Introduction to GIMA


The Graduate Institute of Marine Affairs at the National Sun Yat-sen University distinguishes itself in both research and teaching by its marine legal-policy and social science orientation. The Institute has adopted a program vision of “developing a leading marine affairs and policy graduate institute and making academic contributions to the shaping of national marine policy and to the safeguarding of national interests in the oceans”.
Based on this vision, as well as the commitment of our faculty members, the Institute is developing along three primary dimensions in its teaching and research; namely, marine laws and policy, marine fisheries resources management, and coastal zone management. The educational goal and expectation of the Institute is that our graduates will develop superior expertise in marine policy and affairs for the service of the Nation and of the ocean industries.
