As vantagens de um mestrado

Um programa de mestrado é uma oportunidade para avançar ainda mais no seus estudos. Muitas pessoas concluem um grau de ensino pós-secundário que corresponde a um nível de licenciatura. Após isto, muitos alunos entram no mercado de trabalho e começar a trabalhar na carreira relaconada com a área  da sua licenciatura. No entanto, há mais a aprender e é aí que o Mestrado entra em jogo. Ao tomar a decisão de se inscrever num programa de mestrado, o aluno deve considerar os seus objetivos gerais. Uma das principais vantagens de um mestrado é que o aluno é capaz de aprender a um nível superior e sobre temas mais específicas. Como resultado, o indivíduo é, então, capaz de se candidatar para cargos mais elevados, ganhar mais no seu emprego, ou até mesmo trabalhar em áreas mais avançadas. Muitas vezes, os empregadores incentivam os funcionários a trabalhar para obterem um mestrado, pois mostra que os/as alunos/alunas se empenham na sua àrea.

 

Qual a duração de um Programa de Mestrado?

Cada programa é ligeiramente diferente, em termos de duração. De um modo geral a maioria das pessoas pode concluir um programa de mestrado num período entre 18 a 24 meses. No entanto, muitos alunos assistem às aulas a tempo parcial, o que pode significar uma maior duração do programa, mas com menos aulas em cada semestre. Para algumas áreas, como cuidados de saúde avançados e direito, é comum estes programas de graduação terem uma duração até 36 meses a tempo inteiro.

Ao escolher uma universidade para fazer um mestrado, o currículo irá delinear as cadeiras específicas exigidas. É importante notar, porém, que a maioria dos programas permitem alguma personalização para garantir que o aluno é capaz de obter a educação que ele/ela necessitam para realmente obterem a formação desejada.

 

Tipos de programas de mestrado disponíveis

Os programas de mestrado variam de forma significativa, principalmente porque praticamente todos os cursos de licenciatura podem continuar com cadeiras adicionais até culminarem em graus de mestre. Isto inclui domínios, tais como:

  • Gestão Empresarial, incluindo especializações em finanças, recursos humanos e marketing
  • Engenharia e Tecnologia
  • Direito e regulamentos
  • Ciências Médicas e Biológicas
  • Ciências sociais
  • Artes e Humanidades

Muitas universidades oferecem mestrados que permitem ao aluno concentrar-se na área desejada de estudo. Se estiver à procura de um programa desse tipo e não o encontrar numa universidade, outra provavelmente irá oferecê-lo.

 

Custos

O custo de um programa de mestrado irão diferir significativamente entre escolas e regiões. As universidades tendem a cobrar mais por estes cursos avançados do que pelos cursos com currículo de licenciaturas. No entanto, isso é devido ao conhecimentos mais aprofundados, elevada tecnologia necessária e métodos pedagógicos mais avançados. Como resultado, os custos globais de um programa de mestrado podem ser muito acessíveis ou muito caros.

Os/As interessados/as em matricularem-se num mestrado irão querer certificar-se que têm todos os pré-requisitos necessários em primeiro lugar. Posto isto, é possível encontrar um programa concebido especificamente para a área de estudo que desejam explorar para avançar nas suas carreiras. Leia mais sobre programas de mestrado aqui.

LLM in International Law with International Relations

campus Bélgica Bruxelas
February 2015

The LLM in International Law with International Relations aims to provide a level of integration that will allow each discipline to be informed by the other. [+]

