The pre-enrollment period for the Master’s Degree in International Cooperation and Emancipatory Education has begun

Date: 2024 April 16

"There is a need to move towards a broader education model, both in its conception of Education, and in overcoming the concept of Development, betting on the opening of a transition towards new formulas in the key of emancipation, response to the crisis of model, to the crisis of cooperation and alliance for social change.” (Juan José Celorio)

This  postgraduate course  is designed to  improve the professional skills of individuals linked to cooperation, education and other fields of social action. The pre- enrollment period for this master's degree, which is coordinated by the Hegoa Institute and taught through the virtual campus, began on Monday 15 April.

This Master aims to train people who promote critical development cooperation, called to move from policies focused on meeting basic needs, to others aimed  to strengthen political subjects, capable of promoting social justice and an emancipatory education.

It lasts 13 months (from October 2023 to November 2024) and  consists of 60 ECTS credits (divided into 12 subjects) and a final research project. It is a flexible master's degree that is compatible with other occupations, since it is completely online and has both university and social group teaching staff. The assessment system is continuous, adjusting to the characteristics of a distance learning course.
