Human Education in Values Module

What does the Human Education in Values Module consist of?

These are cross-disciplinary subjects taught at the University of Deusto that all students should take in their respective degrees.

One of the subjects is taken in 2nd yearº (6 ECTS) and the other in 4th yearº (6 ECTS).

The different options and the selection process can be found on this website.

Why is this module being taught?

Because it is in line with the University' s Jesuit identity, which according to the Ledesma-Kolvenbach paradigm, involves aiming at individual development in all its dimensions:

  • Utilitas. Professional excellence at the service of the human family.
  • Humanitas. Educating individuals who are mindful, competent, compassionate and engaged.
  • Iustitia. Looking at the world with academic rigour from the perspective of the impoverished, those who suffer injustice.
  • Fides. A faith that, in constant openness and dialogue with the world, helps us grow in humanity.

By adapting to the Bologna European Higher Education Area, it focuses on:

  • The acquisition of a wide range of competences.
  • Curricula that include teaching oriented towards respect for and promotion of human rights, the values of a culture of peace and democracy, and the principles of equality and solidarity.
