Reasons to Choose

The Degree in Humanities and Social Anthropology starts from an up-to-date conception of university education in these fields, something not very common in the Spanish universities. Therefore, the background used to design our degree comes from some of the most prestigious universities in France, United Kingdom and United States.

The learning strategies designed for the Degree in Humanities and Social Anthropology take into account the contemporary considerations related to this kind of disciplines and their job opportunities. For example, our syllabus takes into consideration new technologies and one of the weak points of the university education in Spain, the English language, together with scientific writing and reading workshops during the different years.

Finally, our syllabus is also adapted to the labour market, particularly to the cultural sector, and it offers a wide range of skills and abilities such as flexibility and adaptability for the students so that they can develop their work across a broad range of areas, what used to be an endemic weakness in these studies.
