Are you interested in a career in which you can address spatial and environmental challenges such as climate change or transnational river management which require cooperation between different regions? The joint Master's programme in PLANET Europe can help you achieve this with its focus on the European dimension of spatial planning, spatial and environmental policy and regional economic development.

The influence of EU policies and actions on spatial and environmental planning in the EU member states is ever increasing. European regions are more and more interlinked, and cooperation across national borders is now a routine aspect of the work of spatial planners. This European dimension of planning requires a new generation of graduates, who can respond to, as well as influence, EU and international policy, who are sensitive to cultural and institutional differences, and who are capable of cooperating with colleagues in other European countries.

In the first year of your PLANET Europe studies, you'll get a theoretical grounding in multi-level governance, institutional perspectives and comparative analysis at two of the partner universities. In the second year, you'll combine your academic studies with professional experience, and conclude your studies with independent Master's thesis research.

The PLANET Europe Master's programme prepares you for a career as spatial and environmental planner within research, consultancy and policy making. Our graduates could work at universities or for EU institutions, national and regional public authorities, private companies and NGOs dealing with spatial planning, regional policy and environmental planning.
