Disaster impacts and conflict reduce or reverse economic growth, diminish household capacity and plunge an ever-increasing number of people into poverty. Despite all our efforts, inequality continues to increase, as does our global population’s vulnerability to disaster.
Studied on campus or 100% online and learning from our team and alumni associates in disaster management, humanitarian assistance, capacity building and disaster risk reduction, this specialist master’s course encompasses up-to-date thinking in disaster theory, management policy, strategy and practice. The modules that comprise this course are specifically designed for those on the MSc Disaster Management and Resilience course.
Our part-time students of the Disaster Management and Resilience course at Coventry University are often sponsored by their employers, and successful completion of this postgraduate level qualification could provide the credibility needed to progress in your organisation and career.
Through the course we explore how modern society is creating ever more complex risk and interdependency. The impact of features such as societal inequalities, social tension, extremism, global supply and economic instability, reliance on technology, severe weather conditions, pandemic disease and climate change means that there are now many career opportunities in this field.
When you successfully graduate, you could pursue or further a career in sectors including national and local government, NGO’s, UN organisations and other regional organisations, healthcare or consultancy.
Our current teaching staff and the university’s Talent Team can support your search for employment in the UK or overseas by making use of our 25 years of alumni network industrial contacts, careers events, recruitment fairs and individual advice.
