This PgDip/MSc programme provides advanced training across the range of subjects involved in contemporary coastal zone management and an understanding of relevant science and human activities that affect the coast as a basis for development of management approaches. It is aimed at physical sciences and life sciences graduates, and those who have demonstrable past or current coastal management responsibilities.
It draws upon the latest innovations and developments and, in particular, practical coastal zone management projects and research being undertaken by the Centre for Coastal and Marine Research of the School of Environmental Sciences.
The specific objectives of the course are to develop: an understanding of how coasts ‘work’; an appreciation of the role of humans in coastal systems; and a familiarity with past and current practice and ongoing developments.
It is accredited by the Institution of Environmental Sciences and CHES (The Committee of Heads for Environmental Sciences) – http://www.the.ies.org and http://www.ches.org.uk
