Licentiate Degree in Pedagogy

The educational path of the licentiate in Pedagogy aims to qualify for work in educational institutions to work in the teaching of early childhood, early years of elementary school, pedagogical subjects of training courses in high school and special education, pedagogical and educational management, at the school and institutional level. It also qualifies the student to work in non-school and non-formal institutions. This professional training is part of the investigative experience, as well as reflection on political and cultural aspects of educational action. 

The course is offered in two time slots: 

  • Course 20 - Pedagogy – Full-Time, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. (created in 1974) 
  • Course 38 - Pedagogy – Evening Classes, from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. (created in 1991)


Interventions in society – beyond the classroom 

The proposal of the Unicamp Pedagogy undergraduate course, offered by the Faculty of Education (FE), in full-time and evening periods, is to provide the necessary training for students to intervene in the most diverse educational realities, whether formal or not. The purpose is to provide students with solid theoretical and practical training that enables them to work in society through education, whether in the classroom, in management positions or in any other areas that require political-pedagogical work. 

The Pedagogy curriculum is made up of a very diverse list of subjects ranging from the humanities field, with topics such as philosophy, psychology, sociology, history, anthropology, linguistics, to those dealing with the school curriculum – Portuguese language, mathematics, geography, history, sciences – even those that situate the role of the pedagogue in the context of educational legislation and policies, contributing to reflections in the classroom and about the classroom, as well as in the context of school planning and management.


Research and internships 

Along with theoretical discussions, the Faculty offers several oriented and complementary practical activities. With regard to internships, there are classes on teaching practice and supervised internships, with practical activities developed especially in schools, during and outside the study time at FE. It is noteworthy that students of both Pedagogy courses (full-time and evening classes) should be available for the internship in the daytime (in extra-class time), preferably in public institutions. 

Regarding research, the student has several alternatives at their disposal to start and get involved with the world of research. The two most common options are the development of studies linked to a project coordinated by the FE faculty through Course Paper Projects; and through the Course Conclusion Work, which provides an opportunity to develop individual research guided by Faculty of Education teachers. 


Teaching – the basis for an increasingly broad action 

The educator has an increasingly broad field of action, given the recognition of said professional's performance is not restricted to the school or the classroom, but rather expands to the work of, for instance, project planning, management, execution and evaluation in several social institutions.
