Lusófona University’s Master’s in Educational Sciences accredited by A3ES for 6 years
The Master’s Degree in Educational Sciences (MCE) at Universidade Lusófona (UL), University Centre of Lisbon, has received accreditation from A3ES for another 6 years of operation, the maximum accreditation period in an evaluation cycle.
The External Self-Assessment Commission (CAE) gave the master’s programme a very positive overall assessment, characterising the teaching staff as “highly qualified, experienced and stable, with the majority of teachers dedicated full-time to the institution”. In addition to the quality of the teaching staff, the diversity of publications by the professors was also highlighted, as well as the co-operation between the institution’s professors and existing international relations.
The MCE, which has been part of the UL Institute of Education’s training offer for more than 20 years, has a vast amount of experience in the basic quality of this training and has therefore had a large number of international students from countries such as Brazil, Angola, Cape Verde and Guinea-Bissau.
UL’s MCE programme is a training opportunity for all those who want to understand people’s and communities’ educational journeys and find and build appropriate responses to current contexts. The current structure of the course offers 2 areas of specialisation in addition to the general training common to all of them: a) specialisation in Public Policies and Educational Contexts and b) specialisation in Adult Education and Community Intervention.
It is intended that this master’s degree, in both specialisations, will enable the development of projects in both academic and non-academic contexts. The latter in the context of projects in the field of action-research in close relationship with the community, taking advantage of the protocols already established in the context of the Degree in Educational Sciences-Social Education.
Applications for this course for the 2023-24 academic year are open until 11 October 2024.
