Further study

The MDRR is part of a suite of postgraduate qualifications at UC at the intersection of cutting-edge physical and social sciences, exploring interactions between geophysical and human environments, with a focus on resilience and geophysical/social environmental dynamics – a growing area of expertise at UC.

Career Opportunities

MDRR graduates are in a position to choose between proceeding into funded doctoral programs, or pursuing careers in disaster reduction, risk assessment, hazard assessment and environmental management and consulting, as well as in local and regional government.
