The primary theme of the Malta field course is A Mediterranean island in the Anthropocene - experiencing and representing the environment, climate change, and Maltese traditions in the face of a climate crisis. 

Secondary themes are History and heritage – island life from the Pleistocene to the Anthropocene, Science and religion – representing the (pre)human story and coming catastrophe in a Catholic nation and Agriculture and sustainability – organic agriculture, “slow food,” and heritage protection.
