About

The B.A. and B.A. (Hons) in Communication Studies and International Relations are the  staple undergraduate degrees of the University of Malta. They differ from each other mainly in that the B.A. is spread equally over two areas of study, whereas the B.A.(Hons) focuses on a single area, with a secondary area as subsidiary.

Overview

All undergraduate students in the Communication Studies and International Relations  at the University of Malta  follow two areas of study during the first year, but those who wish and qualify to proceed to the honours track continue with one area of study, in addition to a limited number of credits in the subsidiary area to be taken during the second year. 

Undergraduates may choose a combination of any two areas of study, with some restriction imposed only by practical time-table requirements. 

The duration of the degree courses is three years. Honours students write research-based dissertations or long essays in the final stages of their studies. The weighting of the course components in establishing the final grade is biased in favour of the later parts of the course, on the principle that the fairest evaluation of a student is at the point of exit.

Mobility period

Students who wish to participate in an ERASMUS exchange are encouraged to do so preferably during the second year of the course.

Students are required to consult the respective department for further guidance vis-à-vis mobility period.
