Our MSc International Disaster Management and Humanitarian Response distance learning course will enable you to develop the skills and knowledge needed to respond to and help prevent disasters.
When disasters strike suddenly, they require a quick response, and create burdens for rescue and humanitarian workers.
There is a great demand not only for preparing and equipping workers prior to the disaster event, but also building knowledge and skills to prevent disasters from occurring.
A community that has both a team with the capacity to prevent disasters and a ready-to-respond team can reduce disaster mortality and economic losses.
Our master's course is consistent with the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (SFDRR) 2015-2030, which emphasises disaster education, including for personnel who have difficulty in attending conventional face-to-face provisions.
This course has been designed to equip you with advanced knowledge, and to continue your personal development in disaster risk management and humanitarianism.
You will learn to conduct theoretical and practical analysis, as well as evaluation to support disaster management and humanitarian action in global health contexts.
This course offers flexible online study that enables part-time students to obtain a master's degree without residency and boundary restrictions.
