Vice Dean for the Bachelor: Fernando Broncano Rodríguez

Interuniversitary studies of Universidad Carlos III de Madrid with Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona and Universidad Autonoma de Madrid.


The Bachelor in Science, Technology and Humanities is organized by three universities: Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM), Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M) and Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB).

It lasts four years, with a single group of 45 students.

This bachelor is taught between Madrid and Barcelona.

The first and third years are taken at UAB; the second year between UAM and UC3M and, in the fourth year, each student takes the elective courses and the Bachelor Thesis at the university that granted him/her admission.

The degree aims to train professionals capable of understanding and analyzing science and technology as social and historical phenomena, incorporating the analysis and critical perspective provided by the human sciences.

In this way, students will acquire solid knowledge that will allow them to understand the deep connection between science, technology and humanities.

Employability and profesional internships

UC3M has agreements with over 3000 companies and institutions in which students can undertake internships and access job openings.

A total of 93.4 % of graduates from this University enter the job market the first year after finishing their studies, according to the 2019 XXIV Estudio de Inserción Profesional (Professional Placement Study).

Thus, some courses are held in Madrid and others in Barcelona:

  • First year: Barcelona (UAB)
  • Second year: Madrid (first semester at UC3M and second semester at UAM).
  • Third year: Barcelona (UAB)
  • Fourth year: Each student takes the courses at the university that granted him/her admission.


In this bachelor, the courses will be taught in spanish.


Each of the participating universities will allocate 15 places. However, during the first three years, the 45 students will form a single group.

Profile and career opportunities

  • Entry Profile

    Entry profiles

    The degree is aimed at students interested in integrating the knowledge of fields that are currently practically watertight at the undergraduate level: Humanities and Sciences sensu lato. It will be of special interest to those students coming from either of the two branches of knowledge of the Baccalaureate, scientific or humanistic, who wish to combine them in their undergraduate studies. In this sense, it has been detected that there are students from the scientific baccalaureate who have retained a keen interest in the humanities, who recognize their relevance to the sciences despite the forced separation between baccalaureates, and who wish to continue their education by studying humanities. The interest and need felt by humanities students to approach science as an object of study has also been detected. Students of this degree are expected to have an open mind and a comprehensive and non-fragmented view of the areas of knowledge; they wish to cultivate their capacity for observation and critical analysis; and they are interested in accessing job offers that require transversal knowledge and skills.

    Application for a place in the Degree

  • Graduate Profile

    Graduation Profile

    The general objective of the degree is to enable students to analyse the humanistic (social and cultural) dimension of science and technology, integrating the basic methods, instruments and techniques of both fields of knowledge. The degree offers an introduction to the fundamental concepts of the natural sciences and biosciences, in relation to their historical development and their epistemological and cultural dimension. The degree offers a comprehensive education designed to overcome the barriers that have been erected between scientific and humanistic knowledge by excessively severe specialisation in the successive post-compulsory educational stages.

    The Bachelor's Degree in Science, Technology and Humanities offers students a transdisciplinary vision of science and technology, as well as of the academic disciplines that contribute to their analysis and understanding. The programme integrates concepts and methods from the humanities in order to understand the development of science and technology and to be able to influence the social challenges they pose today. Students will recognise the areas of intersection between the sciences and humanities in fields such as language and cognition, knowledge of human beings and their environment, relations between society, knowledge and power, and the representation and circulation of knowledge. On the basis of this transversal and integrative training, the student will be able to develop and assist in the evaluation of projects on science in society, as well as to dynamise transdisciplinary teams capable of mediating between fields of knowledge. They will also be able to assess the social, economic and ethical impact of scientific and technological activity, and address gender inequalities in science from the humanities.
