About

The Regional and Urban Planning Studies programme from London School of Economics and Political Science is a unique planning programme as it is based on the economics, geography and the politics of land-use planning, drawing on LSE’s strength in interdisciplinary teaching.

Overview

The Regional and Urban Planning Studies programme from London School of Economics and Political Science has a long tradition in training both people seeking careers in urban and regional planning policy and mid-career professionals. It attracts students from all over the world including North and South America, Asia and Europe.

The MSc aims to provide a common understanding of the various influences affecting the planning process, and to teach a set of research skills that will help planners in practice. These skills include urban and regional economic analysis, the evaluation of environmental and regional policies and the study of institutional and political factors that impact city and regional development.

We provide strong professional linkages through our very active alumni network and links to the Association of European Planning Schools. This programme benefits from a partnership agreement with the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), thus conferring professional recognition upon graduation.
