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. The course 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.
Normally a minimum of a lower 2nd Class UK Honours degree in a relevant discipline or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard is required. Applicants with a different degree, or with no degree but with relevant professional experience, will be considered.
Core modules: integrating science into risk and disaster reduction; natural and anthropogenic hazards and vulnerability; emergency and crisis planning; emergency and crisis management.
The programme is delivered through a combination of lectures, directed reading and practical problem-solving exercises. Assessment is by oral and written examination, assessed practicals and the independent project. Practical applications of critical and creative problem solving will be encouraged and assessed throughout.
