MASTERS IN HUMAN ECOLOGY
Human ecology is the study of the temporal and spatial relationships between the human species ( Homo sapiens ) and the components and processes of the ecosystems of which it forms a part. Its objective is to understand how human societies conceive of, use and affect the environment, including biological, social, and cultural changes within it.
Human ecology research is fundamental to society because it leads to:
- Understanding of the history and current condition of the society-environment relationship and of human populations.
- Identification, design and testing of alternatives for improving living conditions in human populations.
The objective of the Human Ecology Masters program is to form qualified human ecology professionals who, with a critical and sensitive spirit, are able to confront and contribute to solving problems in the society/environment relationship.
Each graduate from this program will be able to identify and resolve human ecology problems as part of official organizations, non-governmental organizations, companies or communities or carry out research in human ecology and related areas.
Values and Attitudes
Graduates will develop values and attitudes such as:
Perception of the problems within the society-nature relationship.
A critical spirit for confronting human ecology problems.
Respect for biological and cultural diversity.
Consciousness of diversified and long-term natural resources use and the importance of promoting it.
The sensitivity and ability to identify, design and test actions aimed at improving living conditions in human populations.
