Coastal and Marine Management

A bachelor’s degree is the first step to a career in the sciences. Students who earn a bachelor’s degree may work in their areas of interest or apply to graduate school to increase their earning potential and advancement opportunities in their chosen careers.

What is a BSc in Coastal and Marine Management? Coastal and marine management is a diverse field, and educational programs in this area reflect a range of interests. Shipping companies that use ports, engineers who augment coastlines, and environmental scientists who monitor the impacts of human development on waterways are only a few of the professionals whose work affects coastal and marine waters. Bachelor degree programs in coastal and marine management look at the interplay of the many uses and demands humans put on nearshore and offshore resources. Many programs focus on long-term sustainable use of coastal and marine environments.

Nearly half the world’s population lives near coastlines and depends upon the sea for a living. A degree in coastal and marine management teaches life skills such as looking critically at issues that arise from conflicting demands and finding strategies to reconcile differing calls for resource use. Additionally, those with a BSc degree generally have an easier time finding employment and earn more than those without a degree or with a lesser degree.

The cost of attending a coastal and marine management program varies widely between schools. When deciding on the value of a program, students should consider their specific goals against the opportunities each school offers to work in their particular areas of interest in coastal and marine management.

The diversity of stakeholders in the use of maritime resources makes a Bachelor in Coastal and Marine Management an excellent starting point for a number of careers. Government agencies, businesses and non-profit organizations all need people with an understanding of issues surrounding the shared use of marine and coastal waters.

As world population continues to grow and the demands on ocean resources increase, thoughtful management of coastal and marine resources will continue to play a crucial role for businesses, governments and private citizens.
