European Spatial and Environmental Planning
The Master's specialisation 'European spatial and environmental planning' prepares for a career in the area of strategic spatial planning and European spatial planning and territorial cooperation.
The spatial impacts of European Union policy are visible wherever we look. Transnational transport connections, such as the Öresund bridge, or nature protection through the Natura2000 network, are examples of the influence of EU policy on land use patterns in our regions. The freedoms of the Single European Market give EU citizens the right to work and to buy a house in another country, and companies the opportunity to settle anywhere in the EU. The globalisation of the economy and increasing interlinkages between regions have led to a growth in transport volumes across the EU, as exemplified by recent expansions of many European airports. Many of these EU developments have considerable spatial and environmental implications.
This international and European dimension to spatial and environmental planning in the nations and regions of the EU is the focus of our full-time international Master specialisation on 'European spatial and environmental planning' (ESEP).
The Master's in European spatial and environmental planning is a specialistion of the Master's programme in Human Geography.
