The MSc includes core courses in theory, practice and methods, a range of specialist options and the Research Dissertation.
The total credit value of the MSc is 180 credits, 60 of which are taken up by the Research Dissertation and 45 by the three core modules: Urban Imaginations, Cities Space and Power and Urban Practices. The remaining 75 credits are made up by the optional modules you choose.
The research dissertation is a substantial piece of independent research. The dissertation must comprise an argument drawn from the appropriate theoretical literature; a methodological design appropriate to the topic and achievable within the four month period; presentation of results and analysis of findings. The dissertation is the final element of the MSc, and through the successful design, implementation and completion of the project, each student is required to demonstrate their understanding of the MSc themes, critical thinking and analysis, communication and presentation.
