About

The Master Programme in International Humanitarian Action delivered by Uppsala University is a multidisciplinary and inter-university programme given in association with different universities in Europe and the rest of the world.

Overview

The Master Programme in International Humanitarian Action delivered by Uppsala University  provides high-quality academic education and professional competences for a career in humanitarian action, emergency and disaster relief, and development at both national and international levels. The programme also supports a very active alumni network which, apart from being a lot of fun, supports new students in their careers with networking activities.

 In order to address these questions, it was felt that a more professional approach was required, combining academic higher education and professional competences. The programme is administered by the Department of Theology, but is multidisciplinary.

Career

This programme provides you with a high-quality academic education and professional competences tailored to a career in the areas of international humanitarian action, emergency and disaster relief, and development.
