Lectured in Portuguese
Teaching Type In person

The degree in Sociology lasts for three years (180 ECTS), with a solid training at the theoretical, methodological and courses specific to Sociology and offering the possibility of deepening specialised themes, through a wide range of optional courses.

The study plan includes multidisciplinarity, by opening to courses from other social sciences and from different disciplinary areas offered in other undergraduate programmes at the Iscte-University Institute of Lisbon.

In the framework of the plan, in addition to what has been mentioned, the following aspects stand out:

  • In the second semester of the second year of the degree, it is possible to  know other Social Sciences related with  Sociology;
  • In the third year of the degree there is the possibility of choosing  between the branches of Sociology and Public Policy;
  • Also in the third year, in the field of Sociology, students get in contact  with several domains of sociology, with three mandatory specialised sociologies in each semester;
  • In the last semester of the degree, an internship in Sociology is offered as an optional course, allowing direct contact with the labour market.

Some courses are taught both in Portuguese and in English, at different schedules. The option for a course in English represents an added value for the CV, in addition of enabling a deeper knowledge of the language.
