Journalism

20/03/2020 18:14

UFSC Journalism Program prepares students for a career as reporters, photographers, editorial designers, writers or editors in newspapers, magazines, radio, TV, internet, news agencies and press offices, either employed, as a freelancer or as an entrepreneur. Since the early stages, the student is in contact with the practice of journalism through technical courses held in the laboratories of Radio Journalism, TV Journalism,  Photojournalism, Writing, Online Journalism and Infographics.

For four consecutive years (1999-2002), the program obtained grade A, the highest score in the country, in the Provão, a national exam that used to be carried out by the Ministry of Education to assess undergraduate programs. Due to its growing concern with the specificities of journalism teaching and practice, the program abandoned its former name, “Social Communication – Journalism qualification”, thus making it simpler and more suitable to the degree offered.

The curriculum offers a number of theoretical courses which ground the professional practice. This includes: Journalism Ethics; Aesthetics and Mass Culture; Theory and Research Methodology in Communication; Corporate Communication; Media Relations; Communication Policies; Theories of Communication and of Journalism; among others. The program has partnerships with private companies, like the regional TV network RBS-SC, and corporate entities, such as the National Federation of Journalists (FENAJ). These partnerships allow students to establish contact with professional journalists and expand their training. The program also has an internship agreement with the Globo TV network, located in Rio de Janeiro.

As a way of experiencing the practice even further, UFSC Journalism students can engage in outreach projects and earn scholarships in the various fields of journalism. In radio journalism, the student can participate in an online radio station, Rádio Ponto UFSC. In the internet, students also produce articles for the website Cotidiano, which brings news about UFSC and the Brazilian higher education. The lab newspaper Zero is another possibility for journalism practice offered by the program at UFSC.

The program’s facilities also include professional TV and radio studios, photography, infographics, computer and writing laboratories, and the New Media Laboratory, where websites are produced and experiences with new technology resources for communication are tried out.

International Relations

20/03/2020 18:12

Recent transformations in the international setting have brought important challenges for higher education institutions. Since the end of the Cold War, a series of events have marked the practice of international relations. These events are linked to the increase in trade and capital flows, the growing competition for non-renewable material resources and the large-scale geopolitical changes, such as the creation of new national states, the integration processes and the territorial conflicts. In order to face these phenomena, both governments and civil society organizations are demanding a professional with specific academic training in the field of international relations. This training takes an interdisciplinary approach, bearing in mind the nature of the phenomena involved.

The International Relations Program aims to promote technical competence in the various fields of international relations, with focus on the aspects of international economic relations. This emphasis is motivated by the increasing insertion of Brazil into the global economy and by the specific characteristics of the state of Santa Catarina, which has a significant group of exporting companies, a transport logistics geared to foreign trade and a privileged location inside Brazil’s major process of regional integration, namely Mercosur.

International Relations graduates can work in government agencies, public or private companies, and international organizations. Theirentry into in the job market is associated primarily to the demands concerning the international economic relations.

History

20/03/2020 17:53

Historians are the only scholars concerned with society that deal systematically with time. They understand and critically analyze all the social, political, economic and cultural transformations from the perspective of time. History students and professionals must have an investigative spirit and a taste for reading.

UFSC History program enables students to combine classical methods and theories with new practices for knowledge production and social criticism. For this, it offers a set of theoretical-methodological courses and promotes the discussion on these issues throughout the whole program. The program also prepares students for a teaching career: by the 4th semester, they can choose to pursue a teaching degree.

History students will have access to a number of laboratories, where they can engage in research and outreach projects, do internships, and earn a scholarship from the Scientific Initiation Program or the Tutorial Education Program (PET-História). These include laboratories on: Public History; History of Health and Society; History of Africa; Medieval Studies; Contemporary Society, Politics and Culture; Gender and History; Archeology; Social History of Work and Culture; Indigenous History; Immigration, Migration and Environmental History; History and Art; Global Ancient History; Asian Histories; History of Latin America; and History of Colonial America.

Although the program begins with courses in Ancient History and progresses chronologically through Medieval, Modern, and Contemporary History, students are encouraged to connect their studies to present-day issues from the outset. Courses in the history of Brazil, the state of Santa Catarina, America and Africa are also included, as well as pedagogical courses, which are important for teacher training.

History graduates can work as university professors or primary and secondary school teachers (if they hold a teaching degree), conduct research in public and private institutions, give historical advice for film productions and other projects, as well as work in cultural tourism or in any project related to memory and heritage.
