The Master’s Programme in International Humanitarian Action is a multidisciplinary and inter-university programme given in association with different universities in Europe and the rest of the world. It provides high-quality academic education and professional competences for a career in humanitarian action, emergency and disaster relief, and development at both national and international levels. The programme also supports a very active alumni network which, apart from being a lot of fun, supports new students in their careers with networking activities.
WHY THIS PROGRAMME?
NOHA stands for Network on Humanitarian Action, which is the organisation responsible for this joint European Master’s programme.
The programme was launched in 1993 because of a growing concern about the increase in disasters and conflicts in the world and the complex consequences for society. In order to address these questions, it was felt that a more professional approach was required, combining academic higher education and professional competences. The programme is administered by the Department of Theology, but is multidisciplinary.
The education is supported by the European Commission and is one of the best-established Master’s programmes in humanitarian action. NOHA links twelve core universities in Europe with many partner universities around the globe. The Master’s programme has on three occasions been awarded Erasmus Mundus Programme status, thus facilitating student and scholar mobility within the network.
The Master’s Programme in International Humanitarian Action offers a multidisciplinary education which seeks to teach you as a student core competences for a career in humanitarian action. The overall aim is to train you to develop the analytical and practical skills needed by professional humanitarian workers – for example, an interdisciplinary understanding of emergency situations and a capacity to organise and plan humanitarian relief operations. The duration of the Master’s programme is two years of full-time study.
In the second semester you will go on exchange to one of seven NOHA partner universities in Europe. In the third semester you can either move to a partner university in or outside Europe or take a longer work placement at a national or international organisation in the humanitarian sector and follow a career development module.
The programme leads to a Master of Arts in Theology (120 credits) with International Humanitarian Action as the main field of study.
