As disaster and emergency management professionals know, disasters are more than just hazards to avoid. To be a Master of Disaster, you need to see disasters in relation to the world itself.
This two-year interdisciplinary Disaster and Emergency Management (Blended) course at Royal Roads University looks at disaster and emergency management in an integrated, holistic way.
You'll learn how the environment, society, economics and politics all have an impact on how disasters unfold. You'll study how to plan for and mitigate disasters and emergencies, and to promote sustainable recovery when disaster strikes. And you'll look at ways to support communities at risk, increasing community resilience.
This program is meant for disaster and emergency management professionals and those who aspire to work in this growing field.
Once you have completed this program, you'll have skills like critical thinking, communication and an understanding of best practices to work in sectors like international development, disaster management and mitigation, emergency response and international NGOs.
