Short Bio

Ana Maria Pires Correia is Associate Professor and Dean of the Faculty of Psychology and Education. 

Born and raised in Portugal, she developed her career as a schoolteacher in Portugal and Macau before joining the University of Saint Joseph (USJ) in 2010. She holds a PhD in Education, summa cum laude, from the Inter-University Institute of Macau-Catholic University of Portugal, a Master of Education from the Inter-University Institute of Macau, a Teacher Certificate from the Macau Youth and Education Bureau, and a Licentiate in Philosophy from the University of Lisbon.

She was one of the developers of the educational programmes at USJ, contributing to the creation of the Bachelor of Education, and leading the creation of the Post-Graduate Diploma in Education, both accredited by the Macau Education and Youth Bureau as a teacher training qualification.

She was also devised the Master of Education with a specialization in inclusive and special needs education, the first post-graduate programme to be implemented in this area in Macau.

At USJ she has been lecturing graduate and post-graduate courses such as Principles of Education, Classroom Management and Leadership, Social Science Research Methods, Family and Childhood in Contemporary Cultures, Psychology of Gender Roles, and Integrative Research Seminars. She has co-organized and participated in conferences and public lectures internationally, and has been involved in school evaluations.

Her research interests originally focused on educational leadership and gender studies in education, but later evolved to include culturally responsive teaching and inclusive education.
