Course Description

This aim of this course is to provide students with the essential knowledge and skills required to effectively intervene in the urban design process.

At the same time, there is growing recognition of the challenges facing regional locations, in particular how relationships between urban and rural territories need to become more effectively managed through adequate infrastructure and a clearer vision of measured and sustainable growth that will benefit future generations. Environmental, social and economic changes are imposing significant pressures on the sustainability of urban settlements, with consequential and long-term impacts on the quality of life. Features include:

• The location of the University within the Yorkshire region gives students an opportunity to engage directly with a changing local and regional context, particularly in the areas of post-industrial transformations, creatively led regeneration processes and urban-rural developments.
