The main goal of the Doctor’s Degree in Social Sciences is to train specialists in the interdisciplinary fields of Social Sciences and intercultural mediation through research aimed at the production of the student’s doctoral dissertation.
This is achieved through research in the following areas:
1. Sociological analysis
3. Applied economics
4. Latin American studies
5. Intercultural translation and mediation
The first area is focused on the training of doctors in the study and analysis of social reality from a sociological point of view, both through theoretical approaches and through their application to social facts or specific realities.
The second is focused on the training of experts in history and methodology in the fields of American ethnology, Spanish colonization chronicles, anthropology and education, the latter including indigenous anthropology and worldview, myths and beliefs.
The third addresses economic issues, the welfare state, the labour market, public policies and international trade and cooperation.
The fourth approaches Latin American studies from a crosscutting perspective and addresses interdisciplinary studies on Latin America including, along with other lines of research, historical, cultural and educational studies and studies related to the legal framework.
The fifth is aimed at the training of doctors in the multidisciplinary field of translation, both from its linguistic aspect (research on different aspects of the languages involved and their relationship), and from its more cultural dimension.
Those who are interested in enrolling in the Doctoral Degree in Social Sciences are expected to have completed at least an undergraduate degree in the field of Social Sciences (Sociology, Economics, Political Sciences, History, Anthropology, International Relations), a degree in Translation and Interpreting, or a similar licentiate degree.
