Our Natural Hazard Management (NHM) course presents you with opportunities to gain practical (field/laboratory) experience of hazard assessment in British and overseas settings, and to develop the ability to apply geospatial mapping technologies (e.g. Geographical Information Systems (GIS), Global Positioning Systems (GPS) and Remote Sensing (RS)) to evaluate/manage risks posed by natural hazards.
The Department of Psychology at Chester offers both Single Honours and Combined Honours degrees. Many Psychology departments offer Single Honours degrees accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS). However, Chester is unusual in that it also offers accredited Combined Honours degrees for students who major in Psychology.

Natural Hazard Management: Assessment is through examination and continuous coursework assignments. You will engage in a range of coursework, which may include podcasting, oral presentations, posters, briefing papers, emergency simulations (role play), laboratory/field reports and essays.
Approximately 60-65% of the assessment in Year 1 is through coursework, rising to 75-80% in Year 3.
Psychology: Assessment methods for each module vary, but usually include coursework and examinations. The coursework may involve a traditional essay or, more commonly, a workshop task, presentation, or a case study.
Assessments are designed to develop your employability skills as well as allowing you to show your understanding of psychology.