LLM in International Law with International Relations Traditionally international law and international relations have been taught as discrete subjects, in spite of their close relationship. The LLM in International Law with International Relations aims to provide a level of integration that will allow each discipline to be informed by the other. Such an interdisciplinary approach will be particularly appropriate to the needs of those involved with, or hoping to work for international non-government agencies, foreign affairs departments and international law firms. The course is particularly concerned with international humanitarian law. This programme enables students both to understand and evaluate public international law and its role and potential (and limitations) in international affairs, and it considers the theoretical bases of international law. The purpose of the programme is to provide an advanced training by way of coursework, in the general methods, scope, and theories of international law with an emphasis upon international humanitarian law and international relations. Consequently, students will be able either to develop their undergraduate specialisation or to receive a programme of training that will allow them to transfer their knowledge of other fields to that of international law, international relations and conflict analysis. Key facts Duration: Standard programme: One year full-time or two years part-time Extended programme: 18 months full-time or three years part-time Start: September or January. Aims The aims of the LLM in International Law with International Relations are to: Provide you with a postgraduate qualification of value if you intend to play a leading role in any field of public international law; to provide you with detailed knowledge and high level of understanding of a range of specialised subject areas; and to provide you with more broadly-based communication skills of general value in your search for postgraduate employment. Provide you with a sound knowledge and systematic understanding of the institutional structures, key legal principles and particular contexts of international law and international relations. Provide you with a degree of specialisation in areas of public international law of individual interest from amongst the range of options that are available and which require students to engage with academic work which is at the frontiers of scholarship. Encourage you to develop a critical awareness of the operation of public international law, particularly in contexts which are perceived to be controversial or in a state of evolution. Encourage the production of original and evaluative commentary that meets high standards of scholarship. Encourage you to develop critical, analytical and problems solving skills which can be applied to a wide range of legal and non-legal contexts. Develop the skills of academic legal research, particularly by the written presentation of arguments in a manner that meets relevant academic conventions. Assist those students who are minded to pursue academic research at a higher level in acquiring a sophisticated grounding in the essential techniques involved by following a specialised module in research methods. Structure The LLM in International Law with International Relations is offered in both the Standard (90 ECTS) and the Extended (120 ECTS) Programme format. The Extended Programme allows students to broaden their knowledge and experience within the programme by taking more options whilst at the same time affording them a greater opportunity for internships. Students can also benefit by taking parts of the programme in Canterbury as well as in Brussels. To be awarded a standard LLM in International Law with International Relations, students must take 6 taught modules, the methodology module 'Fundamentals, Dissertation and Research' and then submit a dissertation on a topic in International Law with International Relations. For the extended programme students must take an additional 3 taught modules. Modules The programme of study has four complementary components. The first provides an appreciation of public international law. One module in this component considers public international law generally, particularly concerning itself with the sources, methods and institutions of international law; the other module considers the practical significance of international law by considering its role and potential in a range of contemporary international problems. The second component focuses upon international humanitarian law. Here, the two relevant modules are one considering the international protection of human rights, and another concerned with in international criminal law. One of these may be substituted by International Economic Law. The third component consists of two modules drawn from other MA programmes at the School. These both contrast with, and are complementary to, the modules in international law. The final component is research and writing. Students take the methodology module which includes legal writing skills. This is in conjunction with the beginning of the writing of the required dissertation with some original research by each student. [-]

February 2015

At SMSAS you could be joining a vibrant research community of almost 100 postgraduate and postdoctoral researchers and academic staff. [+]

