Spatial planning is the management of space and development to create places that meet the needs of society, the economy and the environment.
The Spatial Planning degree from University College London (UCL) looks at how people, places and the environment interact and change, and the ways this might be influenced. The focus is on UK practices. They’re considered within a European and global context, and approached through critical analysis and evaluation.
The MSc Spatial Planning provides:
- an integrated programme, with all modules linked by common principles
- a programme dealing with real places and the role of planning in place-making
- a spatial perspective on planning systems and cultures
- lecture- and seminar-based modules, project work, site visits and the preparation of a 10,000 word dissertation
CareersGraduates have been very successful in gaining subsequent employment, including core public and private sector planning careers (such as local government and local, national and international consultancies), as well as the housing and transport sectors; planning, urban regeneration and environmental agencies; public and private utility companies; think tanks and public policy organisations; environmental campaign groups; and teaching and research.
The programme is fully accredited by both the RTPI and RICS. Students successfully completing the MSc in Spatial Planning are eligible for licentiate membership of either or both bodies, regardless of the subject focus of their undergraduate degree.
