You will find this multidisciplinary programme unique , with the core courses demonstrating the linkages across disaster risk management, climate change, sustainable development and humanitarian action. The compulsory courses create an integrated approach to the field - rather than offering a selection of discrete modules available in geography, sociology, history and environmental science rather than a dedicated programme. The University of Manchester is unique in having strengths in humanitarian and conflict response underpinned by history, politics, medicine, geography and development studies. This will provide you with wide options to choose from whilst having a grounding in humanitarianism and disaster management. For the third level dissertation you will be asked to choose from a wide range of topics that relate to disaster management and humanitarian response.
