VERHINE, Robert E.. Pós-graduação no Brasil e nos Estados Unidos: Uma análise comparativa. Educação. Porto Alegre [online]. 2008, vol.31, n.02, pp.166-172. ISSN 1981-2582.

This article compares graduate study in Brazil and the United States in order to demonstrate that master and doctoral programs in Brazil are not copies of those offered in the US, as is often posited. Rather, they result from a combination of American and French models, adjusted to Brazilian circumstances. The article describes the two models, reviews the history of graduate education in the US and Brazil and identifies and explains factors that differentiates graduate programs in the two countries. The author concludes by affirming that the “hybrid” model developed in Brazil successfully integrates the two traditional models in a complementary manner, producing valuable synergies.

Keywords : American Graduate Education; Brazilian Graduate Education; Comparative Education.
