Details

The Graduate Certificate in Humanitarian and Development Studies enables disaster and development workers to address challenges and opportunities associated with various forms of national and international migration; public health programming, preparedness and response; and to contribute to building the resilience of vulnerable populations.

Three core units and an elective deliver specialised knowledge spanning the key debates and complexities in humanitarian intervention, the political economies of development, global inequality, and the impact of conflict on disaster and development.
