Oceanography and Marine Resources
The increasing importance of sustainable management in marine and coastal ecosystems in national policies is demonstrated by the numerous international agreements that have been signed in recent years. Many coastal municipalities, responsible for ensuring the health of its beaches and coasts, increasingly require the presence of a specialized figure to coastal management and its resources, both from a biological perspective as well as from a tourism point of view. In addition to the growing need for trained personnel, there is a notable lack of training programs in the various national oceanographic disciplines, most of which are offered as postgraduate programs.
The Oceanography and Marine Resources Program is an introduction to the various disciplines that make up oceanographic studies. In this regard, it is necessary to know each of the disciplines separately and the interactions between them, in order to apply multidisciplinary criteria to coastal systems and to provide solutions to the problems that affect the coastal environment.
