New IRDR Postgraduate Programmes

6 February 2013

The IRDR will launch two new postgraduate programmes: a MSc and a PGDip in Risk, Disaster and Resilience which, along with our current MRes and PGCert in Risk and Disaster Reduction, will admit students from 2013.  In these programmes students will explore the characterisation, quantification, management and reduction of risk and disasters, and their associated impacts from a diverse range of perspectives with the aim of meeting the growing need for experts trained to analyse and provide solutions to complex issues. To this end, all the IRDR post graduate programmes are centred around the IRDR core taught modules: Natural and Anthropogenic Hazards and Vulnerability, Integrating Science into Risk and Disaster Reduction, Emergency and Crisis Planning, and Emergency and Crisis Management. The programmes differ in the total time commitment needed and the share of time dedicated to taught modules and independent research.
