Course content

The masters degree in Regeneration and Sustainable Communities is a unique course designed for regeneration practitioners working in a wide range of contexts for developing sustainable communities. These include paid employees and community volunteers. Work and the workplace are broadly defined here to include voluntary and unpaid activity.

During the course you will develop intellectual tools and techniques to help you inquire into your professional practice within the wider context of your organisation and regeneration. It will also enhance your understanding of the inter-disciplinary knowledge and practices in regeneration that are relevant to your work role.

You will develop your capability to use technology effectively and critically evaluate its use in your work. You will also learn to plan, implement and evaluate change strategies for your workplace and develop high-level communication and persuasion skills that will be used to present and support these changes.

You will examine the history, current practices and possible future developments in the field of regeneration and sustainable communities; and learn to apply research and rigour in approaching problems and opportunities in your workplace. You will become a reflective practitioner, able to develop your practice based on evidence and analysis.
