The Master of Marine Conservation is a programme that focuses on finding solutions to the complex issues that characterise the management of marine protected areas (MPA's).
MPA's are increasing in size due to a global awareness of the effects of climate change and the need to provide robust guardianship of our ecosystems. Worldwide, there are real challenges for how we will implement and operate MPA’s. Protected by law, these vast areas require skilled scientists and environmental managers from diverse backgrounds to monitor and protect.
If you are already working in this exciting field, the MMarineCons gives you the opportunity to upskill, change your focus, or gain research experience. Or, you may be from a non-science background and interested in focusing on policy or management.
This programme is primarily taught at the city campus with some classes and courses taught at the Leigh Marine Laboratory.
