PHD in History, Politics and Cultural Assets

PRESENTATION

By creating an academic Master’s degree and a PhD in history, FGV CPDOC invested in training professionals who are capable of both producing knowledge and training new knowledge producers, through an intense dialogue with the social sciences. The creation of the courses was guided by the perspective of broadening and diversifying the scope of graduate studies in history, as opposed to competing with traditional programs that make up the offering of courses at the regional level. Their thematic emphasis on political history, focusing on Republican Brazil, coupled with an analytical preoccupation with cultural assets and, more recently, urban challenges and international relations make the courses a unique case. This particularity is intensified by the strength of interdisciplinarity has in them, which is justified by the vision that has guided the FGV CPDOC proposal since its inception, namely that the current dynamism of history is largely due to the dialogue it has been able to promote with the social sciences.

FGV CPDOC’s academic Master’s and PhD courses are tuition-free, and the Graduate Program in History, Politics and Cultural Assets (PPPHPBC) has been increasing the number of scholarships awarded by funding agencies, which indicates its recognition. In 2015, in the context of the Graduate Studies Support Program for Private Education Institutions (PROSUP/CAPES), we received five PhD and three Master’s degree scholarships. In the scope of CNPq, another two Master’s degree scholarships are intended for students of the program. In addition to these regular scholarships, some students receive scholarships linked to research projects developed by the Program’s professors.

The last years have been marked by the consolidation of the PPHPBC internationalization process. This effort is translated, more generally and permanently, in the establishment of agreements with foreign research and teaching institutions in which different initiatives are developed: collaborative research projects, professor and student mobility, promotion of joint events, and publications. The established agreements are published on the CPDOC website. In 2018, FGV was awarded the CAPES Institutional Internationalization Program (PrInt), valid for three years, with the aim of deepening the institution’s internationalization process through foreign mobility of students and researchers, granting of sandwich PhD scholarships, and partnerships with foreign universities, among other actions. 

“Due to the continuation of an uncertain scenario in relation to the future of the COVID-19 pandemic, in 2022 post-graduate disciplines will be offered in a remote format. If a return to hybrid teaching (remote and on-site) is possible, PPHPBC will seek to create conditions to ensure the health safety of professors, staff, and students. However, in 2022 if classes occur in a hybrid manner, there will be no requirement for physical presence in the classroom.”

For students who do not have a background in History, the subject History and Social Theory, required for the Master’s degree, is strongly recommended.
