Amsterdam University of the Arts

Master Postgraduate Amsterdam

Course description

Qualification Master of Science
Field of study Humanities, social sciences, communication and arts
Course summary The Master in Urbanism focuses on getting acquainted with the wide range of design tasks, on developing your attitude and resources, and on learning to take a stand in the professional debate.
Course description Cities are an inexhaustible source of inspiration and fascination, made by human hands. During the Master in Urbanism at the Amsterdam Academy of Architecture, you will learn to understand the city in all its complexity and often improbable scale, to make smart strategic development proposals for its future and to make both functional and attractive design proposals for actual places in the city. As urban planner, you can translate the desires of citizens, entrepreneurs and administrators, and the abstract analyses, theories and stories of sociologists, economists, town and country planners, traffic engineers and similar disciplines into concrete and meaningful spatial design proposals; for the street, neighbourhood, district, city and urban region. Furthermore, you will be supplied with all the tools at the Academy to develop into a central and connecting person in the building of the city and to become a versatile and authentic professional.
