Curricular structure

The curricular proposal was planned foreseeing an average time of 8 (eight) academic periods for its integration in the curricula of the Afternoon / Night shift and 12 (twelve) academic periods for the Degree in the Night shift.
The Bachelor's curriculum consists of compulsory subjects (2308h), mandatory choice (30h), optional (150h) and complementary activities (200h), totaling 2688h.
The degree curriculum consists of mandatory subjects (2730h), optional courses (180h), emphasis courses (90h) and complementary activities (200h), totaling 3200h.
The curricular proposal is periodically revised, based on the results of the evaluation processes and on the Sesu / MEC Curricular Guidelines.
In order to guarantee a solid training in specific contents, both for undergraduate and graduate students, a common core of mandatory subjects is foreseen in the curricular proposal. In the periodization of the curriculum, this trunk is developed in theoretical-experimental activities, which cover the contents of Classical and Modern Physics, Mathematics and Chemistry. Chemistry and Biology disciplines form the core of mandatory choice.
The curricular differentiation for the two degrees occurs by offering specific cores of mandatory subjects. The specifics of the Bacharelado are distributed in the last three years. In them, the student will have the opportunity to deepen his knowledge in contemporary Physics contents such as Quantum Mechanics and Statistical Physics.
The formation of the future teacher, due to its multidisciplinary character, requires knowledge that goes beyond Physics. Because of this, the Institute of Physics and the Faculty of Education assume co-responsibility for the development, throughout the course, of the pedagogical and integrating contents that will provide the teaching action.
The optional subjects aim to complement the training of students, familiarizing them with the lines of research of the IF-UFF, whether in relation to Physics itself or the teaching-learning issues of this Science.
Complementary activities record the student's involvement in relevant extracurricular activities inside or outside the institution, such as Scientific Initiation, Teaching or Extension, participation in events or seminars, professional courses, etc.
