This Postgraduate and Masters course proposes a programme in advanced training in local and regional studies centred on the History of Portugal from a multi-disciplinary perspective, with particular attention paid to the modern period. Considering the tendency in recent times towards the construction of European unity, it seems essential that knowledge on the era preceding this model should be improved. At a local and regional level, economic reasons (cultural tourism), administrative reasons (issues related with the borders of boroughs), the defence and enjoyment of a common heritage (gastronomic, material, written, architectural, artistic, musical, folklore, etc.), all reinforce the need to study local historical events and contexts. It is therefore considered essential that professionals, regardless of their previous academic background, be prepared to recognise, process and study written materials on the issues mentioned above.
The Masters Degree in Local and Regional Studies qualifies the holder to exercise professional activities in the following fields:
