Area studies

In order to successfully obtain a Masters qualification, you will need to obtain a number of credits by passing individual modules. Most taught Masters will have a number of core modules which you must take and pass in order to obtain the qualification. The assessment of research Masters is almost always entirely by a single dissertation module or project.

Typical area study courses examine a region’s language and literature, history and geography, as well as political and cultural development. Unlike cultural studies, area studies also research the origins and migration patterns of local populations.

 

Portugal, officially the Portuguese Republic, is a country located in Southwestern Europe, on the Iberian Peninsula. Portugal is 900 years old, and even though it has a relatively small area, it played a crucial role in world history. Universidade do Porto is most popular by foreigners which consist of 11% international students.

Braga is one of the oldest cities in the northwest Portugal and has the oldest catholic archdiocese in the country. Being a large city in the municipality, two main universities have their headquarters here. These are Minho University and the Universidade Catolica Portuguesa.
