Description


The Ph.D. in Geography has two different paths. The first one refers to a tutorial programme specifically dedicated to the development of the thesis. Three full academic years will be dedicated to the preparation and writing of the project under the supervision of a lecturer from the Geography Department of the University of Minho, or of a Portuguese or foreign lecturer of recognised value. This model allows for three specialisations: Physical Geography and Environmental Studies, Humana Geography and Geography and Regional Planning.
