Part time Masters in Humanities and Social Sciences in Barcelona in Spain. Research Master in Sociology and Demography The master's programme in Sociology and Demography trains professionals to conduct high-quality research on key socio-demographic aspects of modern societies. In these turbulent times, it is more important than ever to determine which dynamics affect individuals and families and how the financial crisis is impacting various groups. This programme provides students with state-of-the-art methodological tools to answer questions such as: What impact has the crisis had on social inequalities and social cohesion? How has it affected people's living and working conditions? How has it affected their health? What effect has it had on people's chances for educational and occupational mobility? What strategies have people chosen to deal with the crisis and how have they affected family structures, marriage and young people's ability to strike out on their own? What role do women play in the household economy today and how has it affected gender relations? Has the crisis hit all social classes, countries and welfare states equally hard? Is it possible to grow without sacrificing social cohesion? With what policies? The programme's content allows students to explore these and other important questions related to social organization from a dynamic perspective, identifying the opportunities, needs and problems that arise for individuals in different stages of their lives. It moreover does so from a comparative international perspective in order to address the role of social and institutional factors in explaining imbalances and social dynamics. Objectives The master's programme's primary aim is to provide solid research training to social science professionals. Students will thus learn to formulate and empirically test alternative theories on the main socio-demographic changes and the origin of inequalities in modern societies. The programme's approach is both analytical and empirical. To this end, students are trained in the most widely used theoretical approaches taken by the scientific community to gain insight into current socio-demographic structures and dynamics. At the same time, however, they learn to test the validity of their theoretical hypotheses using the latest analytical techniques. The programme covers theoretical approaches and analytical techniques from both demography and sociology. On the one hand, it explores the demographic dynamics (fertility, mortality, ageing, migratory flows, etc.) affecting both human populations at large and key institutions within them (such as the family, school or work) using the best statistical techniques available today. On the other hand, it uses multidisciplinary research techniques to examine the most important social phenomena (poverty, social cohesion, social mobility, etc.) arising from social relations of rivalry, power and cooperation. The result is a unique and innovative approach that looks at the interplay between demographic and social dynamics in order to further our understanding of the directions in which modern societies are headed. Who is it for? This master's programme is aimed at university graduates and professionals seeking world-class research-oriented training in the field of the social sciences based on a socio-demographic approach that takes into account both the population dynamics and social structures of advanced societies.

Master in Cognitive Systems & Interactive Media The mission of the Master in Cognitive Systems and Interactive Media (CSIM) is to train the researchers and professionals who will investigate, develop and design the interactive cognitive systems and media of tomorrow. The results may be physical devices, such as robots, or logical ones, such as sophisticated software that provides new experiences and/or virtual environments. The CSIM programme draws on three main fields of knowledge: interactive technology, cognitive sciences and interactive media. To achieve its objective, the programme takes an interdisciplinary approach that is critical to providing students with an in-depth knowledge of the design, construction, development, deployment and analysis of interactive cognitive systems and media, along with the necessary skills to successfully carry out all of these stages. The CSIM programme's goal is to produce integrators of such interactive cognitive devices and programmes. The CSIM offers a wide range of lectures and tutorials by renowned scientists. In terms of theory, students will acquire a basic understanding of the cognitive functions of the brain and its computational models, key issues in the development of interactive cognitive systems. At the practical level, students will learn to design and develop creative and scientific solutions in order to rationally, consistently and efficiently integrate current and future technologies into interactive cognitive systems. The CSIM programme offers students the scientific and practical tools they need to pursue their studies independently and to develop and integrate interactive cognitive systems into useful systems with real-world applications. Objectives The main objective of the Master in Cognitive Systems and Interactive Media is to train the next generation of researchers and professionals who will research, develop, design and analyse cognitive systems and interactive media. Who is it for? Students on this master's programme should have a background in technology engineering (computing or telecommunications), psychology, biology, audiovisual communication or another area related to the programme's interdisciplinary approach. Candidates must be highly motivated and hard-working and have both a strong interest in technology and cognitive sciences and a creative spirit. They must moreover have prior knowledge of programming and be willing to immerse themselves in technological topics. Structure The programme consists of a single track providing a solid, coherent vision of cognitive systems and interactive media. It is essentially geared towards research, and students must complete 20 compulsory credits, 20 optional credits and a 20-credit final research project. The master's programme can be completed in one year, if taken full-time, or in two, if taken part-time. The programme is organized into terms and is designed to reflect the priority areas of research defined by the European Commission. Content The master's programme aims to train integrators of complex systems and devices by combining knowledge and skills from the fields of interactive communication, cognitive psychology, linguistics, art, digital technology and communication. The programme is designed to reflect the priority areas of research defined by the European Commission, which it groups into the following general topics: Cognitive Systems: This track encompasses functional aspects of the concepts, methods and advanced technologies required to enable future smart devices to perceive, decide, feel emotions and behave. Specifically, it focuses on their capacity to adapt to and behave in complex environments, on their ability to interact and communicate with humans and other devices, and on how our understanding of biological systems can help develop the cognitive systems of the future. This track trains students to become the behavioural and psychological engineers of tomorrow's devices. Content and Media: The objective is to prepare students to contribute to the challenges facing both today's society at large and particular individuals and organizations with regard to the vast variety of partially interactive content that they must present and process. Special emphasis is placed on key