The first group in Malta has just graduated in Malta with a Bachelor of Honours in Politics and Governance from the University of Malta.
The B.A. (Hons.) in Politics and Governance aims to politically educate citizens for active engagement in Maltese public life. It focuses on under-represented occupational and social groups, emphasising public policy, management, and leadership.
The course covers diverse topics such as political behaviour, Maltese constitutional development, European policy-making, political leadership, foreign policy, and world politics. Students engage in original research, culminating in a dissertation that contributes to existing literature. The curriculum has evolved to integrate local and international perspectives, fostering a comprehensive understanding of political dynamics.
Among the graduates were Vice Mayor of Bormla Noyah Spiteri Hammett, who thanked her late mother following her achievement. Sergio Carbonaro, a familiar voice on local airwaves, too graduated in the course, writing ‘never say never to acquiring B.A Honours’ as he posed with his certificate and toga.
