The International Joint Graduate Program in Resilience and Safety Studies
(GP-RSS) is taught by leading experts in the field of disaster sciences
and human security. We invite world renowned faculty from our affiliated
partners worldwide, and through active student and faculty exchanges, we
hope to provide our graduate students with a research platform for integrated
academic specificity, international diversity, hands-on education in the
