The Urban Design MA at Liverpool John Moores University programme is nourished by Liverpool School of Art and Design’s burgeoning research in Urbanism and close association with the University's European Institute for Urban Affairs.
The curriculum has creative place-making at its core and we welcome applicants from a variety of educational and professional backgrounds such as architecture, planning, landscape architecture, art and spatial design.
As a graduate of this programme, a number of career paths will be open to you. Most aligned with your formal education is the practice of urban design work in specialist agencies or public sector bodies. These roles consider how structures and systems function within existing landscapes and how they can be manipulated to offer the best living and working solutions.
Many graduates have successfully secured employment at world-class practices throughout the UK and further afield, while others have remained in Liverpool contributing to its evolution by taking key roles in leading practices that have reshaped the city over the last decade.
For those interested in taking their learning to the next level, this programme also offers the opportunity to progress to PhD study and embark on a career teaching Urban Design.
