Master Discourse, Communication, Society 

An application for a new official master in Discourse,Communication, Society (DCS) is under preparation. This Master is multidisciplinary, with optional subjects from other official master degrees of the UPF, UAB and UB.

The DCS Master, the first in Spain (and probably in Europe) in Discourse Studies (ED) is aimed at students in the humanities and social sciences in particular those who want to specialize in ED outside their own undergraduate discipline  and / or have the intention to carry on a doctorate and a thesis of an important dimension of discourse analysis.

The Master in DCS has compulsory courses in  (topics related to) discourse studies, communication and social science, but in general it is characterized by a very large freedom to choose elective subjects in many disciplines of the UPF, UAB and UB.

If the application of the new Masters DCS is approved (in autumn 2008) in the  commissions of the departments and universities involved, and if  the national evaluation agency, ANECA, approves it (summer 2009), the new Master's degree may start in September 2010.
