Programa de Pós-Graduação em Biologia Animal (PPGBA)
About the Program
Our Graduate Programme in Animal Biology (PPGBA) started in 1994 with the creation of the MSc degree. In 2007, our PhD programme was approved by the the Brazilian Coordination for the Improvement of Higher Education Personnel (Capes). PPGBA scored Level 5 in the last Capes evaluation (scores go from 3 to 7). The Master’s course has a two-year duration, while the PhD can last four years. We currently count on 30 supervising professors, 4 admin staff, over 70 students and four main research areas: Animal Biology and Behaviour; Taxonomy; Ecology and Applied Zoology. We encourage interdisciplinary innovative research and international collaborations.
