    About the Double Bachelor’s degree

    Social Education and Social Work are involved in the social spherein a different way:

    • Social Education has an impact on the educational processof individuals or groups to promote both personal and community integration and development.
    • Social Work focuses its intervention on those aspects in which people interact with their environment, providing support and promoting changes and improvements in situations of psychosocial discomfort, both at individual, family and community level. 

    The Double Bachelor's Degree will enable you to become a professional capable of working eitherin teams of teachersor social workers. You will also have greater professional development in those areas where there is no profile differentiation. You will become a professional in educational and social intervention, capable of providing support to individuals and groups, both in their learning and in their social inclusion, and contribute to the construction of a fairer, more egalitarian society.


    If you are someone who….

    Is socially aware and want to fight against social injustice; if you have a vocation for education and  accompaniment and you are passionate about the idea of working in close contact with people to support them, then this double degree is right for you. 



    You can take the entire degree in Spanish but, if you wish, you have the option of taking up to 60% of the subjects in Basque. If you choose this option, you will obtain the Basque Government's recognition of C1 level of Basque (BOPV - Decree 47/2012). You will also have the opportunity to study some subjects in English.
