Students reading for a B.Sc. (Hons) Earth Systems are uniquely furnished with a sound scientific grounding in various aspects of earth systems, together with an understanding of the social, economic, policy and legislative frameworks that are so crucial to environmental management and planning. Graduates are thus ideally placed to join professional ranks in addressing the management and planning of activities at the human-nature interface, and will bring skills to the job from both the natural and social sciences.

The Institute of Earth Systems held its first ever Earth Systems Graduate Launchpad at the Auditorium of the University’s Valletta campus on Friday 20 July 2015. This event, which will be held every two years, showcased research projects undertaken by Earth Systems students, and was attended by professionals, academics, and students.

Potential employers of Earth Systems graduates include government, private-sector industry and environmental appraisal consultancies, the University of Malta, and other educational institutions, as well as European and international governmental and non-governmental agencies such as the European Environment Agency, World Conservation Union (IUCN), Conservation International, the World Wildlife Fund, the World Bank, and various UN agencies including FAO, UNESCO, UNEP, UNDP and UNIDO.  

Graduates of this programme also have the option of pursuing full-time or part-time courses at Master level, either with the University of Malta or at universities abroad. Courses available locally include the University’s International Collaborative Programme (ICP) in Environmental Management and Sustainability. This is an accelerated 1-year dual M.Sc. programme offered jointly by James Madison University, USA and the University of Malta. Applications for the programme starting in 2016 are now closed, and the course will next be offered in September 2017.
