The respective curricular structures seek to balance theory and practice within educational parameters that lead the student to improve and acquire indispensable skills and competences from an ethical and technical point of view.
In the last 20 years, the Journalism course was among the five most sought-after courses at USP in terms of candidate/place. Publishing students have early professionalization and work in the most important companies in the area during the course. All are encouraged to exchange with foreign universities. On the other hand, the Department welcomes, annually, many students coming from Europe.
