If you think coastal and marine management is the field for you, consider courses in this field to focus your education. Graduates of these programs can go on to make a big difference for the largest environment in the world.

You might be wondering, what is a course in coastal and marine management and what makes it unique? Marine management is a specific aspect of marine biology that focuses on the aquatic environment and how to sustain one of our most sensitive and delicate resources. Aspects from sociology, ecology, economics and even business studies are usually included, as well as many types of science, including chemistry, geology and biology.

The biggest benefit for graduates of a coastal and marine management course is the knowledge that they can positively influence the future environment. The quality of life for countless animals, as well as humans, can be improved through your contributions.

Marine management is an advanced program that varies greatly in cost. This field affects the entire world, so it is possible to receive an excellent education no matter where you live, but location does play a big role in determining tuition. Online courses are also available for students with less time.

The careers that are possible with a degree in this area are mostly split into two categories: scientific and consultation. Scientific jobs are more applied and include research and implementation of new developments. Alternatively, it is possible to work as a consultant in the management and development of environment restoring techniques and resources. Both of these branches directly impact the oceans and make a difference in sustainability. You can also use your degree to work in aquariums or museums.

Coastal and marine management can be a very exciting and important field for the right person. If you are passionate about contributing, start by researching programs. Courses are offered across the globe, so you are sure to find one that’s the perfect fit. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

The course in Applied Methodology provides students with understanding, skills, and competence in research design, statistics, qualitative methodology, and research ethics. Topics in the quantitative section include logical components of research projects; sampling and sampling design; and interpretation of statistics in technical/scientific texts. Topics in the qualitative section include: designing a research project using qualitative methods; as well as qualitative data collection, processing, and interpretation. Special emphasis will be placed on mixing qualitative and quantitative methods, as well as writing technical texts for the students' own projects (thesis, proposals, manuscripts, etc.). The course also includes training on ethics in research, human subjects, and animal subjects ethics. -

The course in Marine Protected Area Management addresses the issues, challenges, and opportunities related to the management of coastal and marine resources through a focus on the design, implementation, and evaluation of marine protected areas. Worldwide, marine protected areas are being seen as both necessary and appropriate in addressing anthropogenic impacts resulting from human use and overuse, of the marine ecosystems, including commercial and recreational fishing, marine transportation, off-shore development related to oil and gas resources, mineral extraction, and renewable energy, land-based sources of pollution, and global climate change. Students will be given the opportunity to learn about how marine protected areas managers are confronting these challenges, and develop a practical understanding of the tools managers use, and acquire some understanding of what challenges have yet to be effectively met. -

In the course The Blue Economy and Coastal Communities, different approaches to achieve the sustainable use and conservation of ocean resources for improved wellbeing, social equity, and healthy aquatic ecosystems will be discussed. The course focuses on the blue economy paradigm, which connects environmental, social, and economic sustainability by promoting the improvement of human wellbeing and social equity. The Blue Economy has gained attention among government organizations, development agencies, politicians, academics, entrepreneurs, and businesses as being a new integrated approach to community and regional development. Different economic sectors that play an important role in coastal community development will be examined, such as aquaculture, marine biotechnology, energy, trade, tourism, construction, and marine services. This course shifts the attention from traditional economic analysis to alternative economic models and measures. -

The course explores the patterns and processes of marine ecosystems. The main emphasis of the course is on the population and community ecology of marine ecosystems, relating such ecological knowledge to the broader context of the environmental challenges faced by marine organisms and humans on a global scale. Lectures provide an in-depth understanding of concepts such as i) the diversity of life, distribution and dispersal, principles of population growth, species interactions, primary production, decomposition and nutrient cycling in marine ecosystems, trophic dynamics and food webs, biodiversity, ecosystem stability and function, as well as disturbance and succession of communities; ii) human-induced impacts on coastal and marine ecosystems, as well as an introduction to ecosystem conservation. Discussion sessions and writing assignments serve to deepen the understanding of selected theoretical and practical concepts, approaches or applications as well as to train students in reading and writing scientific papers. -

The course explores the complex interrelationships between coastal and marine natural resources and humans and communities. In recent years, there has been an increasing recognition that the marine environment cannot be managed effectively without the cooperation and participation of resource user groups and coastal stakeholders. Co-management and community-based management are two related, yet different approaches wherein cooperation and partnership are paramount and responsibility is shared, formally or informally, between state and user groups and/or communities of place and interest. The focus of this course will be to critically examine the extent to which co-management and other alternative community-based strategies provide a viable approach to marine management. Studies of such efforts from around the world, in different social and cultural contexts, will be critically examined to determine costs and benefits, the opportunities for and barriers to their implementation, and the conditions necessary for the development for sustainable, community-based coastal management systems. -

The course explores the concepts, principles, approaches, processes and issues related to integrated coastal and ocean management. This is achieved through a review of the development and history of Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICZM) within a global context. An overview of different management strategies, as well as the meaning of integration in the governing of natural resources, will be presented. Country case studies will be presented and examined. Successful and failed integrated coastal and ocean management techniques will also be discussed and analysed. -

The course focuses on oceanic and coastal environments, emphasising the relationship between physical processes and management strategies. The physical environment, i.e. waves, currents, sediment movement, beaches, erosion/deposition mechanisms, as well as potential consequences of sea-level rise and global warming, is integrated with anthropogenic dimensions, i.e. usage, coastal defence, pollution (e.g. persistent marine debris) and resource exploitation. The course also gives students an understanding of the consequences of human interactions with both marine and coastal environments as well as an introduction to quantitative techniques for data processing, measuring and data presentation in the field of coastal and marine management. -
