  • Knowledge, abilities and skills to be acquired

    Knowledge, abilities and skills to be acquired

    The graduate student in Political Science acquires skills that equip them with a solid theoretical and practical preparation for the wide range of vocational opportunities that the rediscovery of the political-democratic-party system after the 25th of April of 1974, necessarily bears in the contemporary Portuguese society and the "Lusophone Space". The graduate student acquires general skills concerning the basic essential knowledge pertaining to the functioning of Public Institutions and the different groups that participate in the running of the same, as well as in understanding the attitudes and behaviours of citizens. The graduate student in Political Science and International Relations is a professional who, individually or as part of a team, is able to observe, characterize and evaluate the components that define certain socio-political contexts and intervene, directly or indirectly, in their modification. In more formal contexts, the graduate student in Political Science can be included in administrative or management bodies at national, regional, local and international level (in terms of Europe and the Lusophone Space).
  • Objectives


    The objective of the Bologna Declaration is to improve the quality of higher education across Europe, during the next 10 years. Thus, this document has highlighted the importance of involving students in constructing a project of lifelong education, focusing mainly on the development of both personal and social skills that will enable adaptability to changes and the challenges ahead. The licentiate degree accepted the Bologna challenge and adapted its EP to these principles and launched a major overhaul of the study and teaching methods in force. The 1st licentiate degree in Political Science and International Relations has a duration of three years or six semesters. It has a core of mandatory courses that are denominated as Majors and gives the students the opportunity to complete their training by choosing optional subjects and they may choose to include Minors from other scientific areas. It presents 4 Minors to students from other courses in Political Science, International Relations, Public Administration and Policy and Psychoanalysis.
