This report contains recommended guidelines on marine science teaching and training at the first degree level, equated here with a Bachelor of Science, except in those countries in which the first degree corresponds to a Master of Science or its equivalent. The report was prepared by participants attending an international workshop held at Unesco, Paris from 17 to 21 November 1986.Three instructional models are presented: the first one for a minimal programme, the second one leading to a first degree with marine science emphasis, and the third on leading to a first degree in marine science. The report includes discussions on necessary and desirable requirements, in terms of human resources and physical facilities, and on the need for practical experience and curriculum assessment. It further gives recommendations for introducing and strengthening first degree marine science in general. This workshop was the sixth in a series of Unesco-sponsored workshops aimed at providing guidelines for the establishment and reinforcement of teaching and training in marine science and related fields at different educational levels.
