The reform in Higher Education teaching implemented in Spain during the last decade through the implantation of new study programs has generated, besides unquestionable benefits, a set of weakness of a singular nature. Precisely this empiric study has shown, by means of the classificatory power of multidimensional scaling and taking as object of study the Faculty of Sciences of Education of the University of Granada, the existence of disagreements. The most serious disagreements are related to structural aspects and not to the educative dimension. The result of this research reinforces the hypothesis that changes at Spanish University teaching have mainly consisted in a structural review of courses (timetables, management, subdivision of subjects...) and it has not taken into account new curricula implantation.

Keywords: New Study Programs, Multidimensional Scaling
