SML Master’s degree

environmental management

The specialitie Environmental Management (EGEL) is based on the skills developed in three IUEM research units: LETG (coastal and marine geography), Lemar (biology, chemistry, marine ecology) and Amure (law and economics).

Between 2010 and 2014, 9% of students continued their studies. 70% found a job in the field of coastal environment. Example of positions: project manager (cartographer, generalist of the environment), biologist / scientific diver, project or mission manager (marine environment, fisheries and shellfish farming, marine protected areas, Natura 2000, water development and management scheme, etc.).

Considering the recent proliferation of texts related to the management of the sea and the coastline (Grenelle de la Mer, Marine Strategy Framework Directive, French Maritime Strategy), jobs focused on the sea should be developed in the fields of maritime spatial planning and marine energy. On the coast, issues related to climate change require expertise in the field of coastal risks.

Learning path

EGEL- Expertise and management of the coastal environment

EGEL is the multidisciplinary learning path of the SML master’s degree. The multidisciplinary content of the teaching combines five main disciplines (geography, biology, chemistry, law and economics). Local and national socio-professional stakeholders play a major role in EGEL training, particularly in M2, where 70% of them are involved. The courses include 80 professionals for a total of nearly 250 hours (including 200 hours in M2, or 45% of the courses). Some of these interventions are carried out in the field, thus allowing students to take better account of realities.
