• Educational Model

    Student training is guided by the EARTH Educational Model, which is made up of five components:

    The Institutional Mission


    The Graduate Profile


    The Educational Principles


    The Teaching and Learning Process


    The Curricular Structure


    1. Institutional Mission

    In accordance with our mission, EARTH's most important task is to prepare young people capable of leading processes of positive changes in their communities, countries or regions to generate greater prosperity and equality among their inhabitants.

    2. Graduate Profile

    The EARTH graduate profile describes the knowledge, skills, abilities and attitudes that define the graduate's competencies, and is decisive in the direction of the teaching and learning process. These competencies are developed during your four years at the University and will continue to develop throughout your life.

    3. Educational Principles

    Our approach to students is based on two principles:

    Student-Centered Learning

    Individually or in groups, students explore everyday life challenges and turn them into real opportunities to generate knowledge.

    Experiential Learning

    Students learn through experiences designed to encourage and develop skills they can put into practice.

    4. Teaching and Learning Process

    At EARTH we establish that teaching and learning must occur in a dynamic and participatory way between the student and the facilitator. As a foundation for these processes, at EARTH we also establish that knowledge is constructed, therefore it is not a state but a process in continuous change that is not innate nor is it outside waiting to be transmitted by the faculty. We also recognize that, although social reality is presented to the student in all its richness and complexity, he can only construct it gradually and approximately by himself.

    Training Areas

    EARTH graduates develop the required skills in four training areas:

    Technical and scientific knowledge

    Development of socio-environmental awareness and commitment

    Personal development, attitudes and values

    Ethical entrepreneurship

    5. Curricular Structure

    The structure is made up of the curriculum and all activities, both formal and informal, associated with the student's training. EARTH's strength is having a flipped curriculum in which the student begins their studies with a systemic approach to agricultural production and natural resource management. As you progress, you focus on the details of production systems and how to manage natural resources.

    The study plan has different intentions for each of the years of the degree. These intentions associated with the competencies by year are described below:
