About Transport Studies
Masters degrees in Transport Studies equip postgraduates to understand and assess the organisation and management strategies which operate modern transit systems and infrastructure.
Courses range from taught MA and MSc degrees, to research oriented MRes and MPhil programmes. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Transport Planning or Business Studies.
Masters in this area are highly diverse, allowing you to specialise in a range of transport systems. These include public transport, highway maintenance, air travel management, or maritime and freight logistics. Training will be provided in transport economics, such as financial management and cost-benefit analysis for different transportation systems.
You will also learn to understand the relationships between these transport networks and the communities or customers they serve – including the impact of new infrastructure. For example, you may explore the environmental impact and sustainability of local transport networks or international facilities, developing policy to meet community needs.
Careers may include senior management positions within local authorities and governing bodies, supply chain management, international purchasing and procurement, or overseeing the design of intelligent and accessible transport systems.
