Natural Sciences

A masters is the first level of graduate coursework and can be obtained after you receive a bachelor’s degree. Earning a masters usually requires two years of full-time study, which amounts to 36 to 54 semester credits.

 

In a natural sciences academic program, many branches of the field might be explored in depth with the goal of observing and learning about nature. Some of these branches may include astronomy, biology, physics, ecology and chemistry.

In Brazil, there are three types of degree: Bachelors - takes between four to six years to complete and students can work as teachers after finishing four years of research. Masters - takes one to two years to achieve; Doctoral/PhD - the highest degree you can study and takes three to four years to achieve. These three degrees loosely correspond to the three cycles of the Bologna Process - the European system of higher education. This means that if you have achieved an undergraduate degree at a European university, you should be qualified to achieve a Masters in Brazil.

Master In Mathematics Teaching Methodology

Grupo Tiradentes
Campus Full time 18  March 2018 Brazil Aracaju

The course provides a consistent methodological theoretical basis of the teaching of mathematics education in the current context enabling the formation of a reflective teacher and researcher. [+]

Best Masters in Natural Sciences in Brazil. Differentials Course The course provides a consistent methodological theoretical basis of the teaching of mathematics education in the current context enabling the formation of a reflective teacher and researcher. It also enables to acquire a good knowledge of the teaching-learning theories in order to adapt them to the mathematical content. Thus, teachers who teach in primary and secondary education can reflect on new teaching methodology proposed Mathematics, ensuring consistent practice with the latest research in the area. Finally, the course aims to train a teacher-researcher able to question the programs and existing teaching sequences. General objective Provide a consistent methodological theoretical basis of the teaching of mathematics education in the current context enabling the formation of a reflective teacher and researcher. Specific objectives • Acquire a good field of teaching and learning theories in order to adapt them to the mathematical content; • Enabling teachers who teach in primary and secondary reflections on new teaching methodology proposed Mathematics, ensuring consistent practice with the latest research in the area; • Form a teacher-researcher able to question the programs and teaching sequences TARGET AUDIENCE licensed professionals in Mathematics, Economics, Accounting and related area. METHODOLOGY The teaching methodology is at the discretion of each teacher, which may adopt different teaching strategies, defined in the respective educational programs (Education Plans), privileging case studies; games and simulations; conferences; lectures; seminars; directed studies; group work; practical classes in the laboratory; discussions and exchanges of experience and reading texts previously...

International Master in Advanced Clay Science (IMACS)

University of Poitiers
Campus Full time September 2017 Brazil Porto Alegre

IMACS is an integrated Master of Science designed by 4 institutions with a wide range of leadership in clay science. [+]

ENVIRONMENTS- ECONOMIC GEOLOGY-SOIL MANAGEMENT-GEOTECHNICAL ENGINEERING-GEOMATERIAL-NANOMATERIAL IMACS is an integrated Master of Science designed by 4 institutions with a wide range of leadership in clay science : the University of Poitiers (UP) in France (co-ordinator), the University of Aveiro (UA) in Portugal, the Technical University of Crete (TUC) (Chania) in Greece, the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS) (Porto Alegre) in Brazil. Why clay minerals ? Interest in clays results from their common availability, and their unique physical and chemical properties. No other minerals currently attract so great an interest. In addition to their conventional ancient use as bricks, tiles, ceramics and for paper coating and waste management more recently, clays have found many novel applications. Clay minerals have provided a boost in technology, because they are inexpensive nanomaterials, and as such, they have a huge potential for the synthesis of polymer nanocomposites with superior mechanical and thermal properties. The optimisation of adsorption, colloidal and rheological properties also opens prospects of using clay minerals for medical uses, pollution control, and environmental protection. Clay minerals play a role in economic geology (both as important mineral resource and in energy resource exploration) and soil management. Clays also have many negative effects in geotechnical engineering, manifested in the form of landslides, mudflows, and the deterioration of clay-based construction materials. Clay knowledge is extremely inter- and multidisciplinary as it includes geological, geotechnical, mineralogical, physico-chemical and bio-geochemical aspects. The IMACS is the first master course addressing analytical techniques and their recent developments, clay mineral... [-]
