On the 6th of June, 2022, the University of Saint Joseph (USJ) signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Escola de Comunicações e Artes da Universidade de São Paulo in Brazil. This agreement between the School of Communication and Arts and the Faculty of Arts and Humanities aims for academic cooperation in the area(s) of arts, communications and humanities to promote the exchange of teachers/researchers, graduate students, undergraduate students (with mutual recognition of undergraduate studies) and members of the technical and administrative team of both respective institutions. One of the projects already designed to be launched in 2023 is the Lusophone Academic Radio for Scientific and Cultural Dissemination, aiming to establish a network of radio poles in the different lusophone countries, starting in São Paulo and Macau, involving professors, students and local communities informing about their academic research and development projects as well as their ancestral cultural traditions.
The School of Communications and Arts (ECA) of the University of São Paulo (USP) was created in 1966, initially under the name of School of Cultural Communications (ECC), and received its current name in 1969, when it started offering university education in the Arts areas. With more than five decades of dedication to teaching, research, culture and extension, ECA stands out for the training of countless nationally and internationally renowned professionals, providing Brazil with a significant number of specialists to work in the areas of media and culture, in artistic and cultural institutions, museums, major media and digital networks. ECA has a structure comprising eight teaching departments and a technical school, 14 regular graduation courses – between undergraduate and six graduate programmes. It also has about 60 research groups, centres and laboratories that add up to the largest scientific production ever generated in its areas of knowledge in the country.
