Cities and settlements are under extreme pressure. Social and environmental inequity is sharply on the rise. Urbanism, spatial planning and intervention in landscape systems are in urgent need of renewed approaches. New strategies must be developed to not only tackle social exclusion, unequal distribution of resources and spatial contradictions, but also be inspired by the multiple and (trans)cultural expressions of worldwide urbanisms. The Master of Urbanism and Strategic Planning focuses on multi-faceted and -scalar issues of contemporary urban development.
University of Groningen
This Master’s provides students a rich and varied introduction in the history and theory of architecture and urban planning. Since the world of healthy cities can only be analysed against the background of urbanism, the Expertise Centre Architecture, Urbanism and Health is embedded in a classical approach of architectural and urban history and theory.
Cities are the place for concrete solutions for problems from all fields of everyday life and the place for sustaining democracy. The EUS programme therefore pays special attention to questions of social cohesion, urban housing, cultural diversity, sustainable planning and mobility.
