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.

Dr. Raveena 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.
