Agriculture – Florianópolis Campus

03/05/2016 16:31

The Bachelor’s in Agriculture is concerned with the preservation of the environment and the biological quality. Agriculturists work in the agricultural production and management processes, as well as in forest areas and animal husbandry. They can also provide advisory and consulting services, perform topographic services, certify products, and work with research and outreach in government agencies.

The program includes core courses, specific courses and rural administration courses. In the first three semesters, courses in Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and Biology are offered. Still in this period, more specific subjects are taught, such as Climatology and Introduction to Agriculture, which prepares the path for the professional part of the program that starts in the fourth semester. This part includes courses in Topography, Soil Science, Agricultural Mechanization, Entomology, Phytopathology, among others.

During the fourth and tenth semesters, students go on internships. In the fourth semester, the intern stays for a month in a small sized rural property so as to achieve a clear understanding of the profession. This practice is called “estágio de vivência” (experience internship). As it is situated in one of the few Brazilian states where family farms are predominant, the opportunity of learning about this type of farm structure is a characteristic of UFSC Agriculture Program. The tenth semester’s internship consists of an experience of the day-to-day practice of the profession and can be done in companies, government agencies or in any type of rural property.

In recent years, the profession has gained incentives due to the growth of agribusiness and of public programs aimed at family agriculture and the country’s rural development.

Accounting Science

03/05/2016 16:22

UFSC was the first university in the state of Santa Catarina to offer an undergraduate degree in Accounting Science. With a tradition of more than four decades, the program is ranked among the best in Brazil, according to the Guia do Estudante magazine.

UFSC accounting graduates are able to guide business strategies, conduct audits and investigations, advise, and control the cash flow of a company.

Since the early stages, the student deals with theoretical concepts in courses such as General Accounting, Tax Accounting, Management Accounting, Public Accounting, Business Games and Tax Law. Through the elective courses, students can opt for more specific topics such as Rural Accounting, Industrial Accounting and Social Security Accounting.

From the beginning, the program encourages the pursuit of continuous education through participation in outreach projects and student tutoring. Under faculty supervision, students advise government agencies, entities and private companies, and learn how to better manage them.

The accounting student has access to an Applied Computer Lab and a Practical Activities Lab, which simulate common situations encountered in the professional career. The program also offers an Accounting Information Management Laboratory (LabGCI) and several research centers, such as the Center for Brazilian Accounting Indicators (NICb) and the Center for Studies in Auditing (NEAUD), where the student can commence research and outreach activities. Students can also take part in the Junior Enterprise of the School of Socio-Economic Sciences, which offers advisory services to small and medium-sized enterprises.

Upon completion of the program, the graduated student must apply for the Sufficiency Exam of the Federal Council of Accounting for professional registration. Since its implementation in 2000, UFSC is the university with the larger number of students approved in the exam.

In 2004, the creation of a Master’s program in Accounting Science was approved and UFSC became the first public institution in southern Brazil to offer the degree.
