Course summary

Course Summary

This ground-breaking MSc course offers online training for people working in humanitarian organisations, wherever they are in the world. Our distance learning course is aimed at people who are currently, or hope to be, engaged in humanitarian work in any country and who want the skills and knowledge to offer psychosocial support. This involves helping people to maintain their positive psychological development in the face of challenges – often traumatic – being posed by their social environment. Once you have completed this course you will be able to support others within your organisation, whether or not you are part of an established human resources department.

Your Future Career

This course offers very specific, applied training. And, as the UK’s only MSc in the subject, it will give you the opportunity to go on and study for a PhD. On completion of the course, you may go on to build or further a career in a humanitarian aid agency in the UK or overseas, or within a public health or social services setting with a psychosocial focus. The course takes into account the time limitations and practical difficulties the field of psychosocial support can entail. It will cover the changing demands of different phases of aid offered – relief, transition, development and consolidation.
