ENSC 350 - Humans: Creatures of the Coast

3 credits
This course examines the major issues affecting coastal zones of the world. The range of management and governance themes used in shaping coastal behavior is explored from both an integrative and multi-disciplinary perspective. In particular, the following three issues are examined: the threat to coastal environments from a rapidly growing human population and pollution; the destruction of critical resources and vital ecosystems through unsustainable economic activities; and the difficult challenges governments face in crafting effective coastal management initiatives. The course takes a global perspective, but some emphasis will be given to coastal zones of the United States. PSRC.
