The requirements for access to master's studies are regulated in Royal Decree (RD) 1393/2007, of October 29, which establishes the organization of official university education, which was modified by RD 861/2010, of July 2. Article 16 establishes the following:
1. To access official master’s degree courses, it will be necessary to be in possession of an official Spanish university degree or another issued by a higher education institution belonging to another State that is a member of the European Higher Education Area that authorizes it for access to master’s degree courses.
2. Likewise, graduates from educational systems outside the European Higher Education Area may access without the need for their degrees homologation, after verification by the University that they accredit a level of training equivalent to the corresponding official Spanish university degrees. and they entitle the holder to access postgraduate studies in the country issuing the degree. Access by this route will not imply, in any case, the homologation of the previous degree held by the interested party, nor its recognition for other purposes than that to attend the master’s degree courses.
Specific access requirements to the master's degree:
The master's degree has been configured considering primarily a type of student body: students with a humanistic degree training who wish to learn methods and good practices for digitally processing information. The training that the student will acquire will allow them to start research on the basis of solid theoretical and methodological foundations in DH. Thus, this master's degree guarantees a specialized and specific qualification in various fields of the humanities.
Given the nature of the Master's degree, priority for registering will be given to students who hold one of the following qualifications:
- Bachelor’s degrees in Philology or Literary Studies, Theory of Literature and Comparative Literature or other related fields.
- Bachelor's degrees in History, History of Art, Geography, Archeology or similar.
- Bachelor's degrees in Philosophy, Anthropology or other related.
. Degrees in Translation and Interpreting, Humanities, or other related fields.
- Bachelor's degrees in the area of Library Science and Documentation.
The master's degree will also be open to graduates or graduates in any other specialty, although with a different scale depending on the origin of the student.
Leveling courses are not foreseen since the master's degree is eminently methodological, so it cannot replace basic a humanistic training. It is understood that if someone from another branch of knowledge takes it, it will be for their interest in its application to other disciplines.
