The Interdisciplinary Doctoral Study Programme in Environmental Protection lasts for three years, covers 180 credits and is a third-level programme under the Bologna scheme. The programme is evaluated according to the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS), which enables the inclusion of parts of the programme in international exchanges with universities from countries that use the ECTS system.
Global development around the world is increasing the pressure on the environment and changing societal values and behaviour, thus promoting research into environmental threats and developing new technologies. Slovenians should not be left behind in protecting the environment. Environmental protection issues are comprehensive, interdisciplinary and combine natural, social, technical, medical-hygienic and other topics. Environmental problems, which are often caused by poorly considered economic measures, are identified by natural science and addressed by technical measures that are conditioned by economic and legal frameworks and burdened with social consequences. That is why the prospect for successful regulation of environmental problems is seen in the integration of different approaches and knowledge. As a rule, new knowledge, insights and technical solutions are generated in the border areas between different sciences.
The field of environmental protection combines knowledge of all fields of science from humanities, technology, medicine and science to biotechnology. The need for a quality and up-to-date doctoral study programme to acquire relevant interdisciplinary knowledge in the various fields of scientific sciences that are being developed at the University of Ljubljana is dictated by the growing and urgent problems of environmental protection and their impact on the quality of life. Due to the good experience so far in the development of an interdisciplinary approach, the Interdisciplinary Doctoral Study Programme in Environmental Protection is organised at university level. This also enables the connection of teachers and researchers of individual sciences from different members of the University of Ljubljana in this doctoral programme.
The main focus of the doctoral study programme is on interdisciplinary research work and the cooperation of internationally renowned domestic and foreign experts.
The Interdisciplinary Doctoral Study Programme in Environmental Protection at the University of Ljubljana connects experts from different faculties and departments, and numerous elective courses offer students a wide range of knowledge about environmental protection. PhD students will deepen their specialised knowledge, while also being trained in teamwork/interdisciplinary work in managing the most demanding environmental problems.
The programme is interdisciplinary and combines the scientific fields of thirteen faculties of the University of Ljubljana. It is envisaged as an interdisciplinary study programme for PhD students in natural sciences, engineering, biotechnology, social sciences, humanities and medical sciences who will need knowledge in several fields in preparing their doctoral dissertation. The programme is comparable to related programmes at foreign universities.
