Program Description

Master of Environmental Management/ Master of Environmental Science Sustainable Land Use and Natural Resource Management (SLUSE-M) Programme by Coursework

The SLUSE-Malaysia (SLUSE-M) Programme is designed for working professionals and fresh graduates for the promotion of sustainable land use and natural resource management in Malaysia and other developing countries in this region. The programme is modelled on and implemented in parallel to a similar programme initiated by a Danish consortium of universities.

COLLABORATION FRAMEWORK

The SLUSE-Malaysia (SLUSE-M) programme was developed on a concept similar to that of the on-going SLUSE-Denmark (SLUSE-D) in which UNIMAS is a collaborator.

PROGRAMME SCHEDULE

Class activities and instructions such as lectures, presentations and discussions are conducted on weekends (Saturdays and Sundays). Classes are conducted during the weekends as we take into consideration the needs of students who are mostly professional working people.

PROGRAMME STRUCTURE

The SLUSE-M structure comprises three major components, namely: a) Joint SLUSE Module (15 credits) b) Joint Experiential Module (9 credits), and c) UNIMAS Core Modules (18 credits).

JOINT FIELD COURSE (JFC) AS AN INTERNATIONAL FIELD WORK PROGRAMME

The JFC is considered one of the highlights of the SLUSE programme where students are given the opportunity to apply their classroom interdisciplinary knowledge in research methodologies in the context of real-life problems/issues while allowing for intercultural exposure and academic discourse between international and Malaysian students.

WHO SHOULD APPLY?

The SLUSE-M Programme is designed for the following candidates: a) Graduates and professionals involved in resource and environmental management; b) Senior government personnel who are presently assigned tasks directly related to resource and environmental conservation with the desire to improve their skills and enhance their knowledge in resource and environmental management; and c) The general public with a relevant bachelor degree who wish to learn or update their knowledge in resource and environmental management.
