We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Urban Geography offer advanced study of the relationship between people and the environment within towns and cities.
Related subjects include Economic Geography and Environmental Geography. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Human Geography.
Courses in this area of Human Geography encourage you to investigate how different actors influence the physical form of cities and create the typical urban environment. From people to companies, organisations to institutions, training typically explores innovation and conflict within cities and regions.
Depending on where your interests lie will likely the shape the studies which you undertake. For example, you might wish to examine political institutions within different cities of a region, comparing policies, planning and strategy.
On the other hand, you might explore the economy of a city, or the development and marketing of multiple cities. You could even examine multi-culturalism and integration, innovative and creative urban milieus, urban identities, and cultural industries.
Careers may include roles in public relations, consultancy on behalf of regulatory bodies, or policy and legislation within local government.
