This new Masters offers a unique opportunity to study coastal resilience from a trans-Atlantic perspective. ​The programme is jointly taught by LJMU and Southern Connecticut State University so you will benefit from studying coastal resilience in both the UK and the USA.

Coastlines and coastal seas are vitally important to the world’s population and provide a focus for transport, food, energy production, tourism, leisure and livelihood. Changes in the world’s oceans – particularly those due to climate change – will have a profound impact on coastal regions, calling for increased sustainable planning and decision making.
