The Humanitarian Aid and Development program from Charles Darwin University is an inter-disciplinary degree that will teach you to understand, critically analyse and apply concepts of community development, humanitarian practice and development aid.


Key Features

During the Humanitarian Aid and Development program from Charles Darwin University, you'll explore concepts in a variety of fields including culture studies, sociology, ethics, Indigenous knowledge, community development, international humanitarian assistance and development, project management, and language studies. You'll learn from academics and industry practitioners who have a professional focus on national and international community work, disaster relief and development.

Hands-on experience matters in the industry, which is why you'll complete a two-week intensive unit at our Casuarina campus in Darwin. This will give you the knowledge and practical skills to work in humanitarian assistance.

In your final year, you'll also complete a 400-hour placement with a community-based, humanitarian or development aid organisation in Australia or overseas. International placements are available with industry partners, including in the Asia Pacific.