MSc, MPhil, PhD - Mathematics At SMSAS you could be joining a vibrant research community of almost 100 postgraduate and postdoctoral researchers and academic staff. You would have the opportunity to engage with a very wide range of research topics within a well-established system of support and training, with a high level of contact between staff and research students. A very active research seminar programme further enhances the Mathematics research experience. Course structure The research interests of the Mathematics Group cover a wide range of topics following our strategy of cohesion with diversity. The areas outlined provide focal points for these varied interests. Research areas Nonlinear Differential Equations The research on nonlinear differential equations primarily studies algorithms for their classification, normal forms, symmetry reductions and exact solutions. Boundary value problems are studied from an analytical viewpoint, using functional analysis and spectral theory to investigate properties of solutions. We also study applications of symmetry methods to numerical schemes, in particular the applications of moving frames. Painlevé Equations Current research on the Painlevé equations involves the structure of hierarchies of rational, algebraic and special function families of exact solutions, Bäcklund transformations and connection formulae using the isomonodromic deformation method. The group is also studying analogous results for the discrete Painlevé equations, which are nonlinear difference equations. Mathematical Biology Artificial immune systems use nonlinear interactions between cell populations in the immune system as the inspiration for new computer algorithms. We are using techniques of nonlinear dynamical systems to analyse the properties of these systems. Quantum Integrable Systems Current research on quantum integrable systems focuses on powerful exact analytical and numerical techniques, with applications in particle physics, quantum information theory and mathematical physics. Topological Solitons Topological solitons are stable, finite energy, particle-like solutions of nonlinear wave equations that arise due to the general topological properties of the nonlinear system concerned. Examples include monopoles, skyrmions and vortices. This research focuses on classical and quantum behaviour of solitons with applications in various areas of physics including particle, nuclear and condensed matter physics. The group employs a wide range of different techniques including numerical simulations, exact analytic solutions and geometrical methods. Algebra and Representation Theory A representation of a group is the concrete realisation of the group as a group of transformations. Representation theory played an important role in the proof of the classification of finite simple groups, one of the outstanding achievements of 20th-century algebra. Representations of both groups and algebras are important in diverse areas of mathematics, such as statistical mechanics, knot theory and combinatorics. Algebraic Topology In topology, geometry is studied with algebraic tools. An example of an algebraic object assigned to a geometric phenomenon is the winding number: this is an integer assigned to a map of the n-dimensional sphere to itself. The methods used in algebraic topology link in with homotopy theory, homological algebra and modern category theory. Invariant Theory Invariant theory has its roots in the classical constructive algebra of the 19th century and motivated the development of modern algebra by Hilbert, Noether, Weyl and others. There are natural applications and interactions with algebraic geometry, algebraic topology and representation theory. The starting point is an action of a group on a commutative ring, often a ring of polynomials on several variables. The ring of invariants, the subring of fixed points, is the primary object of study. We use computational methods to construct generators for the ring of invariants, and theoretical methods to understand the relationship between the structure of the ring of invariants and the underlying representation. Financial Mathematics Research includes work on financial risk management, asset pricing and optimal asset allocation, along with models to improve corporate financial management. Fees As a guide only, the 2014/15 annual tuition fees for this programme are: Mathematics - PhD at Canterbury: Full-time: £3996 UK/EU; £12450 Overseas Part-time: £1998 UK/EU; £6240 Overseas Mathematics - MPhil at Canterbury: Full-time: £3996 UK/EU; £12450 Overseas Part-time: £1998 UK/EU; £6240 Overseas Mathematics - MSc at Canterbury: Full-time: £3996 UK/EU; £12450 Overseas Part-time: £1998 UK/EU; £6240 Overseas Key facts Subject area: Mathematics Award: MSc, MPhil, PhD Course type: Research Location: Canterbury Mode of study: Full-time or part-time Attendance mode: Campus Duration: MSc one year full-time, two years part-time; MPhil two years full-time, three years part-time; PhD three to four years full-time, five to six years part-time Start: September [-]

. This new and currently relevant MA in Civil Society, NGO and Non-profit Studies is offered by the University of Kent's highly respected School of Social Policy, Sociology and Social Research; we are proud to have been ranked at 4th in the UK in the most recent RAE. As a recognised world, European and national leader in theoretical and applied social science with a strong liberal arts component, the School is uniquely well positioned to deliver this wide ranging and multi-faceted programme utilising contemporary research knowledge. The MA in Civil Society, NGO and Non-profit Studies is designed for well qualified, reflective, curious and profoundly motivated students who wish to gain knowledge of, and the ability to critically analyse, the role that civil society organisations do and should play in political, social and economic life. This new MA is exceptional in the field in terms of its breadth and depth. For example, most programmes in this area tend to focus largely on management and organisational issues and are associated with business studies style approaches. This MA, by contrast, is able to capitalise on the extraordinary range of multi-disciplinary expertise to be found at SSPSSR and the Faculty of Social Science, capitalising on cutting edge knowledge in policy studies, sociology and political analysis. Context for the new MA: The growth of international scholarship and policy interest in civil society The motivations for this area of study differ from place to place: in the UK, for example, emphasis is being placed on this sphere’s pivotal role as a anchor for the ‘Big Society’, and as a response to the limitations of the State; in many parts of East Central Europe, its capability to act as an alternative to market excesses which are given particular weight; while in the developing world it is often its role as an agent for democratisation that attracts most attention. But whatever the balance of reasons, it is agreed that we need to invest in the advancement of knowledge about this part of our social infrastructure. International research effort has accordingly proliferated in this area. Specialist international associations like ISTR, the International Society for Third Sector Research, have flourished over the past decade or more; nationally based groups, like VSSN in the UK and ARNOVA in the US have increasingly embraced the international and comparative dimension in their fora and events; and many disciplinary scholarly associations now include special interest groups focusing on core aspects of this sphere. Included here are nonprofit enterprise (economics and business studies), altruism, philanthropy and social movements (sociology), pro-social behaviours (social psychology), social capital and governance (political science), and long term trajectories of third sector-state interdependence (historical studies). The course is suitable for: - Internationally oriented students who have specialised or majored in undergraduate programmes in civil society, non-profit studies, policy studies or related areas, and wish to develop, deepen and broaden their existing knowledge - Practitioners working for or with civil society organisations, who have acquired experiential knowledge of aspects of this sphere, and who now wish to deepen their understanding more systematically by engaging with the latest frameworks and techniques for reflection and analysis - Employees from local, national and international public bodies and third sector representative and voice bodies, who need to develop insights on civil society as part of their efforts to frame, design, implement, analyse and critique civil society policies The course is flexibly organised, and may be undertaken on a full-time (one year) or part-time (two year) basis. The core, mandatory modules provide a uniquely insightful overview of the long term development of social science thinking about civil society; equip students with the ability to understand and put to work the most relevant approaches to the subject from across disciplines; and provide training in methodological matters. Students then choose from a range of options with strong relevance for civil society development, covering social movements; philanthropy and fundraising; international social policy analysis, and other bodies of knowledge within particular fields. Students obtain a Diploma on successfully completing these modules. However, many will seek to obtain the full MA by completing a closely supervised dissertation during the summer months which allows them to explore their particular area of interest in depth. [-]

