Considerable International Interest for EMA-PS
Late applications for Joint European Master being accepted

EMA-PS is a European Union Socrates Curriculum Development programme set up to design a unique, highly innovative and dynamic European Master’s degree programme in the Science of Performative Creativity (MSPC). The programme brings together three European universities – Roma 'La Sapienza', Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznan (Poland) and the University of Malta, which is the coordinating university.

EMA-PS has not only caught the attention of world famous neuroscientist Giacomo Rizzolatti whose collaboration with Prof. John Schranz from the University of Malta opens to further developments in the research on performativity, it has also drawn considerable recognition internationally. This has led the Umberto Eco Institute for Higher Humanistic Studies at the University of Bologna to invite University of Malta neuroscientist Prof. Richard Muscat and Prof. John Schranz to open a three month series of seminars there, followed by the publication of a book about the series.   Moreover, the prestigious Japan Advanced Institute for Science and Technology is showing much interest and has invited Prof. Richard Muscat and Prof. John Schranz to Japan, over the coming weeks, in order to discuss avenues for collaboration between the respective lines of research of the two entities.

The two-year taught Master, which was launched in October 2007, brings together a number of disciplines bridging the arts and the sciences in order to conduct groundbreaking research into creativity and the brain. The programme focuses on Memory Systems, Learning Processes and Creativity, and considers the contexts in which human creativity is encouraged or inhibited.

The unique course will guide enterprising individuals to become instrumental in fostering Creativity and Innovation. Whatever one’s interest, Creativity spurs all human endeavour, be it in Culture, Economy, the Arts, Business, Education, Sport, Management, Life Sciences and beyond – and the Programme sets itself the task of enabling its students to become Strategists of Creativity and Innovation, whichever line of work they may take up in their future careers. The EMA-PS programme also aims to set itself up as a clearing house, generating bridges between the interests of its future graduates, those of the world of work, NGOs and research environments.  

Late applications for the course are currently being accepted until the 11th September.

A poolside gig to which all interested graduates are invited is being organised on the 19 August at the Lija University Residence at 2000hrs.  Apart from a welcome drink courtesy of Marsovin, live music by fusion violinist Simon Vella, followed by the acoustic-rock band Glass House, participants will receive information on the cutting edge nature of the programme and of the work-openings it will give them. They will also meet the programme directors, Prof. Richard Muscat, Pro-Rector in charge of Research and Innovation, and Prof. John Schranz, together with the Programme Administrator, Mr Victor Jacono, to discuss the programme in more depth on a one-to-one basis over a drink.

The EMA-PS network of universities will be awarding a joint Master's degree certificate to students who will graduate from the MSPC 2nd Cycle.
