Specialisation in Urban and Cultural Geography

The Master's specialisation in Urban and Cultural Geography focuses on how the city is represented and how city images emerge and are contested. You study the hybrid nature and daily struggles of urban life, as well as the cultural diversity and political economy of the city.
