The Bartlett School of Planning hosts urban design programmes at undergraduate, masters and research masters levels, as well as a vital group of PhD researchers. Our programmes include:
- BSc Urban Planning, Design and Management
- MSc Urban Design & City Planning
- MRes Inter-disciplinary Urban Design
- MPhil/PhD Planning Studies
In these – and our other programmes through which urban design infuses – urban design is understood as the process of shaping better places for people than would otherwise be produced. In other words it is about how society defines places and interacts within physical spaces; it is about how this is constrained by social, political, economic and other forces, and it is about how we can positively shape this through ongoing processes of design and associated development and management.
