Our courses



CENDEP’s current offerings comprise PhDs, a Masters degree and Postgraduate Certificates. The Masters Degree programme in Development and Emergency Practice (DEP), first offered in 1991 is one of the oldest in Europe. Many of the 900+ students from across the World who have attended DEP have gone on to hold influential positions for national governments, NGOs, UN agencies and international donors.

The online PGCert in Humanitarian Action and Conflict is offered over two semesters and is targeted at remote field based aid workers. The PGCert in Shelter after Disaster, first offered in 2011 and believed to be the first course of its kind, runs for one semester and is targeted to those working in the complex area of post-disaster reconstruction.
