Masters in Sociology
We define our mission at the intersection of the purposes of reproduction and up-to-date disciplinary knowledge that legitimise us as an institution. Such are the production of knowledge that meet social needs and expectations, respecting the collective values that motivate us to be a Public Service, as well as the individual values that promote the dignity of the members of the Society we live in.
It is this spirit of mission that defines the aims and objectives that guide our educational program, aiming to produce, organize, operationalise and convey knowledge, as well as procedures and tools necessary to understand and act on the different dimensions, aspects, areas and significant components societies are built upon.
