The "European Urban Studies" (EUS) Master's programme addresses current challenges of cities in the context of a globalised world. The EUS programme pays special attention to questions of social cohesion, urban housing, cultural diversity, sustainable planning and mobility. The programme works with an understanding of urban studies that combines competences from the disciplines of urban planning, urban sociology, urban design, landscape and spatial planning. It provides a transdisciplinary and comprehensive approach for studying the development of cities in Europe and worldwide. 

The Master's programme is aiming at educating researchers in the field of urban studies. It will provide knowledge and academic skills to analyse, research and plan, particularly for students who want to start a professional career in urban planning, research and academic institutions and the wider field of civil society. The teaching programme intends to prepare for self-organised research projects and thereby for further studies (PhD) as well.

The interaction of the different subject areas outlined below allows for a differentiated examination of various issues:

  • European Cities
  • Urban and Landscape Planning
  • Urban Sociology
  • Research Methods and Research Design
