The University of Malta's Programme in the Liberal Arts and Sciences (PLAS) is an excellent opportunity for personal and professional development. Prospective students may apply for any and as many Units as they wish from the broad range of PLAS Units on offer. PLAS Units consist of weekly evening lectures between 6pm and 8pm, normally spread over 14 weeks.
22 Units will be offered in Semester 2 of 2019/20, commencing in February 2020 and running until June 2020. The subjects covered include film and film directing, mediation and diplomacy, consumer rights and protection, the Bible and archaeology, Shakespeare, il-Malti, music, sustainable development, splendour of the baroque, sexual and gender diversity, and others.
Two PLAS Tech Units are also being offered. The rationale of these Units is to respond to the need for ICT professionals to enrich their academic education with focused expertise on a selection of current and emerging software technologies and tools. In the next semester, Units on Software Test Automation and Continuous Integration, and Video Game Design and Development with Unity are being offered. PLAS Tech Units are included in the Get Qualified scheme.
Applications for PLAS Units are now being received through the website of the Centre for the Liberal Arts and Sciences (CLAS) www.um.edu.mt/clas. More information on individual Units and application fees can also be found on the website. The deadline for applying is 15 January 2020.
