A Recognition Ceremony was held on 14 May 2017, at the University of Malta Council Room, for students reading for the M.Sc. in Environmental Management and Sustainability; this is an International Collaborative Programme offered jointly by the University of Malta and James Madison University (Virginia, USA). The event celebrated the students’ successful completion of the taught component of this programme.

The group of EMS students with faculty members 

Three student representatives - Carley Rice, Ciara Middleton, and Trevor Wilson - shared personal insights regarding their experience on the programme. Prof. Louis F. Cassar, Director of the Institute of Earth Systems, also addressed the students. Students were then presented with their transcripts by Prof. Joseph Cacciottolo, Pro-Rector for Academic Affairs. Also present for the ceremony were various members of faculty who have lectured or supervised the students over the past academic year, members of the administrative staff, a representative of the US Embassy in Malta, and relatives and friends of the students. Mr Mario Cassar, who has been managing the administration of the International Collaborative Programmes for several years, served as Master of Ceremonies.

Students spent the following months working independently at a variety of sites in Malta and the United States to complete their research projects.

Enquiries regarding applications for this programme for academic year 2018/19 should be addressed to the course coordinator, Dr Elisabeth Conrad, as soon as possible.