MA/MSc in Environmental Anthropology

campus Reino Unido Estante de músicas
February 2015

Interdisciplinary study into how societies are influenced by the environment & how they manage natural resources and hazards. [+]

Interdisciplinary study into how societies are influenced by the environment & how they manage natural resources and hazards. The Masters programme in Environmental Anthropology aims to offer you the opportunity to acquire advanced knowledge of how different societies are influenced by the environment and manage natural resources and hazards, in relation to issues in human ecology, biodiversity management, sustainable development, environmental change and the practical applications of such knowledge. The aims include ensuring that as a graduate you will have a range of both practical and evaluative skills, and experience of conducting empirical or other applied research, to allow you to pursue work as a researcher or to inform whatever position you take up in the future. It is expected that such work might be undertaken in conjunction with a range of organisations including national or international environmental bodies, governmental departments, and non-governmental organisations. Our Anthropology research degree allows you to specialise in Environmental Anthropology. Doctoral degrees usually require three to four years of preparation, fieldwork and writing. Research students often forge independent linkages with overseas institutions, while many work with the numerous research fellows and staff in several research centres in the department, particularly the new Centre for Biocultural Diversity, and with our various partners, such as the Institute for Ecology in Bandung, Indonesia, the Centre for International Forestry Research in Indonesia, the Global Diversity Foundation. Course Structure The programme is taken over one year full-time, two years part-time. In each academic year there are three terms. Teaching for coursework takes place in the first and second terms. During the third term and the summer period students prepare their dissertation on a topic that reflects their own individual interests and experience. (Please note: All module offerings are subject to change and availability is not guaranteed) Features of the programme We follow an experiential and interactive learning method. We continue to experiment with ways of lecturing, running seminars and workshops, writing exams, designing assignments, supervising students, and evaluating essays and theses, to ensure that students learn by doing and so internalise substantive knowledge as well as the methods used by environmental anthropologists. A typical student will take assessed modules in Environmental Anthropology, Ethnobiological Knowledge Systems, Contemporary Ethnography, Social Anthropology and Research Methods. These modules involve a combination of lectures, seminar discussions and practical laboratories. Additionally students may opt to audit modules taught in DICE (the Durrell Institute of Conservation and Ecology) on conservation biology, nature and tourism and the international wildlife trade. There are also informal workshop series in Practical Methods in Conservation Social Science (jointly held with DICE), cultural domain analysis, research design, and computer applications. There are also field trips to various gardens, zoos and museums in the Kent area, such as the Powell-Cotton Museum, Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew, the Eden Project, the Brogdale National Fruit collection and the Aviary at Leeds Castle. Often taking time throughout the whole course to prepare for and carry out, the dissertation project is the culmination of the programme. Students often apply for funding from outside bodies and receive support from the department for overseas studies. They prepare proposals, practice methods, arrange for permits and letters of consent, and often take language classes to prepare for roughly 8 weeks of research between April and July 1st. They then write a 15,000 word dissertation that goes beyond a simple research report to argue a theoretical point and discuss research findings in much wider contexts. Increasingly, students are going on to publish edited versions of these projects, and are making substantive contributions to the research, development or conservation projects they work with. [-]
