The Graduate Program in Education from the State University of Northern Paraná (PPEd/UENP) was granted authorization to start its Professional Master’s Degree in Basic Education from the Coordination for the Improvement of Higher Education in Brazil (CAPES) in November 2018.

Structured under one area of concentration– “Basic Education” – and two lines of research – “Basic Education: Management and Planning” and “Teaching Practices for Basic Education”, the program’s main concern is teacher-researcher education, based on an in-depth and critical understanding of school reality from the local reality in conjunction with the regional, national, and international ones. This will allow the program’s alumni to take transformative action in their work at different levels and modalities in Basic Education

The systematized thinking on Basic Education guides the Master’s Student work and interdisciplinary education, both by encompassing historical and philosophical aspects of education as well as educational practices and educational policies and management.
