MCOP 593: Seminar in Coastal and Ocean Policy (Problem Orientation)

The first half of this class focused on the academic theory of problem orientation and demonstrated in several cases how notable scholars applied theory.  As you think and write about your topic, be sure to reflect on and incorporate these early ideas.  


The second half of the course is dedicated to a collaborative exploration of your individually chosen topics.  While I interject here and there, each of you have the opportunity to present material to classmates for review, comment and discussion.  In this sense, you each lead the class through the practice of inquiry.
