And after my bachelor study?
As a study course with practical project-oriented and research-oriented components, the Bachelor of Science in Urban Planning degree course qualifies graduates to work in municipal and federal government authorities and other research institutions as experts for the spatial dimension of planning and development.
Public town planning has been instrumental in creating the conditions for an enormous increase in the standard and quality of life in many countries, especially in the second half of the 20th century, and today places new demands on the analysis and planning of spatial transformations. As a consequence the field of work both in professional practice as well as in research are changing continually.
Graduates of the Urban Planning course often go on to work as town planners in public administration, for example with municipal, regional or national planning authorities. They also work in private planning offices, in private companies, social organisations and policy consultancy agencies. A further field of work is in research, either in conjunction with an academic teaching position or in one of the many research institutes. International organisations are also increasingly seeking professional graduates with a background in Urban Studies.
