Communication Sciences Department
A new curriculum for a new time!
The world does not stop and UAL accompanies it. As we know that the media sector in Portugal and in the world is constantly changing, we renewed our syllabus. From now on we offer practical courses in all semesters with the aim of promoting multi-faceted training in the fields of journalism, public relations, advertising, and marketing.
This new initiative responds best to a labour market that is increasingly demanding and opens doors to graduates to work in any of these areas of communication.
We are located in the heart of Lisbon, within walking distance of Marques de Pombal, with new television and radio studios that include modern newsrooms and digital equipment.
We are here but also worldwide, thanks to the portal UALMedia (www.ualmedia.pt), a multimedia platform updated daily by our Communication Sciences students and showcasing their work.
Guided by lecturers and qualified technicians, in our department students acquire experience and become familiar with professional routines in a real work environment, thus helping them integrate better in a competitive job market.
The new syllabus balances theory and practice, teaching students to think and also to do it ... right from the first semester.
The faculty has been strengthened, receiving new lecturers with PhD degrees and professional experience, dedicated full-time to their students.
There is also a strong focus on research, reflected in the creation of the Master Degree in Applied Communication - Applied Studies in Journalism. This 2nd cycle offer will be supplemented in the coming years by other areas such as Advertising and Marketing, among others.
For us, restructuring is to improve. But we remain faithful to the rigour and quality that has characterized us since1989 when we opened doors for the first time.
