The PhD course in Geography (3rd cycle from Bologna) allows a scientific education and the obtention of a PhD degree in Human Geography and Physical Geography. The course is built so as to respond to the depth or reinforcement of knowledge complementarity, as well as to the acquisition of new competences, by holders of a Master’s degree or graduate degree in the several areas of Economic and Social Sciences or Earth Sciences. The academic part is made of seminars, field trips and scientific meetings. The non-academic part will include the elaboration of a dissertation as its main element. The student will have internal support, especially by the supervisor, and external, by invited experts, who will comment on the chosen theme and who may even join scientific research projects.
