Bachelor of Natural Resources | Sustainable Coastal Management | full-time-studies
The study programme, that is one of the few Bachelor Programmes in Europe focusing on Coastal issues, prepares students for working with issues that actually matters. The student will in particular be able to:
- Analyze environmental challenges and give suggestions for constructive solutions to the sometimes wicked problems.
- Understand the interplay of natural resource management issues and the environment.
- Recognize the potential of the Bioeconomy sector, with particular focus on how new innovation can both contribute to solving environmental challenges and enhance the economy.
The curriculum is multidisciplinary and places equal focus on Environmental and Social Sciences and explores the links between coastal problems and other challenges that our planet is facing currently such as marine pollution, deforestation, waste water management etc.
Active learning and practical training are seen as keys to success for developing self-reflecting and able professionals that can interact in truly multi-cultural teams. The students are more responsible for their own learning and in that way they develop entrepreneurial skills and pro-activeness which enables them to easier place themselves on the work market
Special focus is put on the coastal area and on the Baltic Sea, but the programme gives a broad environmental understanding that can be useful in several environmental careers. The curriculum consists of courses like Coastal Ecology, Sustainable Coastal Management, Environmental Impact Assessment and Fisheries Resource Management that give a good basis for the students in various environmental careers.
During the studies students are involved in project courses like Sustainable Coastal Management and Bioeconomy Innovation. In the project courses, the students get to work with assignments that are given by real clients. For example, students are working with Marine litter inventories for an NGO in Turku and with a fisherman trying to find usage for trash fish whilst addressing the eutrophication in the Baltic Sea.
