  • Master's Degree in Social Welfare: Family Intervention
    imatge de la noticiaThe dynamics of social changes that occur in complex societies directly influences the professional practice of social work. These changes have been influencing the social and economic context since the sixties and have increased the demand for more trained social workers. Some of the most important changes have been the introduction of flexible working strategies in a globalised economic environment, which has caused processes of job insecurity and vulnerability in certain groups, who often become subjects of social work intervention because of their social fragility. These groups need a comprehensive solution that promotes their integration capacity and access to the labour market. Furthermore, the significant changes in family structure have weakened its protective capacity in a social welfare system so fundamentally familialist as the Spanish state’s. The reduction of family size, the diversity of forms of cohabitation, the incorporation of women into the labour market and the high rates of aging require new networks. This complexity leads to the need for professional profiles with high degree of specialisation both in theory and practice, allowing to understand and address problems generated by an ever changing society.

On this compromise, the training plan of the Master’s Degree offers four optional modules as of the corresponding areas of professional activity that widely encompass the field of cultural management.

Each student can choose three of the four modules, to configure his/her study plan.

The four areas mentioned above demand a training in accordance with the social necessity of a new kind of professional able to solve the challenges that are posed in the management of culture of our society from the current political, economic and social structures. This synthesis settles on the following objectives. 1. To master the management tools to create projects with which provide sense and value a specific asset, learning to fit in the creation of management bodies, the promotion of cultural events, the revitalisation of heritage and the configuration of training cycles and benefit for users. 2. Provide an operative training in the public and private bodies that traditionally occupy themselves in our society with activities of cultural management. 3. To train for the detection of the sources of funding and management of the cultural resources in terms of sustainable economic revitalisation and profitability. 4. To train professionals experts of different keys of cultural politics both in the local area, as well as in the autonomous, national and European. 5. Provide students with the required knowledge to organise and lead multidisciplinary teams that work in the development of cultural management projects. 6. To organise in the student the concept of cultural management from the study of the legislation related with the management of culture. 7. To make contact with the professional reality of Cultural Management by informing students of real projects carried out by public and private bodies, exposing different real experiences of cultural management in the world of public administration and private company. 8.

  • Master’s Degree in Occupational Health and Safety
    imatge de la noticiaProtection of public health is a fundamental right recognised in the article 43 of the Spanish Constitution, where it also refers to the responsibility that the public authorities have in “organising and managing public health through preventive measures and the necessary benefits and services”. Health, understood as a state of physical, psychic and social well-being, according to the well-known definition of the World Health Organisation, in its individual as well as collective dimension, is determined by factors both of biological as well as environmental and social nature. The places and conditions in which the work is carried out are the main health and public well-being determinants, therefore require of the suitable assessment and control actions that guarantee the protection of worker’s health. In the pursuit of this responsibility, in 1995 the Spanish Occupational Health and Safety Law (Law 31/1995) is approved, regulatory framework by which a series of principles and organisational and technical provisions are established to guarantee the protection of health of the workers in Spain. Thus, companies must guarantee that the conditions and organisation of work are safe and healthy, being responsible in this both the directors and decision-makers in the work centres, as well as workers, with rights and obligations concerning labour risks, and the management office itself, guarantor of the fulfilment of the regulatory provisions and objectives in this field. This Law establishes the different modalities with which, compulsorily, must organise all the companies to guarantee the fulfilment of their obligations in terms of labour risk prevention. The designated Occupational Health and Safety Services become one of the main resources with which the companies count for the guidance and technical support that requires intervention in terms of health and security at work. In its turn, both in the modality of internal and external prevention services, these bodies should count with all the facilities, human resources and materials needed to carry out the preventive activities that the company is to perform. In particular, the regulation establishes that between the trained personnel in these services are technicians with the suitable training to carry out higher level functions. The future professionals in the field of occupational health and safety require a series of basic competences for which its acquisition the best guarantee is this postgraduate university training.

  • Master’s Degree in Gender and Equality Policies
    imatge de la noticiaThe first definition of a professional figure so-called Equal Opportunity Officer can be found in 1985 in a Seminar organised by the European Centre for Development of European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training. In this seminar it was already stated the necessity of a previous university training (licenciatura, diplomatura), a training complement relating to: legal, economic, sociological and management knowledge, studies on feminism, design and management of positive action projects and assessment techniques, knowledge on human communication. After 1991, the Spanish Institute of Women’s Affairs discussed in their annual meeting the intervention of the Equal Opportunity Officer in local affairs, counting with some previous publications such as “Guía didáctica: Asesoras para la Igualdad” (“Learning guide: Equality Advisors”). Some countries within the European environment have already started to standardise this professional figure. In 1994 the Spanish National Occupational Classification by the INEM gathers this professional figure, distinguishing between Equal Opportunity Officer and Equal Opportunity Promoter according to university training. In these years several Local Administrations have recruited professionals of this kind to their staff. The year 2004 was a fruitful year in meetings and congresses on the profile of the Equal Opportunity Officer. In Pontevedra was held the 1st Congress on Equal Opportunity Officers in October. In the same month the 1st Congress in Castilla-León of Equal Opportunity Officers Between Men and Women. At the same time professional associations of Equal Opportunity Officers are created in the Autonomous Communities of Galicia, Asturias, Cantabria, Basque Country, Valencian Community, Baleares, Castile-La Mancha, Navarra, Madrid, Castile and Leon and Andalucia. In parallel a process to configure an Estate Federation of Associations of on Equal Opportunity Officers starts. In the Valencian Community and through a NOW initiative promoted by the General Directorate on the Status of Women, the University of Valencia created the first class of Equal Opportunity Officers in the year 1998. The first class of which 27 students graduated makes up the first network of public attention of women in the Valencian Community. The Master’s Degree has a dual orientation: research and professional. It expects to comply both the orders issued by the specific legislation regarding equality, such as those orders regarding the development of the Ley Orgánica de Universidades (Universities Organic Law). Regarding the former it should be noted that the Organic Law 1/2004, of 28 December, of measures of comprehensive protection against gender violence (Art. 4.7) and Organic Law 3/2007, of 22 March (Art. 25). Lastly, the RD 1397/2007 that develops the LOU.
