UM Rosenstiel School Offers New Graduate Degree Track in Natural Hazard and Catastrophe Analytics

MIAMI – The University of Miami (UM) Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science is offering a new Master of Professional Science (MPS) degree track in Natural Hazard and Catastrophe Analytics starting Fall 2015. The World Bank estimates that annual losses from natural disasters approach $200B, with these costs borne by both the private and public sectors. To meet society’s need for a skilled workforce, this track will provide graduate students with the skills and knowledge necessary to understand earth’s natural hazards, such as hurricanes, flooding, and earthquakes, and the data analytics tools required to assess the associated risks. The MPS program at the UM Rosenstiel School is an accelerated graduate degree program intended for students who seek advanced training in natural science-related fields. Students in the catastrophe track come from a wide range of disciplines, including business, emergency management, engineering, public health and science. The coursework, which can be completed in one year, additionally exposes students to the legal and regulatory knowledge, communication training, and project management skills required to assess risks and exposures associated with natural hazards.
