible to interact from experience.

Finally, on the level of politics:

a) make the life forms and the societies we build more human;

b) recognize, recover, make visible and put into dialogue the knowledge, knowledge, experiences and daily ways of doing;

c) know how to guide the course of the collective. Weave social and community bonds, participate and implement conflict management and resolution strategies, taking into account the context or local and national contexts, contribute to the generation of inclusion strategies and encourage the search for social and political participation.
