Are invited experts in the various fields of the topics treated, mostly international, allowing a comprehensive reflection on the issues and subjects taught. Every year is made a study visit allowing contact with international realities and forms of action distinct, enabling new perspective and knowledge sharing with different realities. The evaluation is performed through a work cuts across all units, which relate to the matters discussed. Also included the evaluation work, the research project to develop with annotated bibliography and 5 TDS reading.
