UNIVERSITY OF ZARAGOZA

UNIZARThe Faculty of Social Sciences is the leader in the area in training NGO professionals and will contribute to the project with its expertise in the area. The University of Zaragoza joins the project with the special task of dissemination and implementation of the project results. The Diploma in Social Work was established in Spain in 1980 to deliver university social work studies and created a Diploma in Social Work. There was then the transformation of the old School of Social Work and in 1981 the Colleges of Social Work was established. In 1989 it joined the Diploma in Social Work at the University of Zaragoza. Simultaneously the college offered the Master of Applied Social Studies, self-study graduate of the University of Zaragoza.

With more than 100 teachers and 1,500 students, the Faculty is projected into the future as a centre that performs a teaching and research quality in the service of Aragon society. To complete this line of work, in 2008-09 the "PhD in Gender Relations" was launched, connected to the Master in Gender Relations. We believe that everything that contributes to train professionals should have an important role in building a more fair and egalitarian society. This Master offers three specialties: Gender and Education, Gender and Work, Gender and Cultural building.
