The PhD can vary depending on the institution and country in which it is awarded. Most scholars pursue a PhD because of strong motivation to contribute to the academic community as well as true curiosity about their chosen field of study.
Ecology is an academic subject that covers topics such as animal ecology, conservation biology, and ecological theory. Individuals may be better prepared for a future career in ecology as they improve their foundational knowledge, as well as their field-specific skills, while studying in their academic program.

At present, there is a consensus that just having a comprehensive understanding of the planet’s natural system does not suffice. It is necessary to understand the complex interactions between the socio-economic system and the vital planetary systems which provide society with the ecosystem and natural services. The Social Ecology doctoral program contributes to the development of the environmental approaches characteristic in their interdisciplinary nature. The goal of the program is the advancement of knowledge, which should contribute to the creation of a theoretical base from within the strategy of making economic, social, and cultural development sustainable, especially from an environmental perspective....
We do research on evolutionary processes in relation to the genetic structure and selection and human issues related to environmental impacts.
Ph.D. in Ecology
The Ph.D. programme in Ecology at USN is focused on correlations between different environmental impacts. What does that mean?
Researching correlations between different environmental impacts mean that we look further into the relationship between aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems, both on individual species and ecosystem levels. We do research on evolutionary processes in relation to the genetic structure and selection and human issues related to environmental impacts.
Environmental research in general and especially national and international issues related to biodiversity and sustainable use of resources is facing increasing challenges. The need for this research is growing all over the world and environmental research has relevance for many other disciplines. The doctoral programme in ecology focuses on interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary cooperation to meet these challenges....

The post-graduate study subject "Physical Geography" links up with the magister study subject of the same name. In its specializations, the post-graduate study subject covers the whole spectrum of physical geography:
It develops individual basic scientific disciplines studying partial subsystems of the landscape sphere: Geomorphology and Palaeogeography of the Quaternary, Climatology, and Meteorology, Hydrology, Biogeography, Pedogeography, and Geoecology.
It is concerned with the synthesis of the geographical environment, ensured by complex physical geography. Besides the relations between natural components of the geographical environment, it also covers interactions of physical-geographical and social-economic spheres.

Ecology is dealing with interactions of groups of organisms related to their abiotic environment. The study is general, i. e. including all groups of taxonomic units. Projects with predominantly biotic interactions have priority over the study of abiotic environment: populations and community ecology, study of ecosystems.
Description of verification and evaluation criteria
The entrance exam is a one-round in the form of an interview. Based on a written request submitted electronically together with the application but no later than by 19 May 2019, the Dean may permit the entrance examination to take place via information and communication technology, but only for serious and documented reasons such as health or study abroad....
Our program aims to help students cultivate the knowledge and wisdom to respond to the contemporary ecological crisis from integral and transdisciplinary perspectives.
Ecology, Spirituality, and Religion PhD
The ecological challenges of the 21st century represent a crisis of values and consciousness. The pace of global change calls for an understanding of the process by which humanity came to this crossroads in planetary history. Graduate study in Ecology, Spirituality, and Religion allows students to cultivate the knowledge and wisdom to respond to the ecological crisis from integral and transdisciplinary perspectives.
Our program is centered in nurturing a community engaged in revitalizing the human relationship to the earth and exploring intersections of eco-spirituality, eco-justice, indigenous traditions, and eco-feminism. The world's religious and spiritual traditions offer deep insight into the human condition, along with profound teachings about how humans should relate to one another and to the environment. Students gain skills and insight to transform practices, worldviews, and consciousness in the service of a more just, sustainable, and flourishing planetary future. Core faculty are founders in the field of religion and ecology, shaping global dialogue linking spirituality and cosmology with ecology and sustainability....
