For you interested in how the human society is linked to the marine environment and ecosystem, the University of Gothenburg will offer a new interdisciplinary, 2-year master program about the sea and society in the fall of 2019. One of the courses (Blue green economy and sustainable use of marine resources) will be given as an individual course in November 2018, and it is still possible to apply.

The University of Gothenburg is Sweden's most complete environment for marine and maritime research and education. Located along the Swedish west coast, the university has close collaboration with several national marine and maritime industries, authorities and regulatory bodies such as the Swedish Agency for Marine and Water Management.

New master program

In 2019, the University of Gothenburg will start a new international, interdisciplinary master program (Master in Sea and Society) for students that want a broad marine education as training for a career in marine/maritime industry, marine authorities, environmental courts and multidisciplinary marine sciences.

One of the courses of the program is now available as an individual course for the fall semester of 2018, starting on November 7.

Bluegreen economy and sustainable use of marine resources

Bluegreen economy and sustainable use of marine resources (MAR462, 15 credits) aims to give a broad understanding of the critical balance between marine and maritime economy and use, on the one hand, and ecosystem sustainability on the other hand. The course also provides an introduction to how marine and maritime resources are owned and regulated at national, regional and global level. It discusses social, economic and ecological sustainability regarding several human uses of the sea, including off-shore industry and shipping, fisheries, marine aquaculture, and marine tourism. It will also teach how to value marine ecosystem services, and how ecological compensation can be used to prevent net losses of biodiversity.

The course consists of lectures given by university teachers from different disciplines and by external teachers from national authorities, regulatory bodies and marine/maritime industry. Group discussions and short written reports of well-defined tasks are complements. A three weeks long individual project on a topic related to the course theme constitutes an important part of the course.

It is still possible to apply for MAR462. Read more
