    • To create skills for insertion with autonomy in an appropriate environment to develop and improve the practical skills required to carry out a project of scientific and technical research in the field of Nutritional Sciences.
    • Contribute to the development of analytical and methodical criticism in the literature.
    • To provide the privileged opportunity to carry out active learning through the evaluation of articles published in scientific journals, using examples of research in nutrition, as well as examples of research that report their main practical consequences in this area of knowledge.
    • Enable students for creativity in formulating questions, objectivity in the exercise of systematic doubt and in research for the best evidence, critical evaluation with relative acceptance of lack of certainty in science and maturation of communication skills and dissemination of results of the technical-scientific research.
