Mission and objective

Our degrees are leading references in the Spanish academic field. At our Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences (Comillas CIHS), you will have the opportunity to take degrees and dual degrees backed by our solid academic prestige: Criminology and Social Work; Early Childhood Education and Primary Education; Philosophy; Philosophy, Politics and Economics; Psychology; Psychology and Business Administration and Management [ADE]; Psychology and Criminology; International Relations and Global Communication; Social Work; Translation and Interpreting and Language Technologies. Our faculty has pioneered the introduction of many of these degrees in our country; and several of them are offered as dual degrees in different academic combinations.

Our students are defined by both very high academic achievement and integral personal development. This is achieved thanks to a proven selection process, teaching in small groups, based on close attention to the student, and a careful and constant tutorial accompaniment.

The Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences is located on the Cantoblanco campus of Comillas Pontifical University. Our students carry out their daily activities in a modern campus with large green areas and sports facilities just 20 minutes from the centre of Madrid. Cantoblanco has an advanced library, multimedia classrooms, a state-of-the-art videoconferencing room, interpreting internships, a language laboratory and a recording studio, as well as services such as a bookshop and reprographics, a cafeteria and a restaurant.
