MR3015: INTEGRATED COASTAL MANAGEMENT

This course aims to familiarise students with resource-based conflicts arising in coastal areas and to introduce the legal, policy, scientific, and economic mechanisms available to resolve them. Topics considered include the: history of ICZM; principles of ICZM; role of the European Union in ICZM and various regulatory bodies; pressures on the coast; coastal policy at the federal/national, regional and local scales; capacity building; and approaches to ICZM in the UK, Europe, North America, Australia, and other parts of the world. The course adopts a multi-disciplinary approach with a focus on coursework with student-based learning offering a range of skills.

MR3016: VALUATION AND MARINE DEVELOPMENT

The main objectives of this course are to: understand the formal processes and procedures adopted in the UK in the approach to the valuation of property; be aware of the various purposes for which valuations are required; understand the fundamental principles of the five methods of valuation used to value different property interests and how these may be applied in a marine environment context; be able to critically appraise these five valuation methods; understand the mechanisms of property development in a marine environment context and its risks and rewards.

Normally only available to students registered for the BSc MCRM

MR3511: MANAGING OUR COASTS AND SEAS

Sustainable use of marine and coastal areas is growing in scientific, political and practical importance in the UK, Europe, and around the world. Demands on the marine and coastal environment are increasing in intensity and more informed policy responses are required as a result. Coastal development needs to consider social, economic and environmental concerns. Marine spatial planning is currently regarded as of one of the most important approaches to coastal management, especially in light of climate change and growing development pressures. This module provides knowledge and skills needed to develop policy, implement planning, manage coastal environments, and undertake scientific research.

MR3512: APPLIED SIMULATION STUDIES

Simulation software offers a novel and innovative way to provide the basis to combine theory with practice and draws upon many different subjects including geography, GIS/digital mapping, geology, oil and gas exploration, the marine and coastal sciences, and business etc. The course will provide a theoretical background to the subject matter including simulation software as well as for example: the OilSim software with guided practical ‘dummy’ sessions on the use of the software tools and techniques. The second part of the course will provide a group learning environment to apply the theory in a competitive problem-solving environment.

MR4511: CURRENT ISSUES IN MARINE AND COASTAL MANAGEMENT

This core, ‘capstone’ course is designed to develop further students’ critical understanding of the contemporary intellectual and real-world contexts in which MCRM operates.  The course involves the preparation of seminar presentations and short papers on a selection of the most important coastal and marine issues facing society around the world.   This work should showcase new philosophies and methodologies, and/or the relationships between MCRM and other academic disciplines; and/or applications of MCRM to real-world problems.  Students also consider how they can best make use of their degree after graduation, with preparation of a reflective, career-planning report.
