Words from the Head of the School
Education is the most significant tool for changing individual and social life. It is a process that occurs throughout life in different spaces and contexts, such as the family and formal educational frameworks, workplaces, community life and media in all its diversity. Through education the person acquires knowledge, skills and values and develops personality, attitude and identity. Education is also of crucial importance in the process of creating a tolerant, egalitarian, just and democratic society.
Knowledge of these educational processes and skills for intervention in them are resources necessary for success in workplaces. Our mission at the School of Education is to produce, learn and teach strategies, practices and tools for addressing educational issues and to prepare professionals, policymakers and researchers who can develop and create educational opportunities that are just and fair.
