|Mission:||The Department of History, Political and International Studies (DHEPI), accomplishing the statutory rules of the Faculty of Arts of University of Porto, corresponds to a broad area of knowledge, with aims, methodologies and specific research techniques. According to Statutes’ art. 37th, the following goals will be granted:
As part of its mission, the DHEPI ensures the activities of the Undergraduate course in History, as well as the course units of this field of study included in other Undergraduate courses (Archaeology, History of Art, Information Science, European Studies and Geography).
It also covers a variety of Postgraduate courses: Masters in Local and Regional Studies, Modern History, History and Education, Integrated Master and PhD in Medieval and Renaissance Studies, and Specializations Course in History Teaching. The Department is also responsible for the supervision of PhD students in History. In addition, the faculty staff of DHEPI ensures collaboration with other Postgraduate courses at FLUP.
In light of the reform model set out in the Bologna Statement, all courses are in the process of adaptation: the new formats will take effect in 2007-2008, assuring that students of the Undergraduate course still in force experience a smooth transition to the curriculum of the year following its implementation.
Research activities by lecturers of the DHEPI are carried out in specific research units – Centre for Historical Research, Institute of Modern History, Institute of Contemporary History, Institute of Historical Documentation –, which also welcome external researchers with similar scientific interests. In turn, some lecturers of the DHEPI develop research work in units outside the Department. The expression of such activity is visible in works by authors, collaboration in journals and collective works. On its part, the DHEPI ensures the publication of the Journal of the Faculty of Arts – History, which is now in its third series.
The DHEPI develops activities for several different institutions and promotes protocols with other analogous universities.
The logistics centre of the DHEPI is in Torre B inside the building of the Faculty of Arts, located in Via Panorâmica (Porto), where the Department services are based (secretariat, library, services), as well as offices for teachers.
Organized in May 2000, the DHEPI corresponds to the current configuration of the former History Course (formerly Group 4), created with the resurgence of the Faculty of Arts of the University of Porto (Decree-Law 45.864, of 17/08/1961, Minister Manuel Lopes de Almeida), emerging as one of two courses then set up (together with Philosophy).
Running continuously since 1962/63 until very recently, Group 4 of FLUP has already passed four decades of existence, nowadays as the Department of History.
