2. Pre-Requisites

There are no prerequisites. However, it is recalled that the knowledge required by the Territories in Transformation subject are those referring to the characters that affect cities and tourism, related to tangible and intangible heritage. These foundations are acquired in subjects that students have previously taken in different degrees related to the field of Humanities and Social Sciences.

3. Justification in the curriculum, relation to other subjects and to the profession

The university master's degree in Humanities, Culture and Society has an interdisciplinary character. For this reason, the subject of Territories in Transformation aims to expose the most significant recent processes that are marking urban dynamics and the behavior of tourism in interior spaces. Both of them are the result of the current cultural model and that has obvious relationships with the use of heritage and with public and private strategies. The territory, marked by accelerated processes of change in the last decade, has an increasingly determined urban vocation and tourism is gaining increasing prominence in its different modalities. The subject pays attention to theoretical and conceptual aspects that explain and help the understanding of its reality and behavior. It contemplates both general processes and local logics resulting from adaptation carried out in specific territories. These contents are developed in theoretical and practical classes.

Within the Master, it is directly related to the subject Territorial analysis methodologies, which completes it from the thematic and methodological point of view, as it is dedicated to cartography and population analysis for the study of the territory. It also connects with the contents of the compulsory subject Theory, methodology and resources of research in Humanities.

The subject is organized in two large sections; in the first one, called “Recent regional urban processes”, the dynamics operated in cities at the turn of the millennium are addressed; the second, entitled "Tourism and territory", deals with aspects related to the structure of the tourism system and its manifestations in incipient destinations.

There are relationships with other compulsory subjects of the study plan, which address aspects related to heritage in its connections with leisure and tourism, and socio-cultural processes that have marked the development of our cities. The instrumental and conceptual nature of this subject means that it complements and corresponds to the contents of other Master's subjects (compulsory or optional).
