Joint Master’s Programme in International Humanitarian Action

What does the master programme consist of?

Introduction


Why offer a Master’s degree in humanitarian action?

The main objective of offering a Master’s degree in humanitarian action is to address the growing need for university qualifications that have been specifically designed to tackle complex humanitarian emergencies.

Unfortunately, not only have humanitarian crises increased in number, but they have also become more complex. The number of people and areas affected by natural and man-made disasters has risen and will continue to grow in the middle and long term due to the interrelated impact of current and emerging world tendencies such as climate change, the food crisis, the financial crisis, extreme poverty, urban development, the water shortage, energy security, migration and population growth. As a result, there is higher demand for qualified staff who can take on the new humanitarian action challenges, demonstrating proven supervision skills and the capacity to lead. These people must be equipped to set priorities and plan operations to successfully address humanitarian crises. 


What is the interest or main value added of studying a Master's degree in the International Humanitarian Action field?

The value added of holding qualifications like the Máster Universitario Erasmus Mundus en Acción Internacional Humanitaria- International Humanitarian Action (NOHA) is that it is a high quality programme specifically designed for people who work or plan to work in the humanitarian action area in positions of responsibility in national and international organisations, both in office and field work.


Why NOHA?

In September 2004, the European Commission chose the NOHA Master’s programme as one of the leading Erasmus Mundus Master's programmes.
  • The Master’s degree in International Humanitarian Actions ranks first in the Cooperation category of 2019/2020 Master's programmes in El Mundo.
