Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria All work will be oriented to the realization of methodological exercises in the classroom context (40%). This practice continues, aims to enable students to perform, present and defend an individual research project, which will serve as thematic embryo of the future dissertation, and which should include the following items: framing and justification of the theme, research question, problematization , methodological design, index, schedule and list of bibliographic references according to Department norms (60%).

Given the eminently practical objectives of this course, there will be no final theoretical exam.
