As a requirement, Doctorate students must perform an internship at an internationally well-known prestigious research center or university, under the supervision of a professor from such institution. The internship must be at least four months long, which may be divided into two inter-semester terms of two months each. The student must request authorization from the Graduate Studies Committee of the Department to conduct an internship longer than one semester. The moment at which the internship takes place depends on the aims of the same. There are, at least, three possible objectives: 1) To learn a particular method or technique mastered by the supervising professor and that is needed for the development of the dissertation. 2) To collect data that will be part of the dissertation. 3) To analyze, under the coaching of the supervising professor, the data previously collected from the dissertation.
