Content

The MSc in Urban Policy and Analysis equips students with a systematic grounding in the analysis of urban policy. The programme explores the role and impact of major policy actors within urban policy. You'll receive practical training in a number of frameworks, both analytical and methodological, and evaluate their usefulness in explaining urban policy processes and institutional structures related to environment and infrastructure. This course delves deep into the analysis of urban policy.

During the programme, you'll explore relevant intellectual and empirical tools for understanding urban policy and develop a practical knowledge of urban policy, including economic, infrastructure and environmental threats and benefits. The MSc in Urban Policy and Analysis also provides key employability skills in analytical and critical thinking, research management, data analysis, report writing and presentation. There are two specialisations available for degree participants. The first specialisation is sustainability, and the second is infrastructure. Explore the course content below.