concepts and methods in the optimization of the interaction between humans and machines on the one hand and information and the media on the other. Additionally, this track explores, analyses and thoroughly experiments with specific features of interactive media with a view to broadening the range of possibilities and adding new potential rather than simply replacing or enhancing non-interactive media. Quality of Life: In future, healthcare and social services will rely on interactive devices and media. The main challenges will be not only to cure, but also to maintain and enhance quality of life through cognitive systems and interactive media. Students on this track will be immersed in the psychological and technological aspects of this major development. To contribute to improving quality of life, new methods and media will need to strike the right balance between technological possibilities and human creativity. Interaction and Mobility: This track will introduce students to this complex system of problems and train them to apply a wide range of concepts and technologies in order to help solve them. Likewise, human mobility involves many forms of transport, which generate a variety of needs with regard to device autonomy and the presentation of information. Internship In keeping with the research orientation of this programme, the final research project will be carried out in the context of one of the research groups of the Department of Information and Communication Technologies, thereby ensuring a rich and stable environment for acquiring experience in the field. Knowledge, skills and comptences acquired\ The specific competencies acquired in this master's programme include the ability to: Develop interactive devices with cognitive systems using mixed methodologies based on analysis, design, development, deployment and assessment. Apply mixed methodologies from cognitive science, human-computer interaction and communication. Design solutions in the form of interactive devices through requirements analysis. This design is based on abstract biological and neurological computational models and interactive communication. Develop, implement and code solutions designed to include advanced interface technologies, neurological simulations and control languages, as well as interactive installations and devices. Assess interactive devices using controlled, experimental, objective and quantitative methods. Apply an interdisciplinary approach that combines cognitive science, interactive technologies and digital media to solve problems in ways that lead to new interactive devices. Apply current theories and computational models about the brain and about how it relates to interactive devices by means of cognitive systems. Apply these devices and systems to real-world problems. Career prospects This master's programme offers a wide range of career opportunities. Students seeking a career in research will be able to pursue doctoral studies in any of the areas included in the programme's interdisciplinary focus. Students seeking careers outside of academia will be able to draw on their experience with the analysis, design, implementation, experimentation, testing and assessment of interactive devices via cognitive systems to enter a wide range of fields, from industrial and home robotics to outdoor interactive advertising, the smart technology used by the automobile industry, the development of systems to help rehabilitate people with physical or cognitive disorders, large-format interactive entertainment, or smart museum technology.

Part time Masters in Humanities and Social Sciences in Barcelona in Spain. This program leads to the title of University Master's Degree in International Cooperation and Public Policy Management, Programs and Projects Development from the International University Menéndez Pelayo, organized in collaboration with the University Institute Ortega y Gasset Research. The credits earned in the Master are recognized automatically for access to doctoral studies in any university in the European Higher Education. GOALS The Master in International Cooperation and Public Policy Management, Programs and Projects Development It aims to meet the demand for technical experts in international cooperation caused by the existence of a growing number of actors who bring resources in this area. First, even in a recessionary context like the present, developed countries disbursing significant resources in terms of Official Development Assistance (ODA) channeled through actors various such as multilateral agencies, development NGOs, agencies of state cooperation, regional and local or several ministerial departments. Second, a growing number of developing countries are driving political force with South-South cooperation, being one of the most transformative events current aid system. Among these actors of South-South Cooperation, Latin American countries are playing a leading role, as they have managed to become international benchmarks in this area through the efforts of systematization of their practices and re-conceptualization of cooperation they are doing. Finally, it also grows in the corporate commitment to various organizations with the implementation of cooperation programs in those countries where they are installed, promoting Corporate Social Responsibility policies that seek to align with the development agenda. The Master in International Cooperation and Public Policy Management, Programs and Projects Development responds to the need to train experts to carry out cooperation interventions that provide development results and know and innovative respond effectively to the demands posed by the current system of cooperation form. In this regard, it should be noted that the assumption of international commitments such as the Millennium Development Goals (2000) and the Paris Declaration for Aid Effectiveness (2005), the emergence of new development approaches as based on Rights human or importance are gaining new management tools such as budget support, pose major challenges of designing strategies and implementing programs that are widely worked in the teachings of this Master. On the other hand, since the holding of the High Level Forum in Busan in 2011, the cooperation system is experiencing an acute transformation, expanding its scope to form a Global Partnership for Development, again, it requires a thorough understanding of the subjects worked in this program. Specifically, the Master in International Cooperation and Public Policy Management, Programs and Projects Development pursues two objectives: - To learn more about the principles, operation and logic of the international aid system, its actors, policies and instruments, from critical reflection, promote interventions that have a positive impact on the eradication of the structures that create and perpetuate poverty. - To train the student in the identification, formulation, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of development interventions, ensuring this training both with regard to projects carried out by agencies and cooperation agencies, using the Logical Framework Approach and Approach Rights human (HRBA), and for programs and public policies that run the governments of developing countries with resources from cooperation. This program has been preceded by the Master in International Cooperation and Project Management University Research Institute Ortega y Gasset which have been held XI editions. During these eleven years they have passed through our classrooms over 300 students who have been very successful job placement in a wide range of agencies and public and private bodies from which cooperation resources are managed.
