Program Description:

Critical incident commanders - whether they are from the police, fire and rescue services, medical services, or the military - constantly need to make life-and-death decisions. These decisions often have profound consequences for potential victims, responding organisations, politicians and other stakeholders, and must be made under extreme time pressure. In many areas there has been a gap between the academic skills and skilled practitioners. This is particularly so in the area of emergency management which involves several agencies. This programme of study aims to bridge this gap by providing an academic underpinning to the skill development of critical incident managers. The degree enables you to focus upon areas of specialisation within your professional field and to develop the advanced research skills and theoretical awareness necessary to complete a substantial piece of research.
