Course content

PLANET Europe is a joint Master’s programme of Radboud University Nijmegen, Blekinge Institute of Technology and Cardiff University. Designed to help students understand the influences of the European Union and international developments on space, the environment and the economy and who would like to address large-scale spatial challenges such as climate change.

The MSc European Spatial Planning & Environmental Policy prepares you for a career in environmental and spatial planning in Europe. It is designed to give you a better understanding of the influences of the European Union and international developments on space, the environment and the economy. You will develop skills to address large-scale spatial challenges such as climate change or transnational river management.

If you are interested in becoming a ‘European Spatial Planner’ who can effectively engage with the international policy context and in cross-cultural communication, this is the course for you. You will explore EU policy and legislation for spatial planning, environmental policy and regional economic development in European countries and regions.

The course will provide you with sound methodological skills, in particular for undertaking international comparative research, and independently conducted research on a topic in the field of European spatial planning, EU environmental policy and/or regional economic development.

Interactive teaching and learning on this course will challenge and stimulate you. You will work in small groups on contemporary themes and learn to think critically about new developments.
