Course summary

COURSE OVERVIEW

The MSc by Research in Urban Studies allows you to undertake a year-long (full time) or two-year-long (part-time) individual programme of personally and professionally enriching research, supervised by our Human Geography academic staff.

Your urban studies research project will be shaped by participation in research activities such as seminars and reading groups, as well as your involvement in one of our established Human Geography research groups.

While this research programme usually finishes after a year (or two years for part-time students), it can be used to progress to the second year (full-time equivalent) of a PhD degree in Human Geography in the appropriate circumstances.

The range of our current human geographical research in urban studies includes:

  • Global cities
  • World cities
  • Global urban networks
  • Poststructuralism, actor-network theory, assemblage theory and the city
  • Psychoanalytic urban geographies
  • The political economy and cultural political economy of cities
  • Urban geographies of violence
  • Modernity, Postmodernity and the city
  • Alternative Urban theories

In the latest Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014) assessment of research in the UK, 95% of Geography research at Swansea was judged to be of international quality, and 60% was rated as world-leading or internationally excellent.
