Urbanism as an academic field focuses on the study and planning of cities and urban environments. This interdisciplinary field encompasses various aspects of urban life, including urban design, urban development, city planning, transportation systems, sustainability, and social dynamics within cities. Urbanists analyse and propose solutions to the complex challenges faced by modern cities, striving to create livable, equitable, and sustainable urban spaces.

Urbanism plays a crucial role in addressing urbanisation challenges, such as population growth, affordable housing, transportation congestion, and environmental sustainability. As cities continue to expand and evolve, the demand for skilled urbanists will remain significant, making it a rewarding and impactful career path for those passionate about shaping the future of cities and improving urban living conditions.

Graduates of a master's degree in Urbanism will have advanced career options available to them. These may include roles as urban strategist, urban development consultant, urban economist, policy analyst, and city management executive.

Your master's degree program will consist of lectures, seminars, and workshops that encourage critical thinking and advanced research. Depending on your chosen specialisation, you may study modules like:

  • Urban Regeneration
