"The choice of degree was not an easy decision, I was quite undecided. However, when I researched a bit more on Social Work I realized that it was the right choice!
If you like to interact with people, if you are a supporter of human rights and want to promote change and make a difference in people's lives, choose Social Service.
FCH-Católica is a pioneer in Social Work degrees, it has excellent lecturers who are close to students and always available to help. This is a very complete degree in terms of curricular units and has a sizeable practical aspect through the internships, while it also offers tutorial teaching that provides students with individual support during the internship. I couldn't be happier! Don't hesitate to learn more about this degree!"

“I chose Social Service because I have always wanted to know the story behind each person and to develop abilities, skills and strategies to improve the lives of each one of them and the society in which they live. I chose FCH-Católica because I identify with the values that the faculty promotes and because of the excellent curricular program focused on the practical component and which invests in curricular internships.”

“Studying Social Work at this university was without a doubt the best decision I have made in my life. I am surrounded by lecturers who care about and help students on a daily basis by sharing their experiences, which encourage us to want to be more and to achieve more.

I am becoming increasingly aware of the countless social problems that exist in the world and of the need to act in order to achieve change and social justice for each and every one. It is important to realise that intuition and sensitivity to these social problems are not enough; that it is also necessary to learn the best techniques and methodologies, which we are taught in this degree, to provide the best solutions to the varied situations that we will be faced with.

To this end, I have also progressively gained a greater sense of the complexity of the Individual as a human being and of the value that he or she has in a way that is so particular to him or herself. It is this great value that I hope to be able to build upon in my actions as a future social worker, as someone who will work for and with others. I don’t believe I can save or change the world, but I believe I can change and transform someone else’s world. And that’s what gives me enormous encouragement to pursue what I believe to be my vocation!”

“Escolher o curso de Serviço Social foi a melhor escolha que alguma vez fiz. É um curso que me tem aberto os horizontes. Estimula-nos a ser pessoas ativas, criativas, reflexivas, dinâmicas e conscientes, uma vez que, vivemos num mundo repleto de problemas sociais que precisam de ser solucionados. Por isso, não podia estar mais feliz por ter escolhido a FCH para iniciar este meu percurso. Além de ser uma faculdade prestigiada a nível nacional e internacional, faz-me sentir em casa, permite-me ter um ensino de excelência e oferece-me um local de estágio qualificado e seguro. Apostar no meu futuro é apostar em Serviço Social na FCH. Só um curso de futuro aliado a uma universidade de excelência me dá as ferramentas necessárias para marcar a diferença.”

“Studying Social Work at Católica has opened my eyes to a society that increasingly needs us, social workers. I couldn’t be more thankful for the high quality of teaching, for the individuality with which each student is regarded and for the excellent manner in which we are prepared for the world of employment. This is a profession that can make a difference, that can change the world. As Anna Scheyett has stated, “Social workers are super-heroes” and this degree gives us the super-powers to make a difference in a world that needs us so desperately!”

Teresa Líbano Monteiro

"Over the past few years, my experiences doing volunteer work have made me want to change the world! However, I realized that volunteering is not enough to solve social problems. Gaining solid professional skills is essential and, therefore, I chose FCH-Católica as my HE institution, since it is an “ethically sound training project” that educates based on the essential principles of Social Work!"
