The Faculty of Psychology and Education Sciences is the school, within the University of Porto, where teaching and researching in the fields of Psychology and Education Sciences is carried out.
The Faculty has initiated its activities in 1980 and nearly 2000 students attend its graduate degree, integrated master, postgraduate, masters and doctoral courses, having reached a significant implementation in fields such as education, justice, health, central and local public administration, socio-cultural animation, work in companies, among others.
Additionally FPCEUP provides continuing education programs that aim to answer the requirements of professional, civic and cultural training that emerge throughout life in contemporaneous societies.
Beyond education, FPCEUP is engaged in research and development activities as well as in rendering services to the community through its research institutes and centres.
An important role is also played by internationalization, not only due to the increasing number of projects and protocols established in partnership with foreign institutions, but also due to the increasing number of students and the exchanging of lecturers and researchers in the scope of cooperation and mobility programs.
With more than 30 years of activity, FPCEUP projects itself towards the future as being more committed to an education with quality and to promote an institutional culture addressed to research and social progress.
