Postgraduate and Official Master in European Constitutional Law

Introduction.

The Postgraduate programme and Official Master in European Constitutional Law is simultaneously a Doctorate Course and an Official Master of the Faculty of Law at the University of Granada. As a Doctoral Programme, it allows students to carry out their Doctoral studies in one academic course and to obtain the sufficient research experience in order to elaborate the Doctoral Thesis and to obtain a doctorate degree.

The Postgraduate programme and Official Master have obtained the Mention of Quality from the Ministry of Education and Sciences. A Mention of Quality is a nationally recognized honour granted to programmes that meet specific conditions of quality.

The Postgraduate programme and Official Master are taught within the framework of the Jean Monnet Chair of European Constitutional Law and the “ad personam” Jean Monnet Chair of European Constitutional Law and Globalisation, both directed by Professor Francisco Balaguer Callejón. The programme of study integrates not only topics related to European Constitutional Law, but also topics concerning the process of supranational integration in other geographic areas, such as the supranational projection of Constitutional Law in the context of globalisation.

The professors of the Official Master and Postgraduate programme include Jean Monnet Chairs on various issues and a great number of visiting professors from other universities in different countries, for example Spain, Germany, Italy, Portugal, France, Brazil, and the United States. In the current academic course, and within the framework of the Jean Monnet Chair “ad personam” of European Constitutional Law and Globalisation, the programme has successfully incorporated the participation of visiting professors from non-EU Member-States, like Brazil, the USA, and Mexico. It also includes new courses on the interrelationships between supranational integration and globalisation, from a constitutional perspective or on general subjects of similar topics within the courses previously offered.

The Official Master in European Constitutional Law is directed by Francisco Balaguer Callejón, Professor of Constitutional Law at the University of Granada and Jean Monnet Chair and is coordinated by the Secretary of the Master, José María Porras Ramirez, Professor of Constitutional Law. In the previous editions, the Master and Doctoral Programmes were realized by students with very different geographic origins: Spain, Italy, Belgium, Poland, Portugal, Iceland, Montenegro, Romania, Japan, Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Brazil, Uruguay, Mexico, Peru and Morocco, among other countries.

The Official Master and Postgraduate programme can be realized in one year, after earning 60 ECTS credits, of which 40 correspond to classroom instruction and 20 to research, which requires the elaboration and preparation of a dissertation. Students of Law, Political Science and Sociology, Translation and Interpretation, Journalism and other similar disciplines can study the Master. All classes will take place between November and May during the school year (teaching stops at the Christmas holidays and Easter, as well as holidays established by the University of Granada). The training sessions are always held in the afternoon, from Monday to Thursday. Normally on Friday afternoon there are organized seminars given by visiting professors.

The research part of the course is based on a supervised research topic chosen in accordance with the tutor. The dissertation should be presented at the September session or in December in order to obtain the research capacity that allows for the carrying out of the Doctoral Thesis and obtaining the Official Master’s Degree from the University of Granada. Students from other countries will be permitted to make the presentation of the dissertation by videoconference.
