Urban Ecological Planning / Urban Development and Resilience
This Master's degree programme addresses the two core challenges facing fast-growing towns and cities: making development sustainable, and creating resilient societies that withstand the threats from climate change and disaster.
The programme provides a strong link to practice and seeks to challenge urban practitioners from all backgrounds, with an underpinning ethos that the best approaches begin with people themselves.
Note: the programme’s name is currently changing, wherein (subject to final ratification) the programme will be known from 2015 as Urban Development and Resilience. The name change reflects the addition of new courses which build on the programme’s core values and approaches.
Past students are currently successfully placed in various profiles across the globe. Many go on to become development professionals both in NGOs and government service, while others pursue careers in academia and the private sector.
