MA in Creative Cities...Rethinking Urban and Regional Development

The School of Geography at the University of Southampton offers several half-fee scholarships (representing half of EU/"Home" fees) for its MA in Creative Cities...Rethinking Urban and Regional Development.

This challenging and dynamic programme provides students with a basis for exploring key elements of twenty-first century urban and regional change, including creativity, cultural planning, globalisation and innovation. The MA in Creative Cities offers cutting-edge engagement with key debates in contemporary urban and regional research. Drawing upon the School of Geography's internationally recognised strengths, the degree programme explores the interconnections between geographies of economic restructuring, cultural practices and the production of space.

The MA in Creative Cities is designed for those who intend to pursue a future career in urban and regional development, private sector property and retail development, or those who wish to undertake further research in urban economic and cultural geography. Recent graduates are now employed in research and consultancy roles in both the private and public sectors.

In light of the multi-disciplinary approach of the MA, a first degree in Geography is not required, applications from related discipline such as economics, sociology, anthropology, urban planning and architecture are welcome.

The deadline for application is 1 May 2008. Applications can be made online via the University of Southampton website at: www.soton.ac.uk/postgraduate/pgstudy/howdoiapplypg.html. An MA brochure is available at www.geog.soton.ac.uk/tprog/macc/Documents/MA_Creative_Cities.pdf.
