Information regarding COVID-19

Due to the outbreak of COVID-19, the Portuguese government has temporarily closed all schools and universities from March 12th 2020.

In light of this, ISCTE - Instituto Universitário de Lisboa will be suspending face-to-face classes and offering all programs remotely instead. For more information about this, please contact the university.

Program content

This programme consists of two semesters of lecture courses and four semesters for the development of the thesis with guided research work.

The first-year curriculum is structured around the current problems in school administration and management and the education system in general. Various classes provide seminar spaces for identifying topics and objects of research, observation of Portuguese and international research projects and dialogues between actors who intervene in real-world contexts.

The field of Public Policy, within the Department of Political Science and Public Policy, serves as the central framework for the programme, as its various aspects all rely upon the study of public organizations and their administration and management. In the second, third and fourth years, candidates are expected to develop their theses, which is accompanied by a research Seminar in school administration and management and an international conference cycle. These aim to complement and support the research process, contributing to the candidates’ exposure to a broader academic context and other analytic perspective while developing their thesis. This development will be facilitated scientifically at CIES-Iscte, a cutting-edge Centre in the áreas of Sociology and Public Policy, among others.
