COUTINHO, Denise  and  JESUS, Monica Lima de. Perceptions of interdisciplinary bachelors entering the psychology major at UFBA. Est. Inter. Psicol. [online]. 2018, vol.9, n.1, pp. 86-107. ISSN 2236-6407.

We analyze perceptions constructed by undergraduate alumni of the Interdisciplinary Bachelor (BI) in Humanities during their transition to the Psychology major at UFBA, in regards to preparation and university entry as well as their experience as BI students. Taking the methodological model of Case Study, we interviewed entire class of 2012, formed by 13 individuals. The access to systematized psychological thinking before entering the psychology course was a positive experience. In addition, we noted that BI fulfills a socio-institutional function for professional choice consistent with the choice of a Psychology major. The Interdisciplinary Degree is described as a successful preparation for psychological theory. Despite the challenges brought on by the new curricular design, all subjects of the investigation reported a positive perception of interdisciplinary formation.
