Welcome to the Department of Environmental Science

The Department of Environmental Science (DoES) was established with the inception of the Junior College of the University of Malta in October 1995. It initially formed a semi-independent part of the Department of Biology but became fully independent by October 1996. The DoES presently comprises four full-time lecturers, all of whom possess high level qualifications (i.e. postgraduate degrees or diplomas) in this field. Just as importantly, all four are qualified teachers and also hold additional degrees or certificates in education. The principal course offered by DoES leads students to the Intermediate Level examination in Environmental Science offered by the University of Malta.

The course is open to students who don’t have any scientific knowledge, albeit students who have studied science are also accepted. The course starts with the basics of science in order to give a good grounding to all students in the basic sciences. These are used as tools to understand and interpret the dynamics of the environment and the role played by man and other organisms found around us.

The course is only offered at an Intermediate Level but opens various opportunities for students to better understand issues concerning the natural environment both locally and also internationally thus giving them the cutting edge over others who might not be academically well equipped in order to tackle such issues.
