Prerequisites

Bibliography

Bibliografia específica será indicada pelo/a tutor/a de cada estudante, em função do tema da tese.

Each student’s tutor, according to the thesis topic, will recommend specific bibliography.

Teaching method

Tutorial supervision by each supervisor (in individual sessions or gathering students in small groups) is a characteristic resource in this curricular unit. In addition, it is assumed that the participation in scientific events related to the theses themes is a privileged learning opportunity.

Evaluation method

Evaluation includes an intermediate and formative step: a progress report presented by the student, one year before concluding the thesis, and two reports written by two researchers, making available suggestions and necessary improvements. A jury appointed by the Scientific Council of NOVA FCSH evaluates the Thesis within a public discussion, according to established academic practice.

Subject matter

Syllabus depends on the themes of on-going theses. Relevant topics will be identified in each academic year and they will be highlighted in different activities: tutorial sessions, individual or in small groups; activities promoted by the host Research Unit (reading groups, lectures, a. o.). When possible, student’s mobility will be supported, in order to enable their participation in international or national formative contexts (workshops, summer schools, graduate conferences, a. o.), thematically related to the topics of their theses.
