The Coastal and Marine Management at the University Centre of the West Fjords introduces students to various methods for managing marine and coastal areas, based on economic, social, and environmental considerations.
The program consists of core courses and elective courses, plus the thesis. Core subjects are taught mainly at the beginning of the program, as they form the basis for subsequent teaching. The program focuses on management and courses promote an interdisciplinary approach.
The curriculum is structured so that the courses give students a holistic view of the subject, at the same time as remaining accessible to external students. Emphasis is placed on practical approaches and solutions to real-life problems, always based upon principles of sustainable development.
