Risk and Disaster Reduction

Risk and disaster reduction, particularly within the contexts of dealing with uncertainty and increasing resilience, are high on local, national and international agendas.

This is a research-intensive programme, which aims to meet the rapidly growing need for experts trained to analyse and provide solutions to complex issues relating to risk and disasters.

This course is suitable for students who want to have a wide range of taught courses, whilst still completing a substantial independent project. The taught courses are the focus of the programme, with the project constituting one third of the programme credits.

This programme contains the same  taught courses as the MSc, but no independent research project.

This certificate offers students the opportunity to gain a sound grasp of the characteristics of risk and disasters and their past, present and future impacts on society.
