The Doctoral Program in Biology and Environment, whose development and organization are overseen by the School of Sciences, is framed within the University of Navarra Doctoral School, established under the provisions set out by RD 99/2011, which provides planning, coordination and monitoring of doctoral programs.
This program is adapted to the European Higher Education Area and meets the requirements indicated in Royal Decree 1393, dated October 29, 2007, which regulates official university education. It was evaluated by the National Agency for Quality Assessment and Accreditation (ANECA) and approved by the Council of Universities on November 15, 2012. This official degree program is registered in the Registry of Universities, Centers and Qualifications (Official State Bulletin, April 22, 2013).
The program has been adapted to the verification procedures stipulated in RD 99, dated January 28, 2011, which regulates official doctoral education (BOE, Official State Bulletin, February 10, 2011); it has received a favorable report from ANECA and a positive assessment from the Council of Universities.
The history of this doctoral program begins with the prior doctoral program entitled "Biology and Environment," adapted to the European Higher Education Area, which met the requirements of RD 1393/2007, which regulates official university education. That program received a positive review from the Council of Universities. It was an official degree program registered in the Registry of Universities, Centers and Qualifications (Official State Bulletin, Wednesday, February 10, 2010). Subsequently, the Doctoral Program in Biology and Environment was evaluated by ANECA (National Agency for Quality Assessment and Accreditation) within the framework of the Citation of Excellence program; in this assessment it earned a favorable report and a score of 81 points.
The following University of Navarra departments and centers participate in the development of the program:
Department of Environmental Biology
Department of Chemistry and Soil Science
Department of History, Art History and Geography
Department of Environmental Engineering, CEIT (San Sebastián Campus)
The teaching and research activities of the Doctoral Program in Biology and Environment benefit from the collaboration of foreign universities and research centers. These activities enable participating departments to improve their teaching and research activities and to expand their partnerships with other research and teaching groups; it also allows participating doctoral candidates to pursue European doctoral degrees and doctoral dissertations under the joint advisor system, as well as to add other academic accomplishments (teaching and/or research) to their curriculum vitae.
All the departments involved in the proposed program work on international projects or are in contact with other highly regarded researchers and institutions. Partnership agreements and relationships with other universities and research centers (both Spanish and foreign) encourage student mobility and internationalization, thus ensuring that graduates gain an understanding of the international research and educational context.
