Career opportunities

You will be exposed to the diverse methodologies and knowledge areas of these two distinct disciplines, and able to draw on their points of convergence.

The study of humanitarianism and responses to conflict and disaster is dependent not just on knowledge of global strategies, dynamics and practices but also on regional specificities.

For that reason, by combining learning about humanitarianism with Modern Languages - courses that depend on the integrated study of linguistic knowledge and regional culture and history - you will be able to demonstrate a range of different intellectual and practical skills.

The majority of students in HCRI take the degree in International Disaster Management and Humanitarian Response because they plan to work overseas, in organisations that are engaging in disaster risk management, humanitarian response, peace building and conflict resolution.

Therefore, having an excellent grasp of a language other than English is extremely beneficial, and will significantly increase your employability. 

The University has its own dedicated Careers Service that you would have full access to as a student and for two years after you graduate. At Manchester you will have access to a number of opportunities to help boost your employability .
