Program Information

Degree Offered:

M.Sc - Spatial Planning

Format: Campus

Program Description:

Spatial planners are fascinated by on-going and future changes in cities and regions and take on the role as managers of those spatial transformations - think of: regenerating shopping districts or old industrial sites; designating water retention areas; shaping urban mobility concepts for the future. Related challenges vary in scale, from individual property to European policy making. The programme's subtitle ‘managing smart cities and regions’ reflects the challenges of current and future urban societies, at a time that ambitions for a ‘New Urban Agenda’ for the 21st century are formulated, with policies and strategies to create more sustainable and equitable urban spaces.


You can choose a specialisation that best reflects your passion for spatial planning. Radboud University offers the following specialisations in this field, plus the option of constructing your own specialisation: Cities, Water and Climate Change, European Spatial and Environmental Planning, Planning, Land and Real Estate Development, Urban and Regional Mobility, Vision and Strategy Building for Cities and Regions.

Our Spatial Planning graduates are greatly valued by their employers for their analytical skills, critical perspective and sound academic understanding of the relationship between human activities, their spatial environment, and relevant spatial interventions enhancing their living environment.
