International Doctoral Program on Education, Peace Culture, and Human Rights
The Universidad de El Salvador was El Salvador’s first university, founded in 1841. It is the Central American country’s only public university. With 12 faculties and roughly 58,000 students, it is also the largest.
Since 2021, the Faculty of Education has been participating in an international doctoral program on education, peace culture, and human rights. The program is taught at the Universidad de El Salvador but run by the University of Barcelona. Universities in Baja California, Bogotá, Magdalena, Santo Domingo, and Turin are also taking part.
The program currently has 22 doctoral researchers. They are writing their dissertations on human rights issues in the training and education of police, doctors, lawyers, and teachers; studying the situation in schools and universities; and doing research on the inclusion of people with disabilities, the educational situation in indigenous communities, and violence in different social groups.
The project team at the Faculty of Education is supervising several dissertations. As part of the program, Hamburg course instructors are also offering 3 in-person courses (2 weeks per course) at the Universidad de El Salvador.
