The course is delivered by taught modules which explore the inter-relationships between human activities and the natural world, marine science, environmental management, planning practices and the international development of marine planning. The modules are followed by a supervised research project on a topic of choice, giving students the opportunity to develop an individual area of specialism, which may be geared towards future career interests.
The course aims to prepare future employees of organisations that will be closely involved in marine management and marine planning initiatives in the coming years. Potential employers include: national government departments and agencies with marine responsibilities; regional and local government coastal authorities; and marine NGOs, stakeholder groups and industrial interests concerned with maritime sectors such as energy, fisheries, nature conservation, ports and shipping, leisure and tourism and the coastal economy. Career opportunities are likely to arise in many geographical contexts around the world, including in less and more developed nations and emerging economies.
