The University of New Orleans has signed a memorandum of understanding with the University of Malta to establish a dual degree program in counseling.

UNO President Peter J. Fos and University of Malta Rector Juanito Camilleri participated in a signing ceremony on Sept. 26 on the campus of the University of Malta.

The agreement states that the two institutions will work collaboratively on creating a dual graduate degree. Students who complete the course of study will receive two degrees: a master of education in counseling from UNO and a master of arts in transcultural counseling from the University of Malta.

"We are proud to partner with our colleagues at the University of Malta," Fos said. "This program will attract students from across the world and will establish UNO as a global leader in the counseling profession, helping to bring counseling services to developing countries as well as industrialized nations worldwide."

The program will be housed at the University of Malta. Select UNO faculty members will travel to Malta to teach courses and students will receive credit from both institutions for each course.

The University of Malta is the preeminent teaching institution in Malta. It has an enrollment of approximately 11,000 students including more than 600 international students from 80 different countries. The university is geared towards the infrastructural and industrial needs of the country so as to provide expertise in crucial fields. More than 3,000 students graduate in various disciplines annually. The degree courses at the university are designed to produce highly qualified professionals, with experience of research, who will play key roles in industry, commerce and public affairs in general.
