Why to study this degree in the UdL?

Universities are committed to the creation and transfer of knowledge, and professional training. Therefore, the professional training of students is our main goal. Universities must also respond to the demands of a constantly changing society and, at the same time, they must embrace knowledge in all its dimensions. It must firstly be guaranteed that universities’ knowledge and traditions continue and are updated in order to continue to offer a specific intellectual, scientific and human experience. Secondly, agile and flexible responses must be given in order to implement teaching methods that reflect the demands of society.

With regard to teaching methods, we are committed to continuous assessment, active pedagogical methodology and professional training (internships are compulsory). In addition, students are given an introduction to research methods (final project). One of the greatest advantages of the curriculum is that subjects are coordinated to ensure that students receive basic grounding in the field and that content is not duplicated from one subject to another. Lectures can either be attended in the morning or in the afternoon. Students can take therefore manage their time according to their interests and availability.
