Course content

You will examine risk and resilience in relation to environmental hazards, climate vulnerability and securityrelated risk, but will also develop your own thinking in regards to risk research, including broader environmental change, disaster risk reduction, risk and insurance, health, migration, social policy, governance, borders and terrorism.

Dealing with risk as a function of both the natural and social environments we live in, the course responds to the growing realisation that many risks are being created through social processes bound to questions of security and vulnerability, including the ways that risk techniques are emerging and being employed as a means of securing uncertain futures.

Core modules:

• Understanding Risk

• Social Dimensions of Risk and Resilience

• Risk Frontiers

• Using Geographical Skills and Techniques

• Dissertation by Research (or) Vocational Dissertation.
