Course content

With an increasing majority of the world's population living in cities, urbanisation is one of the most important social processes today. This programme explores the nature of cities, with all their conflicts, complexity and diversity. With options ranging from an applied, hands-on internship to more theoretical module units on 'the city', students can construct their own framework for understanding cities, the processes of urbanisation and their impact on the environment. A major element of the degree is its focus on the policy implications of contemporary urbanisation.
