Description of PPGSS

UFPE's Graduate Program in Social Work (PPGSS-UFPE) was created in 1979 and integrated into the Master's and Doctorate courses in Social Work. It received a grade of 6 in CAPES latest evaluation. The program's area of concentration is “Social Work, Social Movements and Social Rights", which are linked to 6 (six) research topics. The permanent faculty is made up of 12 permanent professors and 4 collaborators. PPGSS-UFPE's international position comes through research and joint publications, the participation of foreign visiting professors, postdoctoral studies overseas, doctorate scholarships abroad and cooperation projects in Africa, Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean. It maintains an Interinstitutional Doctorate (DINTER) class in Picos, in the countryside of Piauí, approved by CAPES in 2013 and with 14 students enrolled. PPGSS promotes short-term academic activities aligned with the offer of semestrial courses on topics relevant to on-going research, such as lectures, workshops, seminars, mini-courses with those outside IES in the country and abroad, with the presence of invited external participants. PPGSS-UFPE is socially and academically recognized at the regional, national and international levels through interinstitutional Master's and Doctoral programs, OAE programs for student exchange, international missions for study and research, support for international student mobility, co-tutorship systems, along with the conducting of post-doctoral internships by its permanent professors in national and international IES.
