Social Work

04/05/2016 12:33

The UFSC Social Work Program aims to prepare students for the social work practice departing from a critical analysis of the social reality in order to confront social inequalities.

This requires the development of special skills to act for the strengthening of egalitarian and democratic practices in the interpersonal and institutional scope, while at the same time confronting the mechanisms of oppression and reproduction of subalternity. It is essential that the social worker graduated from UFSC masters the political strategies of social mobilization in order to place popular participation as means and end of the process of ensuring social rights and of designing and implementing public social policies.

It also requires mastery and application of techniques for designing, executing and evaluating plans, programs and projects in the social area, as well as of the dynamics of organizing, planning and managing benefits and services (i.e. visits, technical investigation, reports and information releases on Social Work matters), combining the professional specificity with the interaction in interdisciplinary teams. All this associated with the strategies of socialization of institutional information and of guidance to the population on identifying resources for meeting and defending their rights.

The program develops theoretically critical social workers committed to the achievements and struggles of the working class, able to politicize demands and to strengthen popular participation for the breaking down of political subalternization processes.

It is structured in three sections: i) theoretical and methodological foundations of social life, ii) socio-historical foundations of Brazilian society, and ii) foundations of the social work practice. In the early stages, students take general courses, such as: Socio-Historical Formation of Brazil, Introduction to Sociological Theory, and Political Science. In the second half of the program, they take specific courses on Social Work matters. The curriculum also includes a supervised internship that must be carried out along three consecutive semesters, starting from the sixth semester, and a final project (TCC), which must be developed in the last semester.

Social Sciences

04/05/2016 12:31

UFSC Social Sciences program prepares sociologists, anthropologists and political scientists not only to develop academic research and produce knowledge about social relations, but also to conduct surveys and consulting services in public or private companies.

The program’s core subjects are in the fields of Sociology, Anthropology and Political Science, but, since the early stages, the student may choose to focus on one particular social area, by taking specific courses in this area.

Different segments of society are object of research, including the political system, the public policies, the social institutions and the business system, as well as the social movements and the socio-cultural diversity. Research is carried out in specialized places, such as the Image and Sound Research Laboratory, where educational videos are also produced for the teaching and learning of social sciences.

The program offers two types of degree: one with focus on teaching (licenciatura) and the other focused on research and other career possibilities (bacharelado). For the second degree type, the program focuses on research, consulting, advice, or even on public and private policy management. In the final semester, the student develops a final paper in the form of a dissertation. The teaching degree, in its turn, enables students to work in primary and secondary schools. For that, the student teacher takes pedagogical courses throughout the program and completes a teaching practicum in an educational institution.

Railway and Subway Engineering – Joinville Campus

04/05/2016 12:28

The Joinville Campus’ Railway and Subway Engineering program prepares students for a career in subway and railway project, operation, management and maintenance. More specifically, railway and subway engineering graduates may work in areas such as: railway and subway dynamics; project and maintenance of rolling stock (locomotives, wagons and passenger cars); materials for railway and subway transportation systems; railway and subway communication, signaling and operation systems; permanent way; railway and subway accident prevention and investigation; and management of railway/subway enterprises.

The subway and railway sector has received increased attention in Brazil due to the need for sustainable development. New investments in the expansion of railway lines have ensured the recent growth of the railway industry. Moreover, the concern about urban mobility has demanded investment in new subway lines, surface trains, monorails and high-speed trains. Many companies are installed or being installed in Brazil to promote rolling stock projects and new technologies and solutions for this sector.

Psychology

04/05/2016 12:27

Established in 1978, The Psychology Program was the first one to be offered in the state of Santa Catarina, with an extensive experience in teaching, research and outreach. Its comprehensive curriculum enables students to learn about different theoretical contributions that give support to the professional practice in various areas and fields of work in Psychology.

This full-time program offers two types of degrees: one focused on teaching (licenciatura) and the other on the practice of psychology (bacharelado). Its current curriculum was established in 2010 and is divided into two modules: one comprised of basic subjects, corresponding to the first three years of study, and the other of professional subjects, set in the final years.

Students take practical courses since the early stages of the program, through the introductory internships. During the professional module, they take more in-depth internships, with a more intense weekly workload.

The professional module provides students with the opportunity to get further knowledge in at least two of the following areas of focus: 1. Health and Clinical Processes; 2. Work, Organizations and Management; 3. School/Education; 4. Community Processes and Collective Action.

UFSC Psychology Program has several laboratories, research centers and a Psychological Care Service (SAPSI), which offers free services to the local community and is a place for internships, research and outreach. As for other fields of intervention, the program has a solid partnership with institutions in the region (schools, hospitals, non-profit organizations, companies, etc.) and contributes largely to the process of consolidation of the new mental health model in Brazil.

Since 2010, the program was recognized by the Ministry of Health and Education as a Training Reference Center for the Unified Health System (SUS). It prepares students for teamwork in different care units of SUS: health centers; medium complexity care in psychosocial care centers or psychotherapies; hospital settings; urgencies and emergencies.
