About

The Urban Studies programme of Estonian Academy of Arts critically engages with manifold aspects to the contemporary urban question, integrating insights from urban studies, urbanism and urban planning, architectural history, urban sociology and ethnography and critical geography. 

Overview

The Urban Studies programme of Estonian Academy of Arts familiarizes students with historical dynamics and conflicts shaping our world today.

Integrating design and experimental approaches with a conceptually robust and research-driven critical agenda, it prepares students for understanding, questioning and intervening into urban spaces and institutions. The education prepares students to engage with urban issues at the intersection between critical urban research, artistic and design practice and political practice and interventions (conceptually innovative approaches to the urban, urban design and planning, state and municipal policy making, public expertise, community advocacy, social and artistic activism). Urban Studies graduates work in public administrations, urbanism-focused NGOs, architecture offices, private consultancies and advocacy organizations. The program prepares graduates for postgraduate studies.

The program has active international orientation in terms of its thematic foci and external faculty.
