The Professional Master's Program in Portuguese Language and Literature teaching (PROFLETRAS), which is offered in a national network, is a stricto sensu postgraduate course that counts on the participation of several public higher education institutions. Its national coordinator is the Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte (UFRN).

The Program, through the education of teachers, aims to improve the training of primary school teachers in Portuguese language teaching and improve the quality of basic education.

PROFLETRAS was ranked by CAPES as a concept 4 program, due to the qualification of its faculty in the HEIs that integrate this Program into a national network. It is a semipresencial course with face-to-face classes, with simultaneous national offer, within the scope of the Open University of Brazil System, leading to the title of Master of Arts.
