DOCTOR OF PHILOSOPHY MAJORING IN DISASTER MANAGEMENT (Programme Code: BC490025)
360 credits

Our PhD majoring in Disaster Management is a 360-credit specialised programme at NQF Level 10. It is based purely on research, and students can register at any time of the academic year. The minimum entrance requirement is a good and relevant master's degree at NQF Level 9 (see Applications for details). An applicant whose master’s degree is not in disaster management or disaster risk management may be required to register for some of our postgraduate and master’s modules for non-degree purposes. The application process includes the applicant submitting a concept note, later developing and defending a research proposal.

With a PhD majoring in Disaster Management, you will become an expert in your chosen area of disaster risk management. 

During or upon completion of their study, the student is expected to present at least one paper at a recognised national or international conference as well as publish at least an article in one internationally accredited journal.
