The Professional Post-Graduate Program in Music (PROMUS) intends to offer the master’s degree program in regular format with a minimum of 360 hours, according to CEPG-2009/2010 Resolution, and CAPES recommendation. Credit distribution will be as follows:
Subjects credits: 18
Thesis Credits: 2
Other credits (Professional internships): 4
The admission process for the course will be held annually, through a public call for projects, and the number of vacancies per selection will be defined, each year, by the Program’s Deliberative Committee, which will set the dates for the applications and evaluation of applications, committing to the offer of at least 10 vacancies per year. The admission process will consist of practical exam, preliminary project defense and foreign language exam.
Its structure is based on the principles of flexibility and guidance. It intends to foster and guarantee the sharing of the transmission of knowledge and experiences arising both from academic research practices as well as from innovation, applied research and experimentation and assessment practices resulting from continuous professional practices, thus absorbing and combining conditions for the shaping of outstanding and innovative professional profiles in the Area and Lines covered by the course. In this way, the coexistence of traditional academic production with the characteristic productions resulting from the various professional practices that should constitute a professional training path in music is made possible.
The title to be awarded, “Master in Music”, will be obtained after the completion of the Defense of Master Dissertation / Artistic or Pedagogical Production, which reflects the results of the experiences of the graduate students and must prove that the student has the qualification for advanced professional practice that transforms procedures and processes applied in the field of music. Thus, the format of the Master Dissertation / Artistic or Pedagogical Product requires the presentation of products generated in the course subjects, and therefore constitutes a Master Dissertation that synthesizes the experiences arising from the elaboration and construction of these products, and how they collaborate in the consolidation of student’s professional profile. This Master Dissertation is also complemented by the Artistic or Pedagogical Product, such as didactic materials, audiovisual and sound recordings or other media, of the artistic experiences developed.
