Despite the demand for European or transnational coordination in spatial planning, national planning cultures and concepts within Europe continue to be markedly heterogeneous. You will be prepared for understanding a wide range of European and transnational planning philosophies and processes, as well as transcending current limits.
The Master In Geography and Spatial Planning from the University of Luxembourg addresses key social, economic and environmental challenges with a geographical and multi-scalar perspective. Sustainable planning strategies require a holistic approach and push researchers and experts to enlarge the scope of their competences and move beyond singular disciplinary culture.
You will gain an understanding of integrative approaches and be trained in a wide range of approaches in geographical analysis and spatial planning. You will be prepared to meet the demands for sustainable spatial planning strategies and improved urban and territorial governance processes.
The Master leads to a variety of professional careers at different geographical scales and in various sectors, as well as an opening to PhD programmes.
Most of our graduates work in private and public spatial planning bodies, mobility and transport consultancies, urban and regional development agencies, European and cross-border institutions, as well as in universities and research centres.
