The Postgraduate Program in Architecture and Urbanism was launched in 2007 at the Centre for the Arts of the Federal University of Espírito Santo (UFES). It trains researchers, teachers and professionals who have cities as their object of study and are able to respond to the challenges that the area of architecture and urbanism faces nowadays. The program pursues the articulation of theory and practice in architecture and urbanism, also drawing on the expertise of related disciplines to find innovative and technological solutions to contemporary problems.
The program concentrates on Territorial Impacts and the City, a field which views original territory as an important factor constituting the cultural dimension of the Brazilian city. It covers studies related to the interventions in cities that had their urban design determined by port activities, by historical and geographical conditions of the existing landscape and by strategies of urban management. The policies for the articulation of social agents resulting from urban management are focused upon, in view of their socio-economical, anthropological, technical and cultural embeddedness as well as of the diversity of Brazilian society.
Since its launching, the program has awarded 68 master’s degrees and has 55 students currently enrolled.

The program is based in Vitória-ES, offering the course of MA in Architecture and Urbanism since 2007 and has an academic qualification profile certified by CAPES, receiving 3 on its last evaluation.

The program already has 76 masters and counts with 45 students regularly enrolled, all of them being masters.
