Built in the former textile mill "Ernesto Cruz", as it is known among students and the population of Covilhã, the Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities (FCSH) is located in Pole IV and houses the Departments of Management and Economics, Psychology and Education, Sociology and even Sport Sciences, which is next to the UBI’s sports infrastructures, in Pole II.
Equipped with the latest technologies, the FCSH focuses on internal and external communication through its Web site, allowing prospective students to meet "their" School, in particular the educational and research structures, and provides abroad, in particular to national and international current and future partners, an overview of the activities that are developed in the Faculty.
It is a priority of the FCSH to promote an intercultural learning and teaching process and to increase the involvement of students in research activities from the early years. Simultaneously, internships and professional learning opportunities are created by the entities with which protocols of cooperation have been developed in the region, in the country and abroad.
The Faculty works to be able to face the challenges of the 21st century, in particular with special concern in developing its students and teachers’ cross-cutting abilities and qualities. We want to train leaders in the several domains of our intervention, particularly in the emerging teaching areas.
Today the Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities is a reference in its action areas, bringing together the best conditions to learn, teach and investigate.
