Urban Geography (Human Geography)


The Master's in Urban Geography provides students with a deeper understanding of global and local processes that shape cities across the world. We study processes of urbanisation, urban inequality and every day urban life through a geographical lens, exploring how seemingly global phenomena take on place-specific forms and contribute to place-specific social and spatial challenges. You will thus learn to study cities not only from the perspective of the global, but also from the perspective of the local.
