Spatial Planning

Radboud University

Master Postgraduate Nijmegen

Course description

Qualification Master of Science
Field of study Humanities, social sciences, communication and arts
Course summary Our Master's in Spatial Planning offers 6 specialisations which are oriented towards Cities, Climate Change, Regional Mobility and Planning.
Course description Spatial planners are fascinated by on-going and future changes in cities and regions and take on the role as managers of those spatial transformations - think of: regenerating shopping districts or old industrial sites; designating water retention areas; shaping urban mobility concepts for the future. Related challenges vary in scale, from individual property to European policy making. The program sub-title 'managing smart cities and regions' reflects the challenges of current and coming urban societies, at a time that ambitions for a 'New Urban Agenda' for the 21st century are formulated, with policies and strategies to create more sustainable and equitable urban spaces. Why study Spatial Planning at Radboud University? You are interested to develop a different understanding of planning and forms of practices. Required smart and sustainable solutions for current planning problems are generated in multi-actor settings responding to and working with different stakeholders. You want to create socially, environmentally, economically just places. We're a small, almost 'family-like' department that covers a broad range of topics with a strong track record in related research.
