  • Background

    This doctoral program has its roots in a generic communication program that has been adapted to different legislations.

    The Doctoral Degree in Communication has been taught at the University of Navarra since the 1986-1987 academic year, when it was designed as a single interdepartmental program. At that time it was coordinated by the Department of Public Communication.  The program was created as a response to Royal Decree 185, dated January 23, 1985 (BOE, Official State Bulletin, February 16, 1985), which regulated third-cycle university studies.

    The Doctoral Degree in Communication was later regulated by RD 778/1998, and was approved as an official graduate program by the Ministry of Education and Science pursuant to Royal Decree 56/2005. In 2005, the program was awarded the Citation of Quality by the Ministry of Education and Science. This was renewed in 2007 (award reference: BOE No. 167, July 14, 2005; renewal reference: BOE No. 245, October 12, 2007).

    In 2009, in accordance with RD 1393, dated October 29, 2007, and the Resolution of December 29, 2008 from the General Directorate of Universities, a new Doctoral Degree in Communication, based on the previous degree and with a training period consisting of 60 credits, was submitted for verification and favorably approved.

    The Doctoral Degree in Communication at the University of Navarra currently in force in accordance with Royal Decree 99, dated January 28, 2011, which regulates official doctoral education, received a positive verification from ANECA on July 30, 2012.

    The School of Communication also offers a master's degree that is linked to this doctoral program, the Master's Degree in Communication Research, which was approved on July 19, 2012 (BOE, Official State Bulletin, April 23, 2013).
