It is an essential requirement to access the Master's programs to have a Bachelor's degree or equivalent in accordance with the current legislation. A Bachelor's Degree in Communication Sciences (Journalism, Audiovisual Communication, Advertising and Public Relations) will be especially valued. In this sense, we are looking for students who have skills that foresee a good disposition for teamwork, have great flexibility and open-mindedness to the incorporation of new knowledge and new ways of working, and that, regardless of what scientific or technical studies they come from, they show a great interest in the humanities in general, and a great sense of social responsibility in professional work.
The admission process to the Master's degree begins by sending the following documentation by post or courier to the Postgraduate Admissions Section:
Once the documentation has been received and it has been verified that the diploma submitted grants to the degree, as established in Arts. 15 and 16 of Royal Decree 1393/2007, candidates take the admission test with the coordinator of the degree. This test is carried out in person in Madrid when possible or, failing that, it can also be taken remotely (online) for those candidates residing outside of Spain.
The candidate holds a personal interview with the Program Coordinator. This interview is in itself an admission test in which the specific knowledge of the candidate is evaluated through a battery of questions about the area of knowledge, as well as their level of maturity and attitudes to it. After this interview, the coordinator prepares a report on the candidate's skills profile, his degree of maturity, his personal interest in Audiovisual Journalism and his suitability for the degree, which is attached to the file that the Admissions Commission will assess.
The University Admissions Commission, made up of heads of the Department itself, the General Secretary and the Department of University Development will be in charge of proposing to the Rector of the University the granting of student status to those candidates whose suitability has been proven.
The candidate receives written information about their admission, which is previously provided by phone, about the result of the admission process and formalizing their enrollment in the Program, the definitive documentation, duly legalized, that must be submitted, etc.
The faculty of the School of Communication and Arts is made up of professionals from each field of specialization, who develop a teaching method based on the conviction that what we learn, we learn by doing it.
