We have 9 Masters Degrees in Maritime Geography

Masters degrees in Maritime Geography offer advanced study of coastal and marine regions on local, national and international scales.

Related subjects include Oceanography. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Geography or Marine Biology.

Why study a Masters in Maritime Geography?

Courses in this field offer a broad investigation of the physical processes, uses and dynamics of coastal and marine areas, and how they might be sustained or developed.

For example, you might examine practices within territorial waters, including understanding a nation’s maritime police and customs, as well as their environmental and economic concerns. Alternatively, you might examine maritime traffic such as shipping and transportation, or maritime energy including wind and wave power.

Training usually covers techniques in bathymetry – measuring ocean floors and benthic zones – and GIS (geographical information systems). These are used to calculate the probability of major developments being delivered effectively, such as the building of a new harbours or offshore facilities.

Careers may include coastal management and conservation for local authorities and environmental agencies, or maritime management for efficient shipping operations across different sectors.
