The year-long program runs from September to August and is divided into three semesters. It comprises two thematic areas: Metaverse Management and Metaverse Development. These areas are specifically tailored to deliver specialized courses that equip students with comprehensive knowledge of various aspects of metaverse technologies and their practical implementation.

“We are thrilled to introduce the world’s first MSc in Metaverse, showcasing our commitment to delivering forward-thinking education that addresses the demands of rapidly evolving industries. The metaverse represents the future of human interaction and offers tremendous potential across various sectors. Through this programme, we aim to empower students with the knowledge and skills needed to thrive in this exciting new landscape,”

Professor George Giaglis, Professor at the University of Nicosia, and Executive Director of UNIC’s Institute for the Future, said in a statement.

The UNIC’s flagship course, ‘NFTs and the Metaverse,’ will be part of the MSc in Metaverse program curriculum. Delivered on-chain and in the metaverse, this course is taught by UNIC faculty and NFT influencer & collector @punk6529.
