Students that join a master’s degree in the UMA recognize the importance of developing themselves as agents of change engaging in a process of transformation and personal enrichment that will facilitate the development of iniciatives and projects that seek to change the current practices of their disciplines toward sustainable models. Enable them to take on healthy leadership roles.
We know that the first change to be pursued is one’s own.
Educational Model For Systemic Transformation
To reach a sustainable future, we need to re-invent many of the basic human systems: how we feed ourselves, how we build, how we do business, how we educate ourselves, how we regulate ourselves, and how we live. Our postgraduate programs support the development of professionals interested in transforming their disciplines into regenerating activities for our society and the environment.
The UMA educational model is centered on integrating a learning community in which the students and teachers alike learn from each other based on three pathways that are interconnected in terms of sustainability and regeneration: the discipline pathway, forming an innovative professional; the projects pathway, to develop social and environmental initiatives; and, the change pathway, enabling the transformation of systems.
SEMI-PRESENCIAL LEARNING (EXECUTIVE) – ACTIVE LEARNING
This model allows you to live wherever you wish and to study with us. The executive educational system is the latest tendency in higher education, consisting of a carefully planned mix of presencial sessions (classroom workshops) and both independent and online learning activities. The students make a significant connection with their instructors, as well as with other students, during the presencial sessions, while the periods between sessions are dedicaded to the development of assignments and the participation in online sessions. Three presencial sessions are scheduled per semester in Valle de Bravo, each with a length of four days. The period of non presencial/virtual classroom between sessions is five weeks long. The semi presencial Master’s Degree program has a duration of two years.
