Degree pre-requisites

Duration: 3 years/6 semesters.

Students must perform 180 credits: 120 credits based in the compulsory curricular units, 30 credits to be chosen in a set of elective options and 30 credits undertaken in free-elective options or in a minor of another scientific area. Every semester, the student may not sign up for more than 30 credits, respecting the precedence when these have been set. At the beginning of each semester, students will be advised of the curricular units to carry out in order to appropriate them to their academic career.

The undergraduate students can still benefit from the different mobility programmes in which FCSH/NOVA participates as Erasmus +, Almeida Garrett exchange programmes, among others, and participate in research within the research units of the Faculty.

Access to other courses

Completion of the Licenciatura degree allows the holder to apply for Masters programmes or other post-graduate courses including those which do not confer a degree.
