The pursuit of postgraduate studies is very much like the explorer embarking on a voyage. Both are journeys requiring passion and perseverance, and both can lead to new discoveries with the potential to change your life and even change the world. The University of the West Indies is the leading educational research institution in the Caribbean. For more than 60 years the UWI has been home to scholars and researchers who have changed the way we in the Caribbean see ourselves, and have played a major role in the search for sustainable solutions for the problems facing small states in particular. Meanwhile, our taught programmes are among the most highly regarded by top local, regional and international businesses based in the Caribbean and give our graduates the edge in the workplace. That is why we continue to attract some of the best minds from across the globe to join us as faculty and as students. Here at the St. Augustine campus you will find exciting research possibilities in almost every major field – Engineering, Humanities, Education, Medicine, Science, Agriculture and the Social Sciences – both academic and applied. We have renewed our commitment to building our research capability on the campus with an increase in funding for postgraduate and staff research, by providing more postgraduate scholarships, by improving the procedures governing our postgraduate programmes, and by expanding the physical facilities available exclusively for post-graduate students. We have also invested significantly in the latest technology upgrades to make collaborative research easier – whether with colleagues based at another faculty, another UWI campus, or at another institution on the other side of the globe. We are very excited about the postgraduate opportunities provided on our campus and we look forward to sharing that excitement with you. Whether you enroll in one of our taught programmes, or pursue one of our full research degrees, there is always the opportunity to discover something new and to make your own mark on the world! Clement K. Sankat Pro Vice Chancellor & Principal

On behalf of the Faculty of Science & Agriculture (FSA), I thank the readers of this prospectus for considering the FSA as a potential institution at which they will pursue their postgraduate education. The Faculty was established in 1996 from the merger of the former Faculties of Agriculture and Natural Sciences and has a long tradition of higher degree education and research, which dates back to its forerunner, the former Imperial College of Tropical Agriculture. The Faculty offers single or multidisciplinary programmes of study in a wide range of disciplines. These programmes of study lead to a Master of Science (M.Sc.) degree, which is awarded on successful completion of a number of taught courses and a research project, or to a Master of Philosophy (M.Phil.) or a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) which are research degrees awarded for successful completion of a research thesis which makes an original contribution to the field of study. With the current rapid changes in information technology and globalisation of trade, there is now more than ever a need for individuals to equip themselves with the modern skills and qualifications, which enhance employment and career prospects, and for developing countries to have an appropriately trained work force. The six departments of the FSA are well equipped for carrying out basic and applied research and offer M.Sc. degrees in, Agricultural Economics, Computer Science, Crop Protection, Mathematics, Tropical Animal Science and Production, Tropical Commodity Utilisation, Statistics, as well as in Agricultural and Rural Development, which is delivered by distance teaching. In 2009, we will launch two new M.Sc. programmes in the Science and Management of Tropical Biodiversity, and Occupational and Environmental Safety and Health (OESH). The Faculty has been able to attract significant research funding from The University as well as from local, regional and international sources. This is a reflection of the quality and relevance of the research programmes being undertaken. The Faculty will be monitoring closely the progress of its research students who are expected to meet at scheduled intervals with their Supervisors and Advisory Committees. We also require graduate students to attend all seminars and to present Seminars on their own research at regular intervals. We encourage you to aim to have your findings published in refereed international journals. The Faculty provides many specialised laboratories in which students can pursue research under expert supervision. In addition to the above, our attractive campus and easily accessible working field station are located in a country which is ecologically diverse and which has not only a very rich culture, but also a very rich fauna and flora, so that although postgraduate study and the pursuit of excellence can be personally challenging, I am sure that your stay in Trinidad & Tobago will be a very rewarding one. We look forward to having you with us, and to the returning students – welcome back.

about the faculty

The FSA comprises six teaching and research departments which are organised in schools as follows:

The national herbarium of Trinidad & Tobago (nhTT):

DeParTmenTS

School of Agriculture Department of Agricultural Economics & Extension Department of Food Production

School of Sciences

Department of Chemistry Department of Life Sciences Department of Mathematics & Computer Sciences Department of Physics The Faculty also includes the following Teaching and/or Research Units:

The NHTT gained national status in 1972. It predates the UWI since it was established in 1887, and was transferred to the Imperial College of Tropical Agriculture, (currently the Faculty of Science and Agriculture) in 1947. The NHTT maintains the permanent museum collection of the flora of Trinidad & Tobago. It is a resource centre for botanical information, and provides facilities for local, regional and international researchers, as well as a plant identification service.

The Cocoa research unit (Cru):

The CRU is the custodian of the International Cocoa Genebank, Trinidad (a collection of some 2,300 accessions). The CRU is involved in a multi-disciplinary research programme, which includes collection and conservation of germplasm, morphological and molecular characterisation, germplasm enhancement, evaluation for resistance to major diseases and flavour assessment. In addition, the CRU plays a role in the improvement of cocoa by providing useful and diverse germplasm to cocoa producing countries. The Unit is involved in several international research projects, collaborates with other research institutions, and continues to attract local and external funding to support its research activities.

entry requirements

Candidates seeking entry to the Diploma, M.Sc., or M.Phil. programmes must satisfy the minimum entry requirements of the School for Graduate Studies & Research (Lower Second Class Honours for M.Sc.. and Upper Second Class Honours or equivalent for M.Phil). In exceptional cases, students may be admitted with a pass degree and/or considerable work experience in a related area. For direct entry into the Ph.D. programme, a student must satisfy minimum entry requirements of the School of Graduate Studies & Research AND have obtained a M.Phil. degree (or an equivalent qualification) in an appropriate field of study in science or agriculture from an approved tertiary level institution.
