About this program

PhD in Natural Sciences (Environmental Science)

Environmental science is an interdisciplinary science, which is developed on the border where social and natural sciences and humanities meet. Environmental science uses the methodologies of social and natural sciences to study the interaction between humans and nature to ensure sustainable management of natural resources, protection of biodiversity, genetic diversity, the environment and society and to protect humans from the adverse effects of their own activities. In view of the rapid development of environmental science, research in this scientific discipline today make an integral part of the University.
