The Doctoral program in Social Complexity Sciences seeks explicitly to attract students from different disciplines to form a team whose diversity enriches the collaborative work. We accept applicants who have at least an academic degree or equivalent from the Traditional Social Sciences as well as from the Natural and Exact Sciences.
The program encoorages the development of collaborative research projects in social complexity, where different disciplinary perspectives can converge. We seek for students of physics, mathematics, engineering, economics, sociology, psychology and political science.
A prerequisite of the program is to have received mathematical tools such as differential and integral calculus, linear algebra, probabilities and statistics. Therefore, with the aim of facilitating insertion in the program, promoting dialogue and collaboration among students of different undergraduate education, the program includes courses in Social Science leveling (oriented towards students coming from the Natural and Exact Sciences ) and Mathematics (oriented to students whose previous training does not incorporate quantitative training).
