    Teaching methodologies and assessment

    Classes in seminar format allow a comprehensive reflection of the problems under discussion. More important than the transmission of knowledge is, in this sense, the attribution of competences based on the reflection and criticism of the themes presented through the debate, oriented around the subjects treated. Experts are invited in the different fields of the treated themes, mostly international, allowing a reflection and criticism of the themes presented through the debate oriented around the treated subjects; promoting a omprehensive reflection on the subjects taught. An international study visit is carried out annually, allowing contact with different realities and forms of action, enabling new perspectives and the sharing of knowledge with different realities. The evaluation is carried out continuously.
