Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria Classes must be attended and student participation based on the readings indicated for each week is counted through the weekly question and answer exercise. The evaluation method of this curricular unit presents a strong focus on the continued reading of the references indicated in the bibliography with the realization of a question and answer exercise based on the texts of the essential works. The assessment consists of two essays and a question and answer exercise distributed throughout the semester. The essays must be of free choice as long as the theme presents a direct relationship with the vast thematic scope of the UC. Normally, the student will be asked to choose an international regime. Since it is a second semester curricular unit, the assessment elements chosen reinforce communication skills - oral and written - preparing students for the next year of dissertation/internship/project.
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
