In a context of accelerated population ageing, globalisation, feminisation, urbanisation and technological revolution, the Master's degree offers multidisciplinary training for professionals who work in clinical, care, community, research and public policy contexts, from the integrated and interdisciplinary vision offered by gerontological science.

The Master's Degree in Psychosocial Gerontology is an academic offer that responds to new social and professional challenges aimed at promoting and defending the rights of the elderly, seeking their social participation and encouraging intergenerational exchange to take advantage of the resources and socio-cultural wealth that the different stages of the life cycle can offer.
