Coastal planning – MI to launch marine spatial planning master’s program for fall 2016

Trying to decide if I want to go that next step and get my PhD.

Came across an interesting degree, if anyone is looking.

First of its kind

In September, a new master of marine studies in marine spatial planning and management will launch at the Fisheries and Marine Institute (MI). It’s the first graduate level program of its kind in Canada and will provide graduates the opportunity to influence, lead and provide decision-making support for the management and planning of increasingly busy coastal and ocean spaces.

“Marine spatial planning is an emerging and important field that is gaining prominence as global demands on our coastal spaces and oceans increase,” said Carey Bonnell, head, School of Fisheries, MI. “We want to position our graduates to apply technology-supported knowledge and expertise and provide the best advice to sustain and use our marine resources.”
