Master’s degree in Intervention in Cases of Violence Against Women

What does the Master consist of?

Presentation

The serious problem of violence against women calls for an urgent social transformation. This practical Master’s degree programme therefore focuses on training experts from different fields to intervene in a coordinated and multidisciplinary manner. The aim is to equip them with the competences needed to design, plan, manage, perform and evaluate welfare, psychosocial, educational, social, health care and/or legal interventions from a holistic perspective that has a bearing on the numerous factors that affect the needs of women and their environment.

Welcome from the Dean

Raquel Royo Prieto

I am pleased to welcome you to our webpage. It aims to offer you complete information on the Master’s degree in Intervention in Cases of Violence Against Women. The programme first began in 2003 and became an official Master’s degree in 2006-2007.

 

The programme approaches study of intervention in violence against women from an interdisciplinary perspective. This is undoubtedly one of today’s major social problems.

The historical and structural nature of the problem is related to the social inequality between men and women and a culture where females are regarded as inferior to males and are seen as objects that can be mistreated.

The overall purpose of this Master’s is precisely to promote the attainment of a more equalitarian society and the eradication of violence against women. It seeks to enable professionals to recognise these situations and the causes that give rise to gender-based violence, to analyse and put into practice measures to prevent this type of behaviour and improve services

For these reasons, the programme has worked closely with the Basque Government Women’s Institute (Emakunde) since it began.
