Make sure you check on the university, college or conservatoire website for any updates about course changes as a result of COVID-19.

Course summary

Natural hazards such as earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, hurricanes and tsunamis are some of the most significant challenges facing society on a global scale. Other environmental hazards and issues such as flooding, landslides, contaminated land and polluted water often arise from human impact on the earth’s surface and resources. Furthermore, there are growing concerns that climate change is increasing the frequency and magnitude of environmental hazards and disasters. This course will provide you with a scientific understanding of the causes and effects of geoenvironmental hazards, as well as the skills to analyse, evaluate and monitor hazards and to predict, mitigate and manage their impact and future effects.
