Courses Overview

According to the Art. 51 of the PPPGFSC Bylaws, the Master’s and Doctoral courses are categorized into the following types:

I – required courses: these are indispensable courses to the student. They can be more generalist or specific of a concentration area, and are defined by a normative resolution issued by the PPGFSC coordinator and approved by the Program’s Council and by the Graduate Studies Council;

II – electives: these are the courses covering more specific aspects related to the concentration areas of the Program, as well the courses that integrate knowledge from other areas;

III – teaching practicum: course regulated by a specific normative resolution issued by the PPGFSC coordinator and approved by the Program’s Council, in compliance with the relevant Graduate Studies Council resolution.

See below the list of courses with their respective descriptions:
