From natural and human-made disasters, complex emergencies and conflict to environmental sustainability and community development, this globally-focused course explores real-world problems and how to conceptualise and address them.
You will learn how to prepare for, and respond in a crisis. You will develop the planning skills to help minimise impact and avert problems where possible. You will develop advanced knowledge, project management and analytical skills whilst developing a specialism in an area of your choice.
The course is supported by the Disaster and Development Network (DDN) hosted by Northumbria University, which can lead to placements across the world. Our highly employable graduates have moved into a range of exciting careers, including in the UN, governments, development, humanitarian aid organisations, charities and local authorities.
Who would this Course suit?
Are you keen to address real-world problems of disaster and development, shape policy and practice, and to help communities help themselves? This course is equally relevant for those working in the field who wish to strengthen their academic and professional knowledge as it is for those seeking a change of direction.
A minimum of a lower second class honours degree in an appropriate subject (i.e. geography, environmental management/studies, economics, sociology) or appropriate professional experience and/or qualifications.
