Cities are centres of society and are creative as well as conflictual places for divergent communities. We focus on how actors create, perform and experience the urban space and how they use it.
Cities are the vibrant and dynamic focal points of today's society. These diverse agglomerations of people, companies and organisations are both locations for innovation and for conflict. Cities are regarded as creative places as well as conflictual places for divergent communities. In this master specialisation you will study how different actors influence the physical form of cities but also the way in which they present and understand the character and identity of cities and how they make use of the typical urban environment in their daily activities. They create and make cities!

In this master specialisation, we focus especially on the different aspects of culture as a motor for urban development. We do so by engaging practically with cities at home and abroad through empirical research.

This qualifies you for jobs like city-manager, city marketeer, city planner, integration agent, city-network manager, etc.

The Master's in Urban and Cultural Geography is a specialisation of the Master's programme in Human Geography.
