The Master's track History of Architecture and Town Planning from University of Groningen explores the evolution of cities, villages and park- and landscape design in Europe within the changing global setting.


This History of Architecture and Town Planning master track at University of Groningen provides students a rich and varied introduction in the history and theory of architecture and urban planning. 

Since healthcare architecture requires a thorough understanding of the history and theory of architecture, and the world of healthy cities can only be analysed against the background of urbanism, the Expertise Centre Architecture, Urbanism and Health is embedded in a classical approach of architectural and urban history and theory. It allows students to specialize in classical history and theory, the health impacts of architecture and urbanism, or a mixture.

Job prospects

The master's track opens a myriad of career opportunities, in the Netherlands and abroad, as has been proved over the years. For instance:

  • jobs in the field of urban history and consultancy for municipal agencies and scientific institutions
  • jobs for private or public architectural and urban platforms
  • jobs in the field of journalism and public relations
