This doctoral program provides a double continuity: first, to the previously existing doctoral program, and secondly to the Official Master's Degree in Regional Development and Economic Integration, which provides the teaching period. It deals with a rigorous, transversal program with the participation of multiple areas of knowledge, seeking interdisciplinarity in the analysis rather than the excessive specialization that occurred in some of the doctoral courses of a more formalistic nature, scarcely intensive and with hardly any orientation to the research training.

The Program is characterized by the prioritization of very specific lines of research (demographic change, regional development and internalization, labor economics, agrarian policy and rural development, regional economic evaluation and planning, and information society and urban-regional development), areas in which the groups involved can offer the experience of high quality researchers at the national and international level, all this without prejudice to which, in justified cases, theses can be formulated in other lines of research within the field of applied economic analysis. .
