Characteristics of the final work
The work will have an extension between 5 and 7 pages in which the state of the matter is synthesized on the chosen theme.
First sheet: Name, title and area of knowledge to which the proposal is associated
Between 1 and 2 pages of the mental map of the trends seen in the matter.
Between 3 and 5 pages: state of the question (written type scientific article), so that a review and synthesis of existing research in the chosen research trend is carried out. It is recommended to choose that trend that is related to the theme of the Work End of Master to serve as support in the preparation of the same.

GLOBAL EXAM AND SECOND CALL
The above mentioned evaluation systems, final work or exam, will be applied in all the calls and will be any of them considered global evaluation test.
Each student will elaborate a monographic work referring to a mental map of the research trends and a specific work linked to a specific area of knowledge. Work can be the state of the issue of TFM. It is also possible to choose, instead of the work, a final exam in which the explanation of one of the research trends addressed in the subject will be developed as an extended topic. Both evaluation systems will be applied in all the calls and will be any of them considered global evaluation test.
