Information Technology and Environmental Planning Specialty
Specialty in Management of rural areas and areas of natural interestTo obtain the title for a specialty, the student must take a minimum of 15 credits of subjects belonging to the module of that specialty. The rest of the optional credits can be taken with subjects from the same or from the other specialty modules. Finally, if you wish, if you do not meet the previous requirement, you can also obtain the title without specialty.
Credit transfer and recognition:
Recognition of credits: consists of the acceptance by a university of the credits that were obtained in an official education, in the same or in another university, and that are computed in other different teachings for the purposes of obtaining an official degree.
Transfer of credits: implies that in the official academic documents accrediting the successive teachings for each student, the totality of the credits obtained in official teachings taken previously, in the same or in another university, that have not led to the obtaining of an official title.SaidasThe training pursued in the master's degree aims to generate in the graduate the ability to develop planning and management instruments that make it possible to guarantee the sustainability of the territory, in its environmental, economic and sociocultural dimensions.
In short, it addresses a strategic issue for postgraduate training at the University of Santiago de Compostela and, in general, in the Galician University System, with undoubted professional opportunities both in Galicia and outside of it.
On the other hand, the training received is considered essential for the completion of a doctoral thesis in territorial studies at any scale.
