New University of Lisbon | NOVA School of Social Sciences and Humanities

Lisbon (Portugal)

Universidade NOVA de Lisboa  (UNL) was founded on the 11th of August 1973, and is the youngest of Lisbon’s three state Universities. Integrated within a framework of expansion and diversification of higher education, the University adopted a new model within the Portuguese system that stressed interdisciplinary approaches, technological developments while, at the same time, safeguarding offerings in traditional academic domains including medicine, sciences, arts and humanities. NOVA is a decentralised University; its Faculties and Institutes enjoy a great deal of autonomy. Currently NOVA has 20.077 enrolled students and 1.800 teachers and researchers. NOVA School of Social Sciences and Humanities (NOVA FCSH) is one of UNL`s Faculties mainly composed of highly qualified tenured professors, with a 98% rate of faculty members with PhDs.
