Course content

This Master's degree teaches you why people embrace or reject spatial changes. You will be trained as a technician who seeks optimal quality of life in association with the people involved.

During the Master's programme in Socio-Spatial Planning, you will study spatial issues. You will not only focus on planning urban areas, the environment and traffic, but also on the social aspects of change.

You will study the role of various parties involved in the environment, such as the government and civilians. You will learn to analyse spatial issues, formulate strategies and evaluate the consequences. You will also learn to make policy and supervise projects.

Apart from the compulsory subjects, you can choose some elective courses. You will finish your programme by writing a thesis.

Job perspectives

Socio-spatial planners often work for the government. They design environmental policy. Consultancies, housing associations and developers also hire planners. You may also pursue a scientific career at a university.
