In recent years, an increase in natural and human created disasters have adversely impacted the local communities and nations as a whole. Some disasters have international impacts requiring international intervention. Constructing a disaster resilient system involves interventions in the preparedness, emergency response and redevelopment phases of the disaster management cycle. Effective management of disasters involves numerous stakeholders including governments (local, state and federal), non-governmental organisations (not for profit and for profit) and communities (local, national and international) working together. This program applies recognised disaster management practices, providing graduates with the unique ability to work on approaches to building disaster resilience in context specific situations. The professional application of disaster management skills and techniques for preparing and responding to post disaster situations will develop graduates who are a valuable resource for local government bodies, non-governmental organisations, and national and international organisations/business involved or seeking to be involved in disaster management. Throughout this program you will develop unique and specialised strategic and operational disaster management skills that can be applied in the event of a disaster. As one of the only universities to offer this disaster management degree accommodating multiple discipline backgrounds, the University of Newcastle educates graduates to be immediately valuable to multiple disaster management stakeholder groups. Our advanced online learning system provides you with the flexibility and support to study anytime, anywhere to balance work, life and study. You can achieve your Master of Disaster Preparedness and Reconstruction at a time that suits you. Is it for you? Hazards, natural or man-made, can create disaster events that leave communities in distress. Preparing for disasters require multiple stakeholder engagement and effective management of the goals. The pressure to urgently address complex and difficult disaster management decisions can result in reactive policies that may increase long-term risks and vulnerability of affected populations. Regardless of cause or blame, rebuilding the communities and infrastructure promptly and strategically with appropriately devised short-term and long term planning is paramount. Disaster preparedness and reconstruction involves primarily disaster risk reduction and building a resilient system, from a technical, economic, socio cultural and policy perspectives. Therefore, the management of situations resulting from disasters requires diverse knowledge, skills and approaches but it will essentially draw on fundamental theories and practices form multiple disciplines. In the Master of Disaster Preparedness and Reconstruction you will learn the theory and practice of disaster management, from both disaster preparedness and post disaster reconstruction perspectives. This program, created by experienced professionals, will prepare you with the skills and knowledge to engage in the appropriate disaster management practices accommodating short and long term considerations aimed at building a resilient system. You will engage in practice and form the policies based on informed situational/critical analysis. If you would gain satisfaction from playing a key role in protecting and rebuilding communities from and after traumatic disasters, then the Master of Disaster Preparedness and Reconstruction could be for you. Career Pathways The current trend in disaster events and created a significant domestic and international interest in the disaster management trained professionals. This program specifically address the niche and relatively new market encompassing professionals in government, for profit and not for profit sectors, who engage in or planning to engage in disaster management without a formal qualification in disaster management. With a Master of Disaster Preparedness and Reconstruction you will have unique and specialised disaster management skills to be applied in the disaster management process. As one of the only universities to offer this disaster management degree accommodating multiple discipline backgrounds, the University of Newcastle educates graduates to be immediately valuable to multiple disaster management stakeholder groups including: State, federal and local government non-governmental organisations (NGOs); and private contracting organisations.

Master in Archaeology

Research Degrees: MSc, MPhil, PhD

Background

Aberdeen's Department of Archaeology is unique in the United Kingdom in that it focuses explicitly on the lifeways and worldviews of northern cultures, encompassing a region that takes in the North Atlantic, Northern Eurasia, high-latitude North America and the North Pacific.

Popular perception holds that if the 'cradle of civilization' was nurtured in warm southern climes, then the north was little more than a frozen wasteland. Such caricatures, of course, are hard to support when we consider the almost infinite and varied evidence of the human condition in the northern world. While often living in environments which could be less than favourable and even hostile, northern peoples were anything but more primitive versions of those farther south.... [-]
