BS Disaster Management

Program Introduction

Rapid population growth, urbanization, climate change and poverty has resulted in an increased vulnerability of millions of people in the country. To achieve the organization-level targets under UNSDF/OPIII, the capacity building of strategic planners, and mainstreaming of Disaster Risk Reduction practices in their organizations is required. The National Disaster Management Plan (NDMP) and National Flood Protection Plan IV (NFPP-IV), with a financial outlay of $3 billion, inevitably requires highly qualified Disaster Management professionals in the mid to long term.

The BS in Disaster Management program at the School of Governance and Society in UMT provides an opportunity for the students to acquire knowledge related to disaster management and conduct interdisciplinary research. Our faculty comprises some of the top researchers and academicians in the field of Disaster Management. The BS in Disaster Management program therefore provides for an unmet need for quality education in the field of disaster management, compatible with the curriculum suggested by the HEC. The program has a profound impact on the society by providing professional knowledge and skills that can help manage and subsequently reduce disaster risk.
