Urban and Economic Geography

Utrecht University

Master Postgraduate Utrecht

Course description

Qualification Master of Science
Field of study Humanities, social sciences, communication and arts
Course summary In this master students are trained to analyze increasing urbanization, growing environmental threats and uneven economic globalization.
Course description Cities and regions throughout the world face challenges that require integrated knowledge of urban geography, economic geography, international development studies, and planning. In this Research Master's programme in Urban and Economic Geography (previously known as Human Geography and Planning), students will gain a broad theoretical and methodological background that will allow them to become an academic or professional researcher of ongoing social, spatial, and economic developments in cities and regions. Students can specialize in their preferred geographic sub-discipline while maintaining a broader perspective on the functioning of cities and regions, as well as the relevant theories and methods.
Study subjects The first year comprises eight courses. The second year of the programme consists of a study period abroad, a Master's thesis research project, a scientific paper, and a course focusing on the orientation of an academic or professional career and reflections on personal development. The programme offers considerable scope to design one's own personal Master's plan, matching specific interests and competences.
Course objectives In Urban and Economic Geography, students will study the reasons behind the diverse developments in the globalized and urbanized world, and will learn to translate up-to-date theoretical and methodological developments into empirical research. Students will also formulate effective policy recommendations to make cities and regions more viable and sustainable.
