About EACH


The School of Arts, Sciences and Humanities (EACH) is one of the youngest schools at USP. It has a single organizational structure and is not divided into academic departments. The aim of the School is to prepare professionals and researchers to develop a complex view of society, culture, and science. This position is based on a serious commitment to the development of inter-, multi- and trans-disciplinary perspectives, as well as the pursuit of the innovation of knowledge. Two of the School’s key features are its Basic Cycle – a series of studies common to all undergraduate programs – and the establishment of strong connections with local low-income communities through research projects and extension activities. Every year, 1,020 students are admitted to undergraduate programs, allocated into morning, afternoon, and evening periods. The School currently has approximately 5,000 students in its undergraduate programs and 300 in graduate programs.

Research Groups

EACH is committed to promoting the development of approximately fifty research groups with interdisciplinary approaches and close ties to local realities. All the Research Groups are certified by the Brazilian National Council for Scientific and Technological Development (CNPq).


USP’s School of Arts, Sciences and Humanities has three laboratory buildings dedicated exclusively to teaching and research. The research laboratories, with a total area of 5,000m2 (one acre), reflect the idea of an interdisciplinary unit and are used according to the needs of general and specific areas, such as health, molecular biology, analytical chemistry, biodiversity, earth science, environmental technology, education, humanities and textiles.

The School also has nine computer labs for graduate and undergraduate students, equipped with wireless Internet connections in all buildings.


The School’s library covers an area of 5,000m2 (one acre), including tables for reading, research and study, and shelves dedicated to books and journals. The library allows students to consult and borrow from a collection of 47,000 books and scientific journals. 300,000 titles are also available through the 152 virtual electronic databases of the University.


The gym has two main purposes. It is used for teaching activities in the academic programs and is also available for athletic use by students and members of the local community. With over 3,000m2 (almost one acre), the gym has five courts for indoor soccer, handball, basketball, volleyball, and other athletic activities, and also serves as a laboratory for studies on human movement.

About CRInt

The EACH’s International Relations Office (CRInt) is responsible for the managing of student exchanges and academic cooperation agreements with foreign higher education institutions. Our activities began formally in January 2011 and since then we’ve committed to offer a service of excellence to the school’s academic community, interested in the opportunities of international exchange and in firming fruitful international partnerships, in order to contribute with our experience for the enlargement and enrichment of the internationalization of the University of São Paulo.

Created by means of Ordinance 001/11 2011 and renewed by Ordinance 14/20 of 2020 the CRInt was born with the purpose of assisting EACH to establish academic relations with top-level institutions of education and research; facilitate the exchange of students and the visit of professors and foreign researchers to EACH, as well as visits of professors and researchers of EACH to foreign institutions.

The formalization of the CRInt activities is recent, but activities regarding the internationalization of EACH are held since 2006, when we sent our first student on an exchange in the United Kingdom. Since then, we have helped more than 520 students of EACH to fulfill their dream of exchange and we have received more than 380 foreign students. In addition, it was celebrated strategic partnerships with approximately 64 international institutions.

These numbers promise to increase, considering we are a young School and we have a deep interest in expanding partnerships through academic agreements, espevially double degree and dual-title programs, which are priorities for the School.

We current employee efforts for the creation of a Language Center that meets the academic community of EACH. Since 2019, at USP Leste campus, every semester we are offering some vacancies for undergraduate students interested in taking English classes at the basic and intermediate levels. These actions are still beginning, but we hope to be able to offer English, Spanish and Portuguese classes for Brazilians and foreign students in the future.

Below, we share some kindly made testimonials from former exchange students of EACH.
