Master in Planning & Sustainability: Urban & Regional Planning

This Master aims to help students to develop a critical understanding of contemporary planning challenges for cities and urban regions, in the context of climate change and growing human needs.

The content is focused on European-wide urban issues,  but the programme is designed so that students may confront up to date scientific knowledge on planning with their own cultural background and planning experiences. Through the Master,  each student becomes familiar with the advantages and limitations of cross-national transfer of ‘good practice’ in the urban policy field.

As a research Master, this programme  trains students to deal with up to date research issues and methods. Through research, it prepares students to start a PhD or to take leadership roles in urban development and management, especially in an international context. It invites students to develop innovative concepts and strategies for qualitative interventions in urban territories.
