Students in the Natural Environment and Resources Management programme of study from University of Malta will learn to work towards finding solutions for societal problems related to natural resource exploitation and environmental change. The postgraduate programme consists of four components: core, methods, specialisation and a dissertation.
The coursework aims to provide the candidates with a) a comprehensive knowledge base reflecting current thinking in Earth Systems, b) a solid methodological foundation, and c) an opportunity for in-depth focus in a thematic area relevant to environment and resource management in which the candidate has specific interest. There may be opportunities to travel to other countries to conduct primary research.
During the application process, students will be asked to rank the thematic areas in the list of specializations offered. At the end of the first semester, students will be asked to formally submit a research proposal for consideration by the Board of Studies.
