Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais

About the Institution

The present name – Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais (UFMG) – was not adopted until 1965. When the university was federalised, the Schools of Architecture, Philosophy, and Economics had already been integrated into UFMG. Afterwards, as part of its expansion and diversification, the university incorporated and created new units and schools: the Schools of Nursing (1950) and Veterinary Medicine (1961), the Minas Gerais Conservatory of Music (1962), and the Schools of Library (1962), Fine Arts (1963), and Physical Education (1969). In 1968, the organization of UFMG was reformed, which resulted in the division of the old School of Philosophy into various schools and institutes. Thus, the present School of Philosophy and Human Sciences, the Institutes of Biological Sciences and Exact Sciences, the Institute of Geo-Sciences, and the Schools of Letters and Education appeared.
