This dual programme, in collaboration with James Madison University, starts in September and ends the following August. All coursework is undertaken in Malta between September 2016 to May 2017 and students work independently during the summer months to complete a capstone project. The degree is flexible, and enables each student to design a programme of studies that meets their long-term career goals. The curriculum provides a foundation for both natural resource conservation as well as sustainability management.
The educational benefits of the programne are not limited to the classroom. As a small Mediterranean island, Malta is a wonderful living laboratory for the study and practice of sustainability. A number of field experiences provide a hands-on feel for both sustainable technologies and resource conservation. The field experience includes site work at a nature park in Italy.
Expert faculty from both the University of Malta and JMU are involved in all teaching and instruction, providing participants with valuable international viewpoints. Intercultural awareness and deepened self-confidence grow from working with students and faculty from around the world.
Graduates will become well versed in the science of environmental sustainability and management and acquire an understanding of its practical applications. The programme is appropriate for both recent graduates and for those who are already working. It will allow you to experience sustainability challenges first-hand and significantly enhance your employment prospects.
