The ocean and coastal areas of the world are intimately connected to human systems. This course will explore the social and cultural dimensions of coastal and marine management through the lens of anthropology focusing on living and historical cultures. We will examine the relationships between humans and the marine environment historically and cross-culturally while attempting to understand not only how we manage, but the worldviews and cultural specifics that dictate why we manage marine systems in the way we do.
Prerequisites: Completed undergraduate studies, regardless of whether BA, BSc, BEd, or other equivalent study. It is important for applicants to have a good knowledge of English, as all teaching takes place in English.
