This Advanced Program focuses on the pressing issues and challenges related to maritime affairs, using teaching and research to enhance strategic thinking and action of practitioners and decision makers. It is designed for midcareer and younger professionals of the maritime sector, including navy and coast guard personnel, port administrators, legal practitioners and others. Students will be recruited nationally and internationally. Studying will be both residential and online. Residential classes will take place in Mindelo, S. Vicente, Cape Verde. Field trips and visits to the partner institutions in Portugal and Finland will be scheduled to take place after finishing course work, preferably in April. Coursework will be credited to a Master program in a related field by the Atlantic Technical University and/or Satakunta University of Applied Sciences, if approved by their admissions committees.

Academic program and coursework:
This Advanced Program is structured in four trimesters, of which trimesters one to three are dedicated to coursework, and trimester four is dedicated to a field trip to Portugal and Finland for seminars and visits, and for research and preparation of the final paper. Students who are eventually accepted into a MA degree-program will not need to produce a final paper. Coursework will allow students to reflect on and analyze current issues and develop skills in response. The plan of study includes nine 20-hour modules (3ECTs each), to be taught during 5 consecutive days of class per month. At the end of the program stu-dents will develop a project in the form of a report or dissertation. The re-search project will focus on a subject of the student’s choice, relevant to his/her work. Also, the project will serve the purpose of developing students’ research skills for use in their career or for further study. Students will be supported by a faculty adviser of their choice while working on their final paper.
