Core units

  • Developing Policies and Plans: You will be introduced to the importance of sound disaster management plans and frameworks. Internationally, many nations still do not have developed disaster management plans, and this unit has been developed over several years and in multiple countries to assist national governments and their agencies to address this vital issue. The principles of this unit underpin each of the subsequent units.

  • Management of Communications and Learning: This unit teaches you how to communicate learning in effective and attractive ways; gaining the interest of audiences, drawing upon audience experience and knowledge, winning audience cooperation for greater integrated activities, and creating relevant participatory exercises from academic and practical-based literature to help turn lessons identified into lessons learned. In this unit you will have the opportunity to write your own disaster management exercise.

  • Dissertation: An opportunity to study a disaster management topic in-depth, showing your understanding of it. The dissertation is the conclusion of your learning experience, where you'll carry out a research project. You'll use appropriate research methodology to collect and analyse data and present your findings. Your dissertation will be 15,000 words, and you'll be taught about research methods.
