Taught Masters Programmes (M.Sc.)

The Department offers taught masters programmes:

The M.Sc. in Occupational and Environmental Safety and Health (OESH)

Developed in 2005 with support from the Environmental Foundation of Jamaica (EFJ), UWI's Occupational and Environmental Safety and Health (OESH) programme is a collaborative effort between the Department of Chemistry, the Department of Community Health and Psychiatry and the Mona School of Business (MSB). It addresses the growing requirement for all employers, managers, supervisors, policy makers and public leaders for a functional awareness of the key issues related to environmental and occupational safety and health. It draws on the expertise from the labour movement, industry, governmental ministries of Labour and Health, the National Environment and Planning Agency (NEPA) and Jamaica Employer’s Federation (JEF).

The UWI Occupational and Environmental Safety and Health (OESH) programme offers professional development in the field of OESH through undergraduate, postgraduate and general interest courses.

The M.Sc. in Food and Agro-Processing Technology (FAPT).*

Introduced in 2012, the Master of Science in Food and Agro-Processing Technology (M.Sc. FAPT) is a professional programme designed to produce highly skilled technical graduates who are on the cutting edge of innovation in the food and agro-processing sectors. With the support of internationally recognized faculty, graduates will gain a competitive advantage for employment in both the private and public sectors, or they may be motivated by potential entrepreneurial pursuits.

Our Programme was Designed in Response to National Imperatives:                                                                                 The need to strengthen the technical capability and productivity of stakeholders in the food and agro-processing sectors have never been greater. Between the loss of preferential access to certain export markets – to the realisation that our food security is threatened by increasingly high levels of food imports, there is a national imperative to increase the production of local produce and to stimulate the flow of local value-added goods to market. By developing information systems that capture consumer preferences, we can take advantage of market opportunities through the application of appropriate technologies and through innovation.
