AQS 352 - Public Aquarium Management


Prerequisites: None
This course will instruct students in all aspects of the management of a large public aquarium facility. This includes how to maintain a healthy life support system for display organisms as well as an overview of the management of staff, interns and volunteers, financial considerations, corporate structure, regulatory requirements, permitting, marketing and all aspects of operating a large not-for-profit organization. This will be accomplished through examination of the operations and management structure of the New England Aquarium and will rely on tours of the facility and a series of seminars offered by the key departmental heads at the facility. It is anticipated that the skills acquired in this course can be applicable to a wide variety of not-for-profit environmental and educational organizations.
