International maritime policy may be broadly defined as the area of private and public policy concerned with the economics of maritime transport, ports and terminals; national and international regulation; maritime security and defence; maritime labour; and oceanic law, policy and management.
International and interdisciplinary in approach, the programme is of interest to maritime professionals in both sea- and shore-based sectors seeking to develop an in-depth understanding of current issues and future developments, public policy professionals seeking to develop maritime expertise, and graduates in maritime studies and public policy areas seeking further specialisation and postgraduate qualifications.
The programme combines lectures, tutorials, group and individual projects, and seminars, and provides opportunities to learn from the experience of those directly involved with international maritime policy.
The Greenwich Maritime Institute keeps in close touch with developments in the maritime sector through its Advisory Committee, representing a range of specialist professional interests. Certain courses are accredited by the Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers. Other links include those to the museum sector, in particular the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich, the Maritime London Promotion Group, the Greenwich Forum, Sea Vision UK and the London Universities Maritime Law and Policy Group.
The aims of the programme are:
* To establish knowledge and understanding of theoretical and practical issues affecting private and public maritime policy
* To enable an appreciation of comparative approaches to national aspects of maritime policy
* To provide the opportunity for students to learn from the experience of current practitioners in the maritime field.

* Case Studies in Maritime Policy (20 credits)
* Economics of International Shipping (20 credits)
* Public Shipping Law (20 credits)
