Half-Year Exchange to University of Lisbon, Portugal

Exchange Period: Fall Semester 2018

Information about University of Lisbon

The Faculty of Letters (Portuguese: Faculdade de Letras), FLUL, was created in 1911, although it’s predated by the Superior Studies in Letters (Curso Superior de Letras), created in 1859 by King Pedro V, from which all students and professors were transferred.

It remained on the grounds of the Superior Studies, an annex to the Academy of Science until 1957, when it changed to the current building, in the University City (Cidade Universitária). In 1975, a new pavilion was built to accommodate the large influx of students who arrived after the democratization of Superior Education in Portugal, a consequence of the Carnation Revolution. The pavilion, theoretically provisional, still stands today. In 2001, two new buildings were finished: one to accommodate new classrooms and the Computer Room, and the Library Building, which is now the second biggest library in Portugal.

Although the faculty’s graduation with most studies is modern languages and literature (Línguas e Literaturas Modernas) (which has a number of variants, including studies in Portuguese, Spanish, English, French, German and Italian), it also offers philosophy, history (and archaeology), African studies, Asian studies, European studies, cultural studies and classical studies (the degree itself is named classic languages and literature). It is also the former home of the degree in psychology. In the mid-1980s a new Faculty of Psychology was created to accommodate it.
