About

The Master of Disaster, Design and Development (MoDDD) is the only degree of its kind in the Asia Pacific region that enables students to work full time, while studying most of their degree online, before transitioning their careers into the humanitarian and disaster management sectors.

There is an increasing need to respond to the displacement and destruction of communities from both natural and manmade disasters and a critical need to build the resilience of vulnerable communities in disaster-prone areas.

MoDDD provides a global learning platform that will enable graduates to work locally and internationally in the disaster and development fields by harnessing community-based, interdisciplinary thinking.

This unique Masters allows students to connect with academic staff, peers and industry professionals through predominantly on-line learning courses, framed by two campus intensive four-day seminars and workshops in Melbourne, Australia. Optional field trips to Ecuador, Japan and Vietnam provide an opportunity to gain ‘hands-on’ experience in the disaster and development fields.

Developed in close collaboration with the humanitarian sector, including the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), World Vision International and UN-Habitat, the degree is intended for those with diverse knowledge and skills in design, built environment, project management, engineering, social sciences, communication or health.
