Course summary

This degree provides excellent training to build a successful career in the field of marine environmental protection.

Course overview

Our ability to predict and understand the level and type of impacts that humans levy on the marine environment through activities associated with waste dumping, fisheries and aquaculture, oil and mineral extraction, tourism and recreation, and industrial and urban development underpins knowledge of how and why interactions of these often conflicting enterprises need to be managed and controlled. This course provides a wide range of unique and exciting theoretical and practical training opportunities for students aspiring to build successful careers in the marine environment sector.

Why study this course with us?

Marine and coastal resource management is a dynamic, exciting area, and knowledge in this field is integral to our understanding of the natural world and the need to protect it. We aim to provide you with advanced theoretical knowledge and practical skills in identifying, measuring and quantifying marine and coastal resources and the effects of anthropogenic impacts upon them. We will do this by engaging you in an interactive learning environment to explore our expertise in field and lab-based research on marine species, habitats, and processes in the UK, and further afield.

You will have the chance to acquire skills that will empower you to make decisions and develop policy on the management and protection of marine environments across the globe. You will apply these skills to a range of real-life scenarios, including wildlife management and conservation, environmental impact assessment, ecosystem services, and sustainable marine resource exploitation. You will be trained in marine field research techniques, have the opportunity to become certified as a GUE scientific diver, learn advanced analytical methods, and develop your science communication skills. You will become equipped with competency in the application of marine and coastal sciences to practical management settings, providing access to a wide range of employment opportunities.
