O Curso de Geologia da UFRJ perante as Diretrizes Curriculares Nacionais: possíveis impactos no perfil do egresso

Amanda Goulart Rodrigues


The aim of this paper is to analyze the curriculum changes in the Geology undergraduate course of UFRJ against the National Curriculum Guidelines, to identify the possible impacts in the egress profile. A comparative and qualitative analysis of the curricula was done together with lecturers’ interviews. The curriculum changes consist in: (1) the reduction of courses’ theoretical-practical hours; (2) the inclusion of 420 hours of extension activities; (3) the inclusion of Supervised Internship and Healthy and Safe courses; and (4) the inclusion of theoretical hours in the Field Trip courses. Two impacts were identified: (1) better preparation to labor market, developing geologists more autonomous and attentive to social issues; and (2) detriment in basic conceptual training, making it difficult to solve complex geological problems. It is suggested the monitoring the implementation process semiannually, in order to assist in the detection of inconsistencies and in the planning of future revisions.
