A master’s degree can be obtained after an individual has completed a bachelor’s degree in his or her field of choice. Earning a master’s degree is an excellent way to deepen industry knowledge and potentially impress future employers.

What is a Master in Urban Design? This field centers on designing the physical features of towns and cities. Although it is related to architecture, it differs in that it works on a larger scale, focusing on a city’s design as a whole rather than on each individual building. Urban design programs vary from university to university, but in general, students can expect to take courses on a variety of subjects including landscape architecture, engineering and urban planning. Additionally, courses that emphasize economics and social theory are usually part of the program as well.

A Master in Urban Design carries with it many benefits. This degree is potentially attractive to employers, because graduates tend to have design expertise that can be applied to a wide range of careers. Additionally, students can expect success in personal and professional pursuits due to improved time management and problem-solving skills.

The price of obtaining a master's degree varies on a case by case basis. In general, programs take anywhere from one to two years to finish, and the program length can affect the associated fees.

Programs for achieving a Master in Urban Design cover a wide range of topics, so career opportunities are usually diverse and ample. Many graduates of urban design programs become designers, creating city landscapes and checking plans to ensure optimal efficiency. Another career possibility is being a sustainability consultant. This job involves carrying out research and analyzing data to measure a city’s carbon footprint and presenting these findings to clients. Graduates can also pursue careers as city planners, urban landscapers or architectural assistants.

A Master in Urban Design can be obtained locally, online or internationally. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
