What will I learn?

The Master of Maritime Policy is designed to meet the early or mid-career education requirements of maritime professionals working in a policy or operational context, or those who intend to pursue a career in a maritime or related field.

Maritime Policy deals with policy, law and security issues related to the world’s oceans. It addresses these issues in the contexts of the importance of the sea for trade, as a source of both living and non-living marine resources, as an important natural environment, and as both a source of international political tensions and cooperation.

This degree provides a broad understanding of the law of the sea, ocean governance and maritime security. You will gain knowledge of areas such as maritime enforcement, maritime security threats and solutions, marine environmental law, regulation of shipping and marine resources management.

You will learn to analyse the legal, political and operational factors that contribute to the development of the law of the sea and maritime policy, and devise solutions to gaps in legal and policy frameworks.
