Bachelor's degree, consisting of 180 credits. The equivalent of English 6 in Swedish secondary school.
The aim of the programme is for students to deepen their knowledge of urban studies, preparing them to participate in research or qualified urban development investigations.
In the first year, students will acquire an overview of the field of urban studies and its development. Students will then deepen their knowledge about current urban challenges in a global perspective as well as the growth of different urban conditions and forms. After this, students will hone their ability to critically examine and describe encounters between people's everyday lives and the physical forms of the city. At the end of the first year, an independent project is conducted.
During the second year students take elective courses amounting to 30 credits. To complete this part of the programme, students can choose to do exchange studies at one of Malmö University's partner universities or take elective courses at the Department of Urban Studies at Malmo University. The second year concludes with a master's thesis (30 credits).
Semester 3: Students may choose to take courses at Malmö University or at another university in Sweden or abroad (i.e. exchange studies). The Department of Urban studies will offer a few elective courses. These will be made available during semester 2 in time for application. There will be a possibility for research internship.
