Inter-institutional Programs

MINTER (Inter-institutional Master’s) and DINTER (Inter-institutional Doctorate) are postgraduate programs of an inter-institutional nature, aimed at training qualified human resources at the master’s and doctoral levels for socio-economic-cultural, scientific-technological and innovation development in the national and international context.


  • to enable the training, at the stricto sensu postgraduate level in the country, of professors from Higher Education Institutions;
  • to train masters and doctors of the permanent staff of professors from institutions far from the major centers of teaching and research, in order to reduce the asymmetries that exist today;
  • foster academic production and strengthen, in the institutions served, lines of research that respond to demands related to local and regional development.

Inter-institutional master’s (MINTER) or inter-institutional doctoral (DINTER) or professional master’s out-of-headquarters (MPFS) or professional doctoral-out-of-headquarters (DPFS) classes can only be proposed by programs with grade 4 or higher in the National Postgraduate System , to meet specific external institutional demands, public or private, of education or service, and with strong social insertion.
