Master's Research Programs
CLIMATE CHANGE AND ENERGY
Dr. Sara Beth Keough, Professor of Geography at Saginaw Valley State University in Michigan, spent the 2016-2017 school year as a Fulbright Scholar in the country of Niger doing research and teaching in the West African Science Service Center for the Study of Climate Change and Energy at Niger’s national university, l’Université Abdou Moumouni, in the country’s capital of Niamey. Students in the Center’s graduate program observed many negative impacts of climate change in their respective countries. Dr. Keough recorded the reflections of five West African students in her course “Communicating Climate Change.” These stories help to expand the dialogue surrounding climate change to incorporate the experiences of some of the most vulnerable populations in some of the world’s poorest countries.

Upgrade from MRP to GRP in Climate Change and Energy
The WASCAL Master Research Program in Climate Change and Energy of Abdou Moumouni University (UAM) has upgraded his program to a Graduate Research Program (GRP).
The new GRP in Climate Change and Energy has to match the requirements of any doctorate Program of the University of Abdou Moumouni (UAM).
Therefore, Abdou Moumouni University group in Charge of Studying Higher education has proceeded early this 11th November, 2017 around 09:30pm in the meeting room of the MRP-CCE to the approbation of the new proposition of GRP-CCE program. This meeting served to harmonize the structure of WASCAL Graduate program. In the sideline of this meeting were:
Prof. Rabani ADAMOU, Vice-chancellor in charge of external relations of UAM-and Director of WASCAL MRP CCE Niamey;
Dr INOUSSA Maman Maârouhi, Coordinator of the WASCAL MRP CCE Niamey ;
Prof. DOUGAL Laouali, Director of the Doctoral School of Exact Science and Technology (EDSET-UMA);
Prof. Moussa Harouna, Director of the FAST-UMA Annals;
Dr Mounkaila Souley Moussa, FAST-UMA;
Dr Moukaila Mohamed de l’IRI-UAM;
Dr Ibrahim Boubacar , FAST-UMA;
Dr Yahaya Saley of CNES.
After this step, the GRP implementation process is completed. Doctoral students can automatically submit their application at the Doctoral School of Exact Science and Technology (EDSET-UMA) of Abdou Moumouni University for registration authorization. The EDSET Board will evaluate each candidate according to his application which may contain the following documents: student diploma, the transcript from the bachelor's to the master's degree, the official documents, the thesis proposal, the advisor's acceptance letter, the approval of the related laboratory and financial source statement.
