About

The MSS in Nordic Urban Planning Studies from Malmö University studies Nordic urban planning in a global context and its distinctive perspectives to urban sustainability, liveability, mobility, ‘smart’ cities, welfare, citizen empowerment and more

Overview

The MSS in Nordic Urban Planning Studies from Malmö University is a flexible, two-year programme that combines core training across the three universities with opportunities to specialise at each. Recognising that sustainable solutions for major future challenges cannot be solved with one professionalism alone, the programme takes an interdisciplinary approach that equips you to solve real-life complex problems through group and individual research projects.

Distinctive features of the programme include:

  • drawing on the distinctive research and teaching strengths of the three universities, while allowing immersion in a wide range of cities and planning cases;
  • developing skills in working collaboratively and imaginatively with other students as well as with diverse communities, organisations, companies and municipalities;
  • offering flexibility by combining core training with opportunities to specialise, including in terms of where to research your thesis;
  • providing training in appropriate theories and qualitative methods as well as techniques of spatial visualisation and geographical information systems, including through a field course on Arctic cities and their planning; and
  • emphasising creative and experimental methods as well as problem-oriented project work for addressing planning issues.
