The course combines academic theory with practical experience in real life. On the one hand, the course addresses the study of inequalities and social structure in the Spanish society. On the other hand, the course requires the active-learning of the day-to-day activities of different associations and NGOs. This dual strategy of service-learning helps to enrich the personal experience of students, and their academic development, by providing a deeper understanding of the course content while encouraging their sense of civic engagement.
