The Master’s programme is structured in two lines of study: a theoretical one (which includes modules I and II) and a practical one (modules III and IV), which begin in parallel from the beginning of the course.

THEORY
– Modules I and II consist of master classes of 4 hours each session.
– Lessons run from October to March, Monday to Thursday from 4 pm to 8 pm..
– Mostly taught by professors who are doctors, not only from the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB) but also from other universities.
– These theoretical modules are a fundamental part of the training and bring the student closer to the different documentary forms, their historical evolution and their aesthetic options. With the acquired knowledge, students base their decisions on practical modules.
– Some sessions will be accompanied by a screening that will begin at 3 pm in the same classroom where the class will take place.
– The space where take place is Casa Convalescència – UAB.
