Learning activities and methodology
* Master classes in which the fundamental conceptual content that the student must acquire are developed. Therefore in addition to advise the necessary manuals and a specific bibliography for the specific subjects to be provided at the beginning of the semester, will be provided in advance the student materials prepared by the teacher to the deeper issues and a better follow-up of the explanations. These materials will serve to introduce the debate and discussion topics that have more interest for both teacher and the students themselves.
