The University of Nicosia, based in Cyprus, introduced a master’s program to educate its students on the design and management of the metaverse. 

In a press release, the university described the program as the first Master of Science (MSc) in the metaverse, which equips the students with the knowledge and skills required for careers in metaverse design and management. The master’s program covers a number of fields related to metaverse development such as finance, social science, architecture, and policy.

The MSc in Metaverse will be divided into three semesters, which are scheduled to run throughout the year from September to October. It comprises two thematic areas; Metaverse Management and Metaverse Development.

The program’s courses will cover topics of NFTs, augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR), blockchain data skills, project management, and marketing. 

In this regard, Professor at the University of Nicosia and Executive Director of UNIC’s Institute for the Future Professor George Giaglis expressed his excitement about the introduction of the new master’s program, saying: “The metaverse represents the future of human interaction and offers tremendous potential across various sectors. Through this program, we aim to empower students with the knowledge and skills needed to thrive in this exciting new landscape.”  

The university pointed out that the enrolment for the September 2023 intake of the MSc in Metaverse program is now open and invited students are invited to register on the website in order to get more information about the program and the scholarship application process.

Earlier in November, the university’s Institute for the Future (IFF) collaborated with Binance Charity, the philanthropic arm of Binance to offer five full scholarships for students from Cyprus and Greece. Through these scholarships, the students will learn the world’s leading graduate program in the field to obtain a master of science degree in blockchain and Digital Currency from the university.
