Master in Animal Production – Curricular structure

Curricular structure

The subjects will be taught primarily at the Montes Claros Campus. In order to make the academic activities of professors at the Veterinary School of UFMG available in the ICA-UFMG, the methodology will employ video-conferencing and / or the offer of condensed subjects.

The graduate student in animal production at UFMG must attend 18 credits: 4 (four) compulsory and 14 (fourteen) optional.

The compulsory subjects will comprise: Seminars I and II, both with two credits and workload of 30 hours each. Academic production and dissertation defense are also considered mandatory activities, however, these activities do not generate credits. The student must be enrolled in these activities to proceed with the dissertation defense. Whit respect to optional subjects, the student together with his guidance committee must organize the master’s study plan within the chosen line of research.
