We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Emergency and Disaster Management equip postgraduates with an understanding of the tools necessary to prevent potentially dangerous events – and to cope with them when they occur. This includes techniques in emergency planning, crisis management and disaster response.
Courses are typically taught MSc degrees, with admission requirements usually including an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject. Work experience may also be expected in some cases.
Risks to public safety are increasing with population growth, climate change and urbanisation. Whether you are dealing with an accident, epidemic, natural disaster, or terrorist attack, your Masters will provide you with the techniques to manage these circumstances effectively.
With this in mind, you will learn to create plans which reduce a community’s vulnerability to hazards. This includes local and regional management through to national and international management. You will consider the logistics and financial planning involved in each component of these plans, from providing humanitarian aid to managing restoration of infrastructure.
Careers with a Masters in Emergency and Disaster Management may include: industrial consultancy for international corporations; policy-making for government agencies, NGOs and charities; administration for the emergency services and civil defence; insurance broking for SMEs or large organisations.
