Program Proposal - Subjects

The Master's and Doctorate courses are structured around the two academic activities: Fundamentals (dealing with foundation knowledge), and Seminars on Variable Topics (covering the various research lines). These academic activities are electives, although the fundamentals are strongly recommended.

Most classes of the Program are face-to-face and taught in Portuguese. Although some subjects may be done online, it is not considered a distance-learning course. Some activities may be offered in other languages such as English, Spanish, German, or French, especially in the event of foreign visiting scholars. The subjects are divided into focus areas as follows:

Focus Area 1 - Theoretical and Descriptive Linguistics
Fundamentals of Theoretical and Descriptive Linguistics I: Phonology (course load of 60 hours)
Fundamentals of Theoretical and Descriptive Linguistics II: Syntax (course load of 60 hours)
