Proposal

Proposal ID: 101723
Type: Change Major/Option/Minor/Certificate
Submission Date: November 1, 2017 3:29pm
Approval Date: January 9, 2018 1:54pm
Effective Term: Summer 2018
Justification:
We are revising our Fisheries Certificate requirements to reflect changes in course offerings and reorganize our requirements to focus more clearly on the intent of the certificate, which is to give students skills that help them seek employment as working fisheries biologists.

Changes include: We have streamlined the courses in the human dimensions section to reflect online availability and feedback from students about course suitability and now only require one course from this category. We are now requiring FW 554 (Fisheries Biology) for all certificate students. We have renamed the “Fisheries and Science and Ecology Subject Area” to “Fisheries Sciences and Management Subject Area” and reorganized the courses under the new heading into two broad categories to help students visualize how courses relate to each other.

Fisheries management is facing unprecedented challenges. Scientists, decision makers, and stakeholders must work together to rebuild over-fished stocks, implement ecosystem-based approaches, design global fisheries agreements, sustain coastal fishing communities, reduce over-capacity and increase the cost-effectiveness of research and management.

Oregon State University’s Graduate Certificate in Fisheries Management integrates diverse approaches and perspectives to find effective solutions for complex fisheries management problems at all levels, local to international.

Certificate Overview:

The graduate certificate is available for completion online or on-campus and is designed to accommodate the needs of private, agency and NGO professionals, decision-makers and graduate students in the U.S. and other nations.
