Since the first edition of the Master's Degree (2000), the Interdisciplinary Classroom Module has sought to provide a space in which teachers and students can study in depth the issues under study in the different areas of knowledge of the MMF. The aim of the face-to-face programme is to cross the boundaries between subjects and disciplines, to unite theory and practice, academic and professional world, so that students are better prepared in their own working world and can better respond to social demands in a globalised world multidisciplinary .

In this way, we have managed to adapt this classroom teaching modality to make it a part of core topic for the fulfilment of the general objectives of the Master's, the loyalty of student and the intensification of the students' professional relations (intra and inter-promotions).

The Interdisciplinary Presential I and II are convened at the end of each academic year and are developed through a set of interdisciplinary seminars of applied research designed specifically for each course with the collaboration of the Master's academic staff and the resource to different methodologies: round tables, conferences, case studies, debates, etc. Through these resources, the aim is to foster the ability to communicate in a constructive way in different social and cultural environments and to encourage critical capacity and the ability to apply theory to particular cases.

The attendance to the "Presencial Interdisciplinar I" and the "Presencial Interdisciplinar II" is compulsory and is subject to a daily control during the development of the presential courses.

The subjects "Presencial Interdisciplinar I" and "Presencial Interdisciplinar II" cannot be validated by work or any other academic activity other than the personal attendance to them.

The face-to-face programme is committed to the student, as the protagonist of their training, boosting their motivation and creativity, and encouraging the teamwork, so that all of this constitutes a truly significant academic experience.

First year students and second year students follow their own specific training programme.

The innovation and topicality of the subjects studied in the on-site course do not imply improvisation. They are coordinated by the MMF Management, with the presence and active participation of all the Master's subjects.

The contents of the different classroom teaching activities are designed each year according to the following criteria:

a) questions of goal interest arising in the development of the on-line courses, or proposed by the students

b) topical and impactful issues related to the subjects of the Master's programme

c) topics agreed upon by the Management and the various areas of the Master's programme

(d) the time requirements of each activity.

The Master's Management puts special emphasis on the appropriate distribution of time for each of the proposed activities and their thematic sequence, so that the classroom programme is not only orderly but also, and especially, coherent and agile in its thematic sequences.

IN CONCLUSION, the aim of the face-to-face programme is to cross the boundaries between subjects and disciplines, to unite theory and practice, academic and professional worlds, so that students are better prepared in their own working world and can better respond to social demands in a globalised world multidisciplinary .

Through attendance, the aim is also to offer an academic time and space to foster a real sense of university promotion among students, to deepen and consolidate professor-student relationships, to intensify students' personal and professional relationships and finally, and very importantly, to enjoy the academic environment, the facilities and other services offered by the University of Navarra, of which they are students.
