Details

The Master of Humanitarian and Development Studies responds to the need for qualified workers in disaster relief and development, in government and non-government agencies involved in humanitarian operations and development practice. The program addresses challenges and opportunities associated with various forms of national and international migration; public health programming, preparedness and response; and building the resilience of vulnerable populations.

The purpose of the degree is for the practical application of specialised theoretical knowledge in humanitarian and development contexts. This is complemented by pathways to advanced research, and by career development support through extensive networks and partnerships, including with International non-government organisations.

Tailored towards individual needs and interests, this degree is linked to the specific industry requirements of humanitarian and development practitioners.
