Course summary

Overview

This MCD taught programme is fully accredited by the Royal Town Planning Institute and will introduce you to the essential aspects of town and regional planning.

You’ll learn about the social, economic and environmental challenges planners face, whilst becoming familiar with planning tools, methods and how they can be applied to particular planning contexts.

Three MCD pathways are available, two of which have been tailored specifically to meet the needs of students who have completed an undergraduate degree in planning at the University of Liverpool or XJTLU: Pathway B (Urban Design) and Pathway C (Spatial Modelling). Pathway A (Spatial Planning) is intended for students with an undergraduate degree in one of a range of disciplines cognate to planning, such as geography, sociology, environmental studies or politics; or for part-time students working in planning practice. All three MCD pathways are accredited by the Royal Town Planning Institute.

Available full-time over a year or part-time over two years, this intensive course combines lectures and seminars with individual coursework and group projects.

A field visit to another European country will allow you to explore the way that cultural, historical, political and institutional forces shape planning responses.

Career prospects

There are significant career opportunities in the field of planning, urban regeneration and environmental management working for local authorities, the private and voluntary sectors.

Within the planning sphere graduates can become involved in a variety of different positions concerned with helping to improve the quality of our towns and cities.
