The Doctorate in Environmental and Rural Studies has focused the course of the Faculty in Environmental and Rural Studies in the training of high level researchers who stand out for their human, academic and professional qualities. The program has been in existence for more than 10 years, forming doctors capable of proposing and developing ecological, environmental and rural studies, with a holistic and interdisciplinary vision, incorporating the most recent academic knowledge with the aim of impacting the society-nature relationship. Our graduates have been prepared to generate new theories, research groups and innovative studies in their field of knowledge. The joint work of the departments of Ecology and Territory and Rural Development has strengthened three research groups accredited by Colciencias as category A groups, to which the students are linked.
