The data revealed the global perspective of the degrees regarding the incorporation of children’s rights in the university study plans analyzed. It is concluded that the presence is very scarce and confirms the need to incorporate this approach in the faculties of education. For this, recommendations are given to promote and facilitate the incorporation of the rights of children and global citizenship in the faculties of education.
