Course content

Good quality housing is one of the most basic necessities in producing thriving communities and ensuring the health and wellbeing of individuals, so the job market around housing provides plenty of opportunities to graduates.

This professionally-orientated course will extend your professional knowledge and ability to perform at a senior level in the housing and housing-related professions.

The Masters element requires the submission of a 20,000 word dissertation in the third year. You'll be expected to attend a series of three research workshops (as well as individual supervision). The learning style is designed to provide tutor group support through discussion, as well as directed reading and regular progress meetings between students and supervisors.
