Doctoral Degree in Human Sexuality

Resulting from the collaboration between three faculties of the U.Porto (FPCEUP, FMUP and ICBAS), the Doctoral Programme in Human Sexuality (PDSH) is a pioneer course in Europe, which offers advanced knowledge and promotes the development of research in a field that is crucial in terms of human well-being and biopsychosocial health.

The PDSH gathers researchers and teachers specialized in the area of sexuality from various research centres at U.Porto (CPUP, CIIE, EPIUnit, UMIB). It promotes high quality advanced training with the establishment of strategic international partnerships, and with the ultimate goal of establishing an international centre of excellence in the area of sexuality at the University of Porto and in Portugal.
