Course content:

This course provides students with a thorough grounding in risk management theory and its application to real world problems. Students will have the opportunity to engage in a wide-ranging interdisciplinary analysis of the extent, effects and explanations of crisis and disaster, and the use of risk theory. As well as ensuring students are up-to-date with the latest developments in risk management, the course will provide them with the skills and confidence to plan and execute research and engage in debate. Students will develop skills in evaluating information critically, communicating ideas clearly, undertaking advanced conceptual analysis, understanding and applying theories and models, using information sources effectively, reporting and interpreting research critically, and developing new approaches to problem-solving.
