Course summary

As demand grows around a strategic global response to the ever-changing and increasing risks, shocks and conflicts arising from natural and anthropogenic hazards, it is increasingly important that we build an understanding of the root causes of vulnerability to disasters and conflicts as a pathway to addressing such contemporary international problems.BSc International Disaster Management and Humanitarian Response is a multidisciplinary course designed to enhance collaboration amongst natural and social sciences, medicine and the arts. This course seeks to bridge the divide between development, disaster risk management, and peace and conflict studies.As a student you will explore these contemporary issues and challenges - both globally and locally in the UK. Through the course you can expect to build research expertise, practical knowledge and management skills in disaster preparedness, response and recovery in order to reduce negative impacts on health, social, economic and environmental spheres. You will also focus learning on the causes and consequences of conflict as well as conflict resolution and peacebuilding - again from an international and local perspective.You will find this multidisciplinary course unique as you will be taught by an interdisciplinary team of lecturers, including anthropologists, geographers, political scientists, historians and development scholars. As such, your learning will be truly interdisciplinary and allow you to understand disaster management, humanitarianism and peace building from a multi-disciplinary perspective and an integrated approach to the field. You will also have the opportunity to take optional course units in disciplines such as Geography, Politics, Theology, Languages, and Anthropology. This will provide you with wide options to choose from whilst having a grounding in peace and conflict studies, humanitarianism and disaster management. Flexible Honours may allow you to study an additional arts, languages or cultures subject.We also recognise there is great demand from employers in the humanitarian sector for languages. Therefore, up to a third of your degree can be made up of studying languages, such as French, Arabic, German, or Russian.
