We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Urban Planning equip postgraduates with advanced knowledge and training in the processes of developing and maintaining the infrastructure of urban towns and cities.
Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant field, such as Architecture, Geography, or Planning.
Masters study in this field is often multidisciplinary, drawing on concepts from subjects such as social science, engineering, and architecture.
Typically, you will scrutinise the role of urban planning in modern society, exploring solutions to problems such as over-crowding and spatial planning. You will develop tools and techniques to present, model, and prototype your ideas using digital software and technological developments. Co-production and co-design of innovative planning models is also studied, in relation to local, regional, and national planning policy.
Careers may include roles in real estate development, strategic planning roles for governing bodies, private consultancy, landscape architecture, and service design. You may even opt to work for large organisations such as international agencies and charitable organisations.
If you’d prefer to undertake a career in academia, a Masters in in Urban Planning is also excellent preparation for a PhD.
