Course content

Cities are becoming crucibles of political action and contest around diverse aspects of social, environmental and spatial justice. Across the world we face multiple challenges of climate change, migration and citizenship that threaten our very social and ecological sustainability.

The MA in Global Urban Justice (GUJ) combines cutting-edge theoretical and methodological training with real-world experience of working with civil society organisations and campaign groups. It aims to meet a growing demand for interdisciplinary knowledge and expertise in the challenges of contemporary urbanisation and social justice.

If you’re interested in becoming part of a new generation of urban practitioners who are theoretically informed, methodologically proficient and empirically grounded, and who can work across disciplinary divides to create more just, sustainable and inclusive urban environments, this course is for you.
