Contents and methodology

The Masters Degree is structured in six modules:

  • Compulsory Module I – Musical Mediation: focusses on the specific subjects referring to musical mediation and management and educational innovation.
  • Module II – Creation of Projects: focussed on the development of competences which allow the students to experience, from a practical approach, the different possibilities music has to provide a vehicle for messages, actions and interventions in different social and cultural contexts.
  • Module III – Musical Management and Dissemination: focussed on the development of competences which allow the students to discover the professional reality of music, as well as other subjects which complement training from the deep knowledge of musical institutions, their spaces, their structure, their functioning and the different communication and management possibilities of projects.
  • Optional Module IV : offers material which widens the range of knowledge presented in the compulsory modules, shining a spotlight on the artistic and cultural avant-garde and current social problems, placing the mediator’s role in context.
  • Module V – Work Experience: presents the opportunity to gain work experience in institutions carrying out musical activities in the fields of education and/or social work.
  • Module VI – Dissertation: this will allow the students to demonstrate the acquisition of appropriate competences for the Masters and the carrying out of a research dissertation which will be presented in public.

Type of Teaching: Blended learning, with online and face-to-face classes

Group classes

External work experience, in institutions which carry out musical activities in the field of musical and cultural mediation and management.

Group classes will be in Spanish and individual classes will be in the preferred language agreed between the teacher and student (Spanish, Basque, English or French).
