Course summary

What is Urban Planning and Design MSc?

This course caters for those seeking to accept the challenges of managing rapid urban growth, while addressing the fundamental requirements of sustainability and of ethical and professional responsibilities.

The course promotes an integrated understanding of processes of spatial change in the built and natural environments and of the ways in which and reasons why societies manage and regulate those changes. The course aims to promote critical thinking about ‘space’ and ‘place’ as the basis for action or intervention in order to secure an agreed range of social, economic and environmental objectives.

Although the programme design doesn’t explicitly assume any specific prior learning, it would be particularly suited to those who have previously studied surveying, architecture, landscape architecture, civil engineering or urban studies. Or for graduates from cognate social or environmental science disciplines, such as geography, economics or environmental studies.

Possible careers

This course will provide you with specialist expertise in urban planning and design, allowing you to study this discipline within the broader context of town planning and property development.

Graduates from this course can go on to work in: urban and rural planning; city regeneration; urban design; planning and property development employer; landscape/architectural practices dealing with master planning; infrastructure; transport development; government organisations; local authorities; research institutions as employers.
