The NOVA University of Lisbon (NOVA) is identified as a university institution with internationally recognized research and quality teaching, progressively oriented towards second and third cycle education, capable of providing high levels of professional success to its students and providing relevant services to the community, national and international; a university with distinct elements at national level, both in training programmes and in pure and applied research, and with strategic partnerships of excellence.

The mission of NOVA, as a university institution that wishes to be a reference, is broken down as follows:

  • Competitive research at international level, specializing in interdisciplinary areas, including research aimed at resolution of the problems that affect society; 

  • Teaching of excellence, with a growing emphasis in the second and third cycles, but based on solid primary cycle levels, through competitive academic programmes at national and international level, praising merit as the essential measure of assessment;

  • A broader base of interinstitutional participation, geared towards integration of the various scientific cultures, with a view to creating innovative synergies for teaching and for research; 

  • The provision of quality services, both nationally and internationally, capable of making a relevant contribution to social development and to qualification of human resources, giving particular attention to the countries where Portuguese is spoken.

The Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities (Faculdade de Ciências Sociais e Humanas - FCSH) is an organic unit of NOVA University of Lisbon (NOVA) and a legal person under public law, endowed with scientific, pedagogical, administrative and financial autonomy, whose public service mission is to qualify citizens at the highest level. According to its statutes, “the Faculty of Social and Human Sciences of NOVA University of Lisbon is an institution dedicated to education, scientific research and cultural creation". The Faculty's own identity stems from the coexistence of social sciences with the humanities, allowing an unusual interdisciplinarity in the Portuguese higher education panorama.

FCSH was established in January 1977 by Decree-Law No. 464/77, following the development of the area of Human and Social Sciences then existing in NOVA. The Faculty began its activity on 2 January 1978.

Located near Lisbon city center, it hosts a total of 5321 students, 2837 in undergraduate programmes, 1568 in masters and 914 in PhD programmes. It has 307 professors, almost all holding PhD degrees. The guest professors are distinguished personalities in their area of expertise and most of them hold a PhD degrees.

Assuming the task of qualifying citizens to the highest level, FCSH offers 14 undergraduate programmes (three of them in after-work schedule), during which students can benefit from mobility initiatives (e.g.: Erasmus or CIEE - Council for International Educational Exchange), annually involving more than 350 students. Since 2010/11, graduated students can benefit from the Leonardo da Vinci Programme that provides professional traineeships across the European Union. In graduate training, FCSH offers 45 masters degrees and 21 PhDs, all provided in after-work schedule. Six masters degrees and six PhD’s are offered in association with ten national institutions and seven foreign institutions.

The excellence of Social and Human Sciences Research, one of the vocations of FCSH, is assured by 19 research centres assessed by international panels from Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia (FCT) – two of them rated as “Excellent” and 12 as “Very Good” – that gather more than 1200 researchers integrated in FCT. The Faculty also has 35 researchers included in Programa Ciência 2007/08, and it hosts 160 PhD’s scholarships and 80 postdoctoral researchers.

Since 2009 the Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities is actively involved in RUN - The Universidade Nova de Lisboa's Repository aiming to increase the visibility and the impact of its teacher’s and researcher’s scientific and academic outputs and to contribute to the joint effort of the national scientific community in the domain of open access to institutional repositories. The FCSH, through the RUN, makes available, in open access, doctoral and master thesis, book chapters, articles in national and international journals, among others.

The FCSH is located in Berna Avenue, in the centre of Lisbon, next to the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, and enjoys very good access to public transport. Based on barracks that belonged to military forces, the Faculty’s facilities are divided by B1 and B2 buildings (classrooms and departments), Tower A (classrooms and head office of the Languages Institute of NOVA University of Lisbon - ILNOVA]), Tower B -departments, and library Mário Sottomayor Cardia, boards of management, administrative services, canteen, Students Association and, since 2009, the ID building (Research and PhD degrees). This building, known as the former DRM (District Military Recruitment), has recently undergone a major change in order to be adapted to the objectives that it has been assigned for. In ID we find the core of the administrative support to PhD degrees, the research units associated with FCSH and classrooms for the PhD’s programmes. In addition to teaching areas (classrooms, lecture halls and auditoriums), the FCSH also holds some socializing places, a printing room and a large courtyard.
