Overview

Why study European Spatial and Environmental Planning programme offered at the Radboud University

  • This programme looks beyond domestic policies and beyond spatial and environmental planning within one country, and acknowledges the significant role the EU nowadays plays in our policies and practices.
  • Our focus is on the influence of the EU and international policies and how to cooperate with planners in other countries. Students learn to understand how different sectors are interlinked in the field of spatial planning.
  • This is an interdisciplinary programme as it is jointly offered by the Master’s programmes in Spatial Planning and Environment and Society Studies. This also means you can choose with which MSc degree you would like to graduate (programme outlines are identical).

Career prospects

There is great demand for spatial and environmental planners with a thorough knowledge of the European and international policy context. Our graduates work in European institutions, national and regional public authorities, consultancies and NGOs dealing with spatial planning, regional policy and environmental policy. 

They work in positions as researchers, consultants, project managers and policy advisors. Because of the international orientation and the thorough academic foundation of the Master's programme, graduates are also well prepared to pursue a PhD degree in the Netherlands or another European country.
