What will I learn?

This multidisciplinary programme is designed to equip graduates with the knowledge and skills required to take up the exciting job opportunities arising from the recent adoption of marine spatial planning and related developments in marine conservation and the maritime industries. Marine spatial planning is now developing as a key component of marine management. It aims to deliver a more organised sharing of sea space between demands as diverse as nature conservation, tourism, ports and shipping, renewable energy, fishing, aquaculture and mineral extraction. It seeks to integrate social, economic and environmental uses of the coast and sea.

Careers: 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.
