Objectives and Contextualisation

The main objective of this course is for students to apply the interdisciplinary methodologies and knowledge acquired during their training to professional contexts in different fields, both in the workplace and in the cultural and academic field, thus favouring the acquisition of skills that prepare them for the exercise of professional activities.

  • Rigorously rehearse interdisciplinary and interprofessional relationships.
  • Make contributions destined to the development of advisory actions, information, orientation and attention to groups discriminated by reason of gender or sexuality.
  • Collaborate in the planning, implementation, and evaluation of awareness-raising, training, and critical analysis activities related to equality between human beings (particularly those groups vulnerable to issues of sex, gender, and sexuality), from an intersectional perspective.
  • Assess their participation process.

Sida Study

The places to carry out the practicum will be assigned in accordance with the student's future work interests and, if necessary, establishing priorities based on the average mark of the student’s academic record. Undertaking the practicum guarantees:

- The contact of the students, during their training period, with a work environment of interest;
- Knowledge of the tasks in this area;
- The acquisition of work experience in a professional sector related to sociocultural gender studies.

Methodology

The characteristics and methodology of autonomous work will depend on the center where the student will do the external practices.

The tutorial is based on explaining what external practices are and monitoring their process.

Assessment

The external practices will be supervised by a professor, who will introduce the student to the person in charge of carrying out the supervision within the chosen institution.  Once the internship stay is over, the teacher will evaluate the performance according to the student’s report (delivered according to the established model) and the report of the supervisor of the institution (which also follows a model).

 The following should be noted:

  • Any student who has not completed 10% of the face-to-face hours established in the agreement will be rated as “Not evaluable”.
  • It will be classified as a “Fail” when the student has attended a 10% of the total hours, but has not completed the hours established in the agreement. This will also happen in the event that the student receives a negative evaluation.
  • Given the heterogeneity of the evaluation of the practicum, and the optional nature of this qualification, no Honors will be awarded.
  • The practicum cannot be retaken. 

In the event of a student committing any irregularity that may lead to a significant variation in the grade awarded to an assessment activity, the student will be given a zero for this activity, regardless of any disciplinary process that may take place. In the event of several irregularities in assessment activities, the student will receive a zero as the final grade for the class.
