Course content

In the age of modern technology and 24-hour news accessible through a single click of the mouse, we often find ourselves looking helplessly at the screens as emergencies unfold in front of our eyes.

The actions taken in the initial minutes of an emergency are key. Whether they’re earthquakes, transport incidents or floods, if you want to play an active part preparing for those risks and get involved in emergency response, our MSc Emergency Management and Resilience could be for you.

This degree covers a range of specialist topics within the interdisciplinary field of emergency preparedness, response, recovery and resilience. It is practitioner-facing and combines case studies with theory and concepts, to ensure your preparedness for real life emergencies.

This course is offered, both, online and on campus.
