This Risk Analysis, Disasters and Resilience MSc programme will give you an advanced foundation in interdisciplinary studies of environmental, societal and technological risk and disaster in the global North and South. It's unique in uniting critical social and development perspectives on the underlying causes of disasters with expertise on governing, managing and communicating risks across a wide range of societal and public and private sector contexts.
Throughout this MSc you'll become equipped with the skills to critically analyse risk and disasters and develop reflexive problem-solving strategies, thanks to our unique combination of scholarship from development geography and political science to sociology and psychology. You'll gain an understanding of differential vulnerability and exposure to hazard and how they shape adaptation and resilience. You'll also build your knowledge of the political, organisational and societal contexts that shape decisions, actions and public communication on risk and disasters.
