Double qualification

With the Degree in Law and the Degree in Journalism


1. Double qualification

Abat Oliba CEU University is a pioneer in the methodology that allows students to combine two qualifications and gain two degrees in five years. The Degree in Political Science is taught in a blended learning format, allowing students to combine it with their Law or Journalism studies. 

We offer these double qualifications to train future law and journalism experts who also have a solid knowledge of political science. With a theoretical and practical understanding of the subjects, they will be fully competent in both.

This degree gives UAO CEU Law and Journalism students extra-curricular education that contributes to their unique profile, improving their expertise and by extension, broadening their range of job opportunities. With this training, they will become experts in political movements, figureheads and activity, as well as current organisations and their policies.

2. Methodology

A practical, personalised educational model with lectures, seminars, workshops and practical case studies, as well as other activities, such as:

  • Practical seminars
  • Rhetoric workshops
  • Visits to local and international institutions
  • Debating Society
3. International outlook

We offer all law students the chance to study the Master's in US Law at the University of Saint Thomas in Minnesota.

4. Further education

The Wolters Kluwer Certifica programme aims to boost studies in both law and technology.

5. Research

The Gift & Task Foundation on Bioethics and Law.
