Master of European Urban Studies (EU)
European Urban Studies respond to the dynamic transformation processes which affect urban spaces at the beginning of the 21st century. Urban landscapes of dispersed character, global markets, virtual spaces, powerful actors in the construction business and postmodern lifestyles generate new challenges for the spatial competence of planners and spatially oriented designers.During the first and third semester, in-depth scientific and basic applied knowledge in the thematic context of "European Urban Studies" is conveyed. The study project in the first or third semester deals with a particular urban and/or spatially oriented issue. This issue is tackled using scientific and/or design-oriented methods in an interdisciplinary, yet applied manner close to reality. Hereby, applying the content and methodic core competence of all or as many as possible of the fields of European Urban Studies will be relevant. Courses and examinations are held in English.During the second semester, which is oriented towards professional practice, international partners in Germany, Europe and overseas offer collaboration on "International Model Projects". These internships (three to six months) are conducted with chosen project partners such as scientific institutions, communal authorities, real estate developers/investors, construction managers, architects and planning offices. The presentation and discussion of the results drawn from the research work and practical experience occurs in the third semester, following the internship during the annual Model Project Forum.In the fourth semester, students are expected to draw up their Master Thesis. This phase of writing and research is accompanied by a colloquium in regular intervals. The master study course is completed with a scientific or project-oriented Master Thesis and an oral master examination. Successful students will be awarded the title of "Master of Science" (M.Sc.).... [-]
