This section presents a list of the permanent professors and collaborators of the PPGA, as well as the research projects that are being developed and the research groups of the program. All of the PPGA’s teachers have at least a doctoral degree in different areas of knowledge. In addition, many hold the title of Lecturer and/or are full professors at USP. In order for them to have the right to mentor stricto sensu graduate students, all of the mentors undergo a rigid accreditation process at the university.
