The course in Political Leadership of the Centre for Studies, Training and Social Analysis is aimed at young students who are enrolled or will be enrolled in a university degree or double degree, with the vocation to commit themselves to the broad sphere of public life, always at the service of truth, justice and human dignity.
The course takes the form of face-to-face classes, from Monday to Friday, two subjects being taught in the morning and one in the afternoon, for a total of 6 hours a day, i.e. 30 hours a week in six specific weeks during the course.
- Last week of January and first week of February.
- Last two weeks of June, which will be spent living together at the Real Centro Universitario Escorial - María Cristina.
- First two weeks of September.
The face-to-face classes will be permanently monitored by the lecturer in charge of each subject, who will support the student through tutorials to collect the work that is requested and provide the additional training that the lecturer deems appropriate, without overlooking the vocation and intellectual curiosity of each student.
During their training, students will attend four Saturdays of face-to-face seminars (March, May, October and December) with guests of recognised prestige, experts in the different subjects of the course and who may be of special interest. Each of the sessions will end with a lunch meeting between the guest speaker and the students.
The training will be completed with two trips or visits to outstanding cultural and historical centres in Spain.
