I'm a student at the end of my Master science degree and I would like to go on with my studies having as a main topic Permaculture. I'd like to know if there are some Academic programs, in particular Doctorate ones, which make research in some subjects related directly or indirectly to Permaculture. I'm looking for a research program in different University but I didn't find it.
Is there anyone that can suggest me some Universities (contatcts, website etc.) working at Permaculture?
Here's a link to Gaia University's website. With them, people are able to earn up to a Master's in a permaculture-esque field. Getting a degree with them is of interest to me, too.
I have been talking a lot with admissions counselors and professors of the universities I have been accepted, in preparation to decide where I am going to and definitively choose my major, and I am learning a few interesting things:
-A person's degree's title/name matters to some extent, but the experiences you gain are much more important
-When someone searchs websites posting job offering, the listings typically ask for skills and experiences, and the degree required is actually quite flexible in the real world. (This was an eye-opener for me that degrees needed for jobs can be pretty flexible)
Congratulations on your MS, Davide! What is your major in?
The closest things I can think of are:
Urban and Community Forestry
Landscape Design and Planning
University of Missouri offers an online agroforestry master's degree. Not exactly what you asked about, but it's something I've thought about doing. They might have some PhD programs as well - I just haven't looked into that yet.

I would HIGHLY recommend Prescott College. Located in northern Arizona this school is top notch in environmental education including studies related to Permaculture. I did my undergrad there and LOVED it sooo much. They offer a PhD program that includes Sustainability Science and Regenerative Ecological Design, both right in line with Permaculture.
