URBAN STUDIES MA

The urban question permeates all major social, economic, and political
developments of today. With increasing complexity on the urban field,
we face new demand for knowledge about cities and urban change.

The mission of the MA programme in Urban Studies is to grasp the
complexity of this situation and to elaborate adequate response at the
level of design, policy, and research. The interdisciplinary programme
focuses on new analytic methods and design solutions that critically
engage with the wide-ranging manifestation of contemporary urbanity.

Estonia, an established member state of the EU, provides a fruitful
context for a forward-looking education in Urban Studies because of
its agile society, advanced technological base, social mobility, and
rapid urban change.

The focus of Urban Studies is on processes, forms, and uses that shape
cities and urban regions. The MA programme is trans-disciplinary,
integrating bodies of knowledge of architecture, planning studies, art
history, sociology, geography, anthropology, political science, and
economics.

The distinctive mark of the MA in Urban Studies is its reliance on
theoretically informed action in the field. An important part of the
studies consists of semi-realistic design studio projects that engage
real actors. In pursuing a creative agenda, the artistic context of
the Estonian Academy of Arts is a specific strength of the programme.

Apply by August 15, 2013.
