Students can choose from a wide range of undergraduate courses taught in English, focusing on language, culture, social sciences, and humanities at the Universidade Catolica Portuguesa (UCP). Also available to us are numerous courses in “Politics, Philosophy, and Economics (PPE),” a new department and full degree program starting Fall 2021.
Even though the Global Education Office (GEO) is within Human Sciences, our students can take courses in select departments across the university. There is potential to expand course offerings across departments as our partnership grows.
UCP is especially strong in communication and culture studies and has many links with media organizations, arts organizations, and non-profits. They also have a robust social work program where students are required to engage in service learning opportunities.
Service learning options have a tentative outline of 10 hours/week (15 weeks) or 20 hours (15 weeks). For summer service learning opportunities, the weekly hourly commitments would be more intensive in order to fit the total number of service hours into 8 weeks.
