What is an MA in Urban Design? Coursework will usually address topics such as urban design theory, sustainable development, the role of infrastructures in cities, relevant principles and practices, and urban development. Students typically have opportunities to participate in research or hands-on training. Some programs include a number of different teaching methods, such as project work, simulations, workshops and papers.

As a result of participation in this program, students will develop the techniques and knowledge they need to successful communicate urban design principles. They will have the skills necessary to analyze and apply design principles. Throughout the duration of the course, they may have the chance to visit sites and become familiar with fieldwork.

The cost of participation in an urban design program can be vastly different from one school to the next. Many school opportunities are available in a number of different countries, further accentuating the differences. For specific information about tuition and fees, contact the schools individually.

There are a number of different career opportunities available to graduates, both in the public sector and in private settings. Some graduates may choose to work in volunteer opportunities or pursue job positions in research or teaching.
