Coastal and Marine Management: Theory and Tools

The course explores the concepts, principles, approaches, processes and issues related to integrated coastal and ocean management.

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.

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.
