Program Description

Master in Urban Studies (4CITIES)

Vrije Universiteit Brussel

PROGRAMME DESCRIPTION

The Master in Urban Studies (4CITIES) is a unique two-year interdisciplinary and international programme. 4CITIES takes students to Brussels, Copenhagen, Vienna, Madrid and a number of surrounding cities. The programme adds a European perspective to the field of Urban Studies: it wants to break up and to open the national perspective on urban problems. The growing importance of globalisation and the shift towards a world of flows calls for a new approach in important fields of urban policy like culture, economy, planning…

The strength of the programme results from the integration of analytical skills typical for the (social-) sciences and the more design-oriented skills of planning and architecture. The need for interdisciplinary knowledge and skills, as opposed to the more narrowly defined academic disciplines, is strong.
