This program includes options for an internship or research project. The program is structured to provide a balance between conceptual/theoretical background and practical applied skills. As such, students will develop a broad level understanding of planning processes and the governance, policy/legislative, ecological, social, cultural and economic elements of coastal and ocean areas complemented by practical and applied skills for stakeholder engagement, project management and utilization of geospatial technology to support planning efforts. Throughout the program, courses will be structured to introduce theoretical concepts and then examine real world examples of their application. Students will complete seven core courses, an internship (MSTM 6019) or research project, and choose one of three options for elective course selection.
