    Professionals trained to intervene in emerging projects in cities and territories

    Who is the programme designed for?

    In a rapidly global urbanisation process, the demand for professionals with specific training in Urban Studies and/or City Sciences is becoming more and more explicit. This is a great attraction for students seeking to specialise, as well as for professionals seeking to update their knowledge from an innovative and multidisciplinary approach.

    These are transversal, emerging and necessary programmes, oriented towards the management of cities from the institutions as well as from the different sectors that make up urban societies.

    They address issues that cover contents and competences from very diverse and topical fields of study, e.g. housing, mobility, citizen safety, city diplomacy, governance and participation, social innovation, creative cities, application of ICTs in the city, etc.

    This Master’s degree aims to meet the demand for professionals with a transversal, integrating profile, and a global vision of the city and territory. Professionals who facilitate collaborative governance within the entity itself and in relation to the rest of the sectors and actors (institutions, companies, associations and citizens). Professionals trained to intervene in emerging projects in cities and territories.

    The Master’s degree allows access to doctoral programmes and to the preparation of a doctoral thesis in this area of knowledge.

    Prospective students of the Master's degree come from different areas of knowledge, such as: Sociology, Architecture, Engineering, Ecology, Environmental Sciences, Political Sciences, Law, Communication, Business Administration and Management, Philology, Education, Economics, Geography, Entrepreneurship and Innovation, International Relations, History, Philosophy and Health Sciences.
