LORET DE MOLA LOPEZ, Enrique; PINO MARISTAN, Dania  y  NORDELO BORLADO, Josefa. Environmental education: epistemological premise for higher education. Rev Hum Med [online]. 2017, vol.17, n.3, pp.477-496. ISSN 1727-8120.

This article is aimed at systematizing a theoretical and methodological conception that forms the basis of environmental education in Cuban college degrees. Starting from the review of bibliographical sources and the observation of the educational process in three degrees, the referable theoretical framework is created. Among results, the place and role of environmental education in the integral professional training system is highlighted. Integrality, complexity, functionality and spatiality are characterized as features of environmental dimension, which give it a special connotation, as it is interpreted as a mediator between the functions of the constructed space and the way it is managed on the stage where the exchange of energy, matter and information flows are used in their interrelation with the social structure. The educational functions of environmental education are argued. They reveal characteristics which are inherent to any college degree and become apparent in a professional's behavior.

Palabras clave : professional training; environmental education; environmental dimension; educational functions of environmental education.
