Learning objectives
1. The student analyses, problematises and defends the undoubtable multicultural reality that is the world where we must live. 2. Manages to understand the need and aims for a critical and reflexive focus on this universe charaterised by cultural diversity. 3. Acquires the capability to assume, present and defend a truly intercultural stance; thus advocating the need for a pro diversity and pro human rights education, to be understood as societal development. It enables the students to reflect and understand the challenges imposed on them by their own society. Allowing them to have knowledge of the different approaches and solutions that, depending on ideological and political perspectives, can be applied in this mutating society. It provides the students with reflective tools to be able to build an intervention (at educational level first) in the multicultural reality in a way that is scientific, autonomous and deeply inclusive of diversity.
