The Máster de Formación Permanente en International Education is part of the Teach & Learn in Spain Program, and it is designed for future professionals, teachers, and administrators who plan to pursue a career in an international environment at any educational level (from young learners to high school).
This MA program provides a comprehensive background in the historical, theoretical, and social foundations of international education programs including addressing cultural aspects in the classroom, global English in an intercultural context, and leadership and educational management in an international environment. The courses in this degree program are taught in English and in Spanish, so a high level of fluency in both languages will be needed to succeed in this program.
The Máster de Formación Permanente en International Education is structured into three distinct areas: academic courses, a life experience portfolio or practicum, and the development and submission of a Master's Thesis.
This program runs for one academic year (nine months), from September to June, and is worth 60 ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) credits. It combines onsite classes (Fridays) with online sessions (during the week).
This is a one-year Master propio and is accredited by the Universidad de Alcalá, a public university in Spain, recognized by Ministerio de Educación, Cultura y Deporte of Spain.
