The Social History Graduate Program  of the School of Teacher Education at the  Rio de Janeiro State University , São Gonçalo, is based on a concentration area - Social History of the Territory - and three lines of research: Territory, Power Relations and Social Movements; Territory, Identities, and Representations; and Historiography and History Teaching. Territory is understood as a social space that encompasses from local to global networks, from movements, agents, and institutions to forms of symbolic construction, representation, and appropriation, from Colonial Brazil to Republican Brazil. The course was created in 2006 and is recognized by the Ministry of Education with grade 4 in the last Triennial Assessment (2013/2016) of the Coordination for the Improvement of Higher Education Personnel (CAPES). It is intended for people with degrees in History and related fields.
