As the world continues to urbanize and globalize, cities are becoming the predominant form of human settlement that is simultaneously locally unique and globally networked. The cities define the scale at which most of the pressing societal issues are engaged.

Urban studies, in which the city is both object and context, are an interdisciplinary field but it is glocalization – the ways in which dynamic global forces interact with local conditions – that is a key part of the program’s multiscalar perspective. It is seen as essential for new approaches in important fields of urban policy such as planning approach to culture, adaptation and mitigation of climate change and the economy.

URBS were developed to provide an immersive, experiential urban studies program that overcomes geographic and disciplinary boundaries to embrace the diversity of forces that are shaping the 21st-century city.

The four-semester program is profiled in such a way that it puts the latest digital technologies in the foreground with the use of advanced databases, at the same time drawing on the tradition and rich experience of the Polish School of Urban Planning, created at Warsaw University of Technology a hundred years ago. Innovative learning methods will be used, including those based on the Project-Based Learning method, Design Thinking, using digital platforms and programs enabling distance learning and interdisciplinary cooperation.
