Architecture and Society

To meet the need to complement the offer in the area of Architecture and Construction with social responsibility, aimed at both students and alumni of various higher education institutions, as well as a wide audience of professionals, technicians from the public administration and associations, FAUP created the course “Architecture and Society”.
The target audience focuses especially on students and alumni from different scientific areas interested in the theme - Architecture, Urbanism, Geography, Social Sciences, Political Sciences, among others - from the host institution and similar institutions, as well as professionals, public administration technicians related to architecture or social action, members of associations and non-governmental organizations, among others.


The learning objectives include the acquisition of skills for critical reflection, work and action in terms of improving living conditions and the use of spaces, seeking to focus on topics such as social policies, housing, construction and acting in an emergency context.

Each edition may focus on different sub-themes within this scope of problems.

Professional Abilities

It is expected that this action will contribute so that the participants - coming from academic context, professional practice and organizational fabric - reinforce their skills of analysis of socio-spatial dynamics and intervention in the built environment.


Access will be ensured by application and registration. For admission, it will be necessary to be a student or holder of a higher education course, or alternatively demonstrate experience related to the subject of the course.

Numerus Clausus

Selection criteria and ranking of candidates
The ranking of candidates will be done by adding the weighted average of the previous training  (M * P) with the weight of the previous training, according to the following formula:
Classification = Σ (Pi * Mi) / ΣPi + ΣPi
Where M is the final average of the previous training, expressed on a scale of 0-20 and P is the Weight of the previous Training, according to the following weight scale:   

  • Degree after Bologna, P = 3     
  • Pre-Bologna degree, P = 5     
  • Integrated Master, P = 5     
  • Master, P = 2     
  • PhD, P = 4     
  • Higher Education attendance without degree, P = 0.5 per semester concluded with approval
