Third cycle of studies in History of Portuguese Art

The creation of a 3rd cycle of studies conducive to a PhD degree in History of Portuguese Art answers a depth and coherent education need in this branch of knowledge, an area which as been drawing a special attention from the Faculty of Arts of the University of Porto, through the Section of History of Art from the Department of Heritage Studies.

Based on a vast experience of PhD dissertation supervisions, the course seeks to frame the education of Doctors in History of Portuguese Art, who may aim a place in History of Art in the scientific context of the European university space.

On the other hand, the cycle of studies conducive to the PhD degree also answers an already implemented policy, of supervision of students from Brazilian universities, whose experience may be repeated with applicants to the PhD degree from other Portuguese-speaking countries.
