Abstract

LO BIANCO, Anna Carolina; ALMEIDA, Sebastião Sousa; KOLLER, Silvia Helena  and  PAIVA, Vera. Internationalization of graduate programs in Psychology: profile and qualification goals. Psicol. Reflex. Crit. [online]. 2010, vol.23, suppl.1, pp. 1-10. ISSN 0102-7972.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-79722010000400002.

Internationalization is examined as part of the efforts pursued by graduate courses in Brazil to enhance the possibilities of exchanges with courses abroad which may improve their qualification. Even encompassed by the indisputable phenomenon of globalization, a critical view must be kept over internationalization, especially on its consequences for institutional functioning. Data of 57 Psychology graduate programs regarding academic education and production are analyzed. Conclusions point to the accentuated valorization for publishing in international journals as far as evaluating agencies are concerned. On the other hand, aiming the internationalization, innumerable actions which are presented in a more diversified form in order to follow the sub-areas covered by Psychology in Brazil are observed.
