Nature Conservation’s Master’s programme article does wonders on Facebook

Impressive! Prof Small, closer to camera, and Prof Coopoosamy, checking the performance of the article on Facebook

While everyone went away for the 2015 Festive Season break, Prof Peter Small, Head of  Nature Conservation department, remained a constant sight in his office, crafting a Master’s degree programme. This resulted in the department welcoming the first group of students in 2017, who produced a completed proposal as a prerequisite for the programme. Last week MarComms ran a GnF story about their first Master’s dissertation that was submitted by a student, Sipho Goge. The story was also posted on the MUT Facebook page. It has reached 10 057 people, who Liked, Reacted, Shared, and Commented on the post.  The department has been fielding calls from people from other universities who showed keen interest in the programme. Prof Small highlighted the role played by Prof Roger Coopoosamy who also coordinates the postgraduate programme in the Department. “Prof Coopoosamy supervised most of the six students that are going to graduate in April,” said Prof Small.  The department is known for its ‘firsts’. Among these are B-Tech, Post-Grad Diploma, Master’s and Post-Doctorate in Nature Conservation. The Facebook post can be accessed through the link: https://www.facebook.com/MUTUmlazi/
