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.
Normally a minimum of an upper 2nd Class UK Honours degree in a relevant discipline or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard is required.
Skills modules: risk and disaster reduction research tools; research appraisal and proposal; options: integrating science into risk and disaster reduction; natural and anthropegenic hazards and vulnerability; emergency and crisis planning; emergency and crisis management.
The programme is delivered through a combination of lectures, directed reading, practical problem-solving exercises and a real-time disaster scenario event, with an emphasis on hands-on learning and tutorial-style dialogue between students and lecturers. Assessment is through coursework, examination, essays, project reports, oral and poster presentations, and the research dissertation.
