Top Masters Degrees in Coastal and Marine Management in Asia 2019

Coastal and Marine Management

A masters refers to the completion of a graduate study program that prepares students to further their knowledge of a specific subject or advance their careers. The majority of masters are granted by state or public universities.

Some coastal and marine management programs focus on current issues arising from the overuse of coastal areas as well as alternative solutions to manage their resources. Students’ instruction often includes both classroom lectures and fieldwork.

Asia is the world's largest and most populous continent, located primarily in the eastern and northern hemispheres. It covers 8.7% of the Earth's total surface area and comprises 30% of its land area.

MPhil in Marine Environmental Science

The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology
Campus Full time Part time 2 - 4  January 2019 Hong Kong

The MPhil programme aims to train postgraduate students to conduct independent research in Marine Environmental Science. Submission and successful defence of a thesis based on original research are required. [+]

The Environment has been degrading at an alarming rate mainly due to the unsustainable development and the unsustainable use of natural resources. Although environmental conservation has developed significantly over the past few decades, environmental problems have been evolving both in terms of nature and scale. Methods of resolving many environmental problems remain controversial.

Master in Marine Science (MarS)

King Abdullah University of Science and Technology
Campus September 2019 Saudi Arabia Thuwal

The Marine Science (MarS) Program takes advantage of KAUST’s location on the Red Sea, a living laboratory with great potential for exciting science. The program addresses the biology and ecology of the multitude of marine life forms. There is an intentional focus on the local Red Sea system, both as a primary study system and as a system with which general concepts from other marine systems can be compared. [+]

ABOUT THE PROGRAM The Marine Science (MarS) Program takes advantage of KAUST’s location on the Red Sea, a living laboratory with great potential for exciting science. The program addresses the biology and ecology of the multitude of marine life forms. There is an intentional focus on the local Red Sea system, both as a primary study system and as a system with which general concepts from other marine systems can be compared. The goal of the Marine Science Program is to develop an integrated understanding of the Red Sea’s ecosystem as well as marine ecosystems in general, including fundamental biology at the molecular and genomic levels, symbiosis with algae and prokaryotes (Bacteria and Archaea), associated communities of fish and corals and the physical and chemical environment that impacts and shapes them. This understanding could have an impact on global carbon cycling, endangered species and how we manage the harvesting of resources from the Oceans. MASTERS DEGREE ... [-]
