Degree in Philosophy organised alongside the Saint Theresa of Jesus Catholic University of Ávila

Why study at UAO CEU?

1. Double Degree in Psychology and Philosophy

New double degree in Psychology and Philosophy that allows students to earn two official degrees. 

2. Employability 

93.3 % of our Psychology students find employment at the end of their studies, 10 percentage points above the average for Catalan universities (AQU 2020 Jobs Survey)

3. Methodology

In the degree of Psychology, our teaching model is based on practical, personalised training, linking theory with professional practice, through placements at companies, schools, hospitals and day centres, along with practical workshops and seminars. We have more than 15 years’ experience offering professional education in psychology.

We promote an active, enterprising spirit in students, such as through the creation of the Psykhé Group. This group organises the Annual Conference of Students of Psychology, in which students present a project or study they have carried out in a specific area in the course of their degree. It reinforces early research activity and provides valuable experience in public presentations.

The degree in Philosophy can be taken in person or remotely. Students have the option of attending classes two afternoons a week at Abat Oliba CEU University or studying the course from anywhere in the world thanks to our online teaching platform. This format means the degree can be combined with other studies or made to fit around your job. 

3. Comprehensive options

Philosophy: Students can continue their studies after the undergraduate degree by taking the Official Master's Degree in Humanistic and Social Studies, a cross-disciplinary programme aimed at helping students access a PhD programme in the field of humanities and the social sciences.
Psychology: The Official Master's Degree in General Health Psychology enables students to practise the profession, whether they are self-employed or employed by others in the healthcare sector.


The Degree in Philosophy is organised by UAO CEU and the Saint Theresa of Jesus Catholic University of Ávila (UCAV), a Catholic university located in Ávila (Castilla y León). This university is well known for their experience in offering distance learning.

UCAV has three faculties: Social and Legal Sciences, Sciences and Arts, and Health Sciences.

4. Therapeutic Psychological Care Unit

Third- and fourth-year Psychology students attend master classes in Psychopathology as part of the Master’s Degree in General Health Psychology, taught at the Therapeutic Care Unit run by UAO CEU at the Sagrat Cor University Hospital - Quirónsalud Group, allowing them to experience real therapeutic sessions with patients.

5. Teaching staff

More than 70% of the teaching staff of our Degree in Psychology are professionally active, specialising in the subject they teach.

The teaching staff of the Degree in Philosophy mostly come from the Thomist School of Barcelona, present in several universities around the world: Abat Oliba CEU University, the University of Barcelona, San Dámaso Ecclesiastical University, Universidad de los Andes de Chile, etc., who will teach from their respective centres.
