MSc Urban Studies at University College London

For further details visit the course website:

This unique course is a collaboration between four UCL faculties (the
Bartlett; Arts and Humanities; Engineering; and Social and Historical
Sciences).  Students take two core modules in "Urban imaginations" and
"City, space and power" and then choose further courses from over twenty
optional modules ranging from research training (for the dissertation) to
specialist modules such as "Creative cities", "Spatial planning", "Urban
design", "Asian cities in a globalizing South", "Italian cinema and the
city", and "Post-colonial theory and the multicultural city." This advanced
interdisciplinary programme is aimed at two main groups of students:  first,
students from a professional background who wish to take an opportunity for
critical reflection and skills enhancement for their career development; and
second, students who wish to consider embarking on a research career in the
urban field and see the MSc as a useful first step towards independent
writing and research at PhD or postdoctoral level. Entry requirements are
the equivalent of a first or upper-second class degree. Full time, part time
and flexible study options are available.

The course is run by the UCL Urban Laboratory:
