The Global Context

The course provides insight into the increasingly global nature of policy facing coastal communities. This involves an in depth analysis of the global forces and institutions shaping such realities and their impact at the local level.


Prerequisites:

Requirements for acceptance to courses are generally the same as for acceptance to the master’s program in whole, i.e. that applicants have completed undergraduate studies, regardless of whether BA, BSc, BEd, or other equivalent study. The master’s committee may decide to accept undergraduate students, who are a long way into their studies, to individual courses. All applications for entry to individual courses must be reviewed by the Master’s program committee and a decision can take up to two weeks. It is important for applicants to have a good knowledge of English, as all teaching takes place in English.
