Uses and perceptions of the city
Cities are bubbling, dynamic places where people get together and generate new ideas. They are breeding grounds for innovation and creativity, but also places where tensions between different communities, with differing lifestyles, can arise and where social inequalities are revealed.
The Urban Geography Master’s programme studies the city’s uses and perceptions from various perspectives, with a focus on analysing and explaining how people use and see cities.
A unique aspect of this Master’s programme is its international character, which is partly attributable to the participation of foreign students. The programme includes a trip to a foreign city, and you can also do your thesis research and/or internship abroad.
‘Urban Daily Life’ and ‘Living in the City’
In this Master’s programme you can choose between two specialisations: ‘Urban Daily Life: Cultures, Consumption and Mobilities’ or ‘Living in the City: Migration, Mobility and Neighbourhoods’.
