Coursework degrees

ANCORS offers four unique coursework award programs, which are available to study on campus and online.

These multidisciplinary programs have a practical focus designed to meet the mid-career development needs of maritime professionals. They have been designed for those working in ocean-related policy development, legal or maritime enforcement roles, as well as those involved in ocean industries. The programs support the personnel development needs of government agencies, navies and coast guards, regional and international organizations, NGOs, and fisheries and other ocean industries.

All degrees include specialised subject options encompassing the wide range of ANCORS expertise.
