  • educate for a professional activity that may take place in all kinds of libraries, archives, documentation or information centres, as well as in the context of many organizations where the professional acts as an information manager, a content manager or an information analyst;
  • produce a professional able to apply knowledge, to solve problems in new or unknown environments and in the scope of generic and multidisciplinary contexts, to assess situations, to develop analysis and synthesis studies, to comunicate the conclusions to specialised and generic audiences, to be autonomous and independent in action, and to develop applied research projects in the Information Science area.
