The master's degree is taught, simultaneously, both in classroom-based modality and in streaming.
The face-to-face classes are held in the Edifici Blanc (UAB Foundation headquarters, Vila Universitària area), which has computers with a connection through the Anella Científica and the most used specialized software in the academic and professional world (MiraMon, Envi, ArcGIS, Definiens (eCognition), etc).
Most of the bibliography for the Master is in English. Learning materials are provided in Spanish and in Catalan, and in selected subjects in English. In general terms, at he master aproximately 80 % of classes are taught in Spanish and 20 % are taught in Catalan; naturally the students can express themselves oral or writing in emails, documents, etc, in the language that they prefer (typically Catalan, Spanish or English). Past experience has shown that students with a Romance language (Spanish, Italian, etc) background are able to follow explanations in Catalan in less than one month. The UAB offers free Catalan courses. Contact to the International Welcome Point for more details:
