Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria The classes are theoretical-practical. The theoretical part is evaluated in the three written tests, although there is also, in these tests, a practical component related to the required readings of literary works. However, the practical part has, as fundamental element of assessment, the written work that must be delivered. The participation of students is also valued, whether in the theoretical part or in the practical part of the collective sessions.
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
