Nassau, Bahamas - The admissions department of The Bahamas Agriculture and Marine
Science Institute (BAMSI) recently held an informational symposium for senior school
guidance counselors, community leaders and civic groups. The symposium was designed to familiarize
attendees with the various arms of BAMSI and to give them a working session on
the application and admissions process to the BAMSI College.
Roberts-Hanna, executive director of the College, informed participants of the
multiple degree and certificate offerings at the Institute, as well as the
opportunity for successful applicants to obtain a full tuition scholarship. “BAMSI is the only institution - at the
tertiary level - offering teaching and training to provide the professional and
technical qualifications necessary for the various branches of agriculture and
marine resources,” Dr. Roberts-Hanna said.
She added that BAMSI offers associate degree and certificate programs in
aquaculture, marine science and agriculture and that registration for the fall
2017 semester is currently open.
Also on hand was President
of BAMSI Godfrey Eneas, who also serves as the Bahamas ambassador to the UN’s
Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). He provided an historical perspective
of the nation’s agriculture industry and identified the role BAMSI is playing
in moving the sector forward.
