The Brazilian Journalism graduation was created in 1947 when Casper Líbero Foundation has teamed up with the Philosophy Faculty of São Paulo's Catholic University and built the first Communication course in the country. Since then, the journalism curriculum has undergone several renovations, which influenced the profession in the country: five "Currículos mínimos" were created in 20 years, with the purpose of regulating journalism in the country, according to different interests. These Curriculum left marks in Journalism that we feel today, like the perception that Journalism is a Communication's "license", forcing students to be a versatile professionals. Moreover, Journalism has a serious teaching deficit, which separates theory from practice (functionalist perception). For the reasons above, experts in Communication, with the purpose of changing the negative influence of these "Currículos Mínimos", released a report in 2009, approved in 2013, with the Journalism's National Guidelines for the Journalism's graduation. The document intends to guide the discussion of the reformulation for the Journalism's curriculum in Brazil. Specifically, this paper seeks to contribute to the discussion of curriculum and national guidelines in the two main São Paulo's public universities: São Paulo State University - Universidade Estadual Paulista, UNESP - and University of São Paulo - Universidade de São Paulo, USP. In this regard, the paper's applicant makes a study of the guidelines contained in the previous and current curriculum proposals, dissects the Journalism's National Curriculum Guidelines, and offers help to speed up the discussion of the new Political Pedagogic Project for the journalism course.(AU)
