About the course

This Sustainable Cities MSc is an interdisciplinary programme that will develop your critical understanding of how cities are shaped by human and physical processes, so you can look behind the headlines. Our teaching extends beyond just the technical aspects of sustainable urban development to concentrate on people over infrastructure. We'll cover the science, social and economic theories of sustainable cities, with a focus on human geography, not engineering. This Sustainable Cities Masters links to the Urban Futures research group, focusing on ongoing research about the way that urban knowledge might produce more socially and environmentally sustainable cities. You'll be able to follow your own interests in social or environmental sustainability by choosing from a range of optional interdisciplinary modules across the Geography Department and beyond. And if you opt to join our environmental internship programme*, you'll get the chance to supplement your academic prowess with real-life urban policy experience. You'll take an international view of cities while being taught in London, which acts as the perfect laboratory for the world. You'll build your awareness of the historical context and global contemporary ideas and practices relating to sustainable cities, while also studying how London's distinctive post-colonial geographies require particular policy adaptations. You'll get to examine the key challenges of implementing policies that promote sustainable urbanism, and 'learn by doing'. You'll join Sustainable Cities MSc graduates who have gone on to work in sustainability consultancy organisations, local authorities around the world, NGOs focused on urban issues, and private-sector urban development companies.
