Master’s & PhD in Education


The Program in Education focuses its research in the area of Education, aligning it with various analyses of models of teacher education in relation to educational practices, teaching and learning processes, and human development. It also studies educational management in the context of educational and social policies, as well as in relation to educational institutions. It investigates the multiple relationships between education, digital and virtual technologies and their didactic-pedagogical and cultural implications in the contemporary world. The mission is to act on the elucidation of issues connected to education, promoting both practical and theoretical perspectives on professional training and higher education, as well as on the production and dissemination of high-level research in Education. 

The program creates partnerships between city and state powers for teacher training in order to implement public policies in the educational field. The program also supports partnerships between professors and researchers from international institutions such as Utah State University and Maryland University – College Park, in the United States, Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona and Universidad de La Laguna in Spain, Universidad do Algarve and Universidad de Lisboa in Portugal, Université Lyon 1 in France, Universidad Del Atlántico in Colombia, and Universidad de Los Lagos in Chile.
