The Faculty of Psychology and Educational Sciences is the division of the University of Porto in which teaching and research within the fields of Psychology and Education Sciences is carried out.
The Faculty opened in 1980 and currently there are nearly 2000 students attending for their graduate, integrated master’s, postgraduate, master’s and doctoral degrees. Students have found success working in fields such as education, social justice, health, central and local public administration, socio-cultural development, and many different companies.
Additionally, FPCEUP provides continuing education programs that aim to respond to the requirements of professional, civic and cultural training that emerge in today’s society.
Beyond education, FPCEUP is engaged in research and development activities, as well as providing services to the community through research institutes and centers. Internationalization plays an important role at FPCEUP, not only due to the increasing number of projects and partnerships with foreign institutions, but also due to the increasing number of foreign students and the exchange of lecturers and researchers through mobility programs.
With more than 30 years of history, FPCEUP looks towards the future with a commitment to quality education and the promotion of an institutional culture of research and social progress.
