About

Profile of the programme The Course of Sciences of Culture, in accordance with the UNESCO memorandum recommendations for its promotion, as its primary goal aims to create value and supply the students with a sound interdisciplinary theoretical training, thus articulating diverse scientific areas with a precise orientation: to integrate the indispensable traditional knowledge with the challenges of the new humanities. Adding to this basic theoretical training there is an intentionally practical dimension, of projective nature, oriented towards the cultural phenomena plural approaches in the vaster context of the creative industries
In agreement with these objectives, there are three trends which support this studies’ programme: culture as a reflection object, as a creative incentive and as a social activity. The existing core subjects such as philosophy, history and literature are thus justified, to which are added communication, cinema, design and management, providing an undeniable novelty for the training.
Key learning outcomes Due to the thematic resources of its study object, the University of Beira Interior Sciences of Culture Course was thought and designed according to a precedence principle of the curricular units, where first year’s subjects and some of the second year supply the students with the necessary historic and cultural basis for the conceptualization and project execution specific of the second and third year units. Such a thematic range which justifies both scientific and pedagogically the articulation between subjects, and finds expression in the definition of optional training paths by means of curricular units optional sets (three among twelve possible ones) which complete the bulk of compulsory subjects – starting at the beginning of the second year’s first semester and in each of the subsequent semesters – furthermore, in a concrete and precise way, in the Project curricular unit, during the student’s last semester of the formative path in which he/she is summoned to materialize a thought or conception of cultural intervention, by taking advantage of established protocols and partnerships with cultural institutions of the region and elsewhere. The fact that each student should responsibly choose part of his/her academic path, guaranteed as it previously was by dint of the scientific and pedagogic core units, expresses an option of the teaching-learning process focused on the student, and is likewise an incentive to his/her process of autonomy, to the carrying out of his/her studies and to the continuous and autonomous qualification throughout life. Thus, considering its briefly characterized objectives, the Course of Sciences of Culture makes available a number of skills while preparing its students to: Recognise the homo cultus historical and polysemous nature and identify diversified cultural notions and practices;Theoretically support and critically reflect about the notions of ‘culture’ and‘sciences of culture’ and the respective phenomena, considering the complexity of their processes, the plurality of their contexts and the specificity of their values; Creatively conceive, judiciously analyse, and adequately justify research projects in the areas of creation, programming and cultural diffusion; Implement,organise, animate, lead and intervene in cultural initiatives by integrating multidisciplinary teams and networking by means of high conceptual and operational versatility; Master the various means and techniques of expression – oral, written, audio-visual, and multimedia – and use them in projects social, economic and creatively relevant.
