This degree, in turn, may be awarded for Bachelor’s, Licentiate, or Technological programs. In Brazil, unlike the United States, fields of study such as law, dentistry, and medicine are taught as undergraduate programs.
These degrees represent a generalist, scientific, and humanistic education, which gives the undergraduate competences in a specific field of knowledge. At Tiradentes University, the majority of undergraduate programs award Bachelor’s degrees at their completion.
Licentiate programs are for students whose goal is to be teachers in primary education.
Technological programs are for undergraduates and, under Brazilian legislation, encourage the development of entrepreneurial capacity and the comprehension of technological processes, as well as production and scientific innovation, with their respective applications in the job market.
COMPARISON WITH OTHER EDUCATIONAL SYSTEMS
Compared to the U.S. system, Bachelor’s degree, Licentiate, and Technological Programs correspond to the Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) or Bachelor of Science (B.S.), although certain graduate professional programs in the U.S. (law, dentistry, and medicine) are initiated at the undergraduate level in Brazil. In accordance with the Bologna Declaration, which aims to unify the standards of academic training in European countries, the Brazilian degrees correspond to the sum of the “Bachelor” and “Masters” degrees in that continent.
