The Master’s programme in PLANET Europe is for students that are 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 PLANET Europe Master’s programme prepares you for a career as spatial and environmental planner within research, consultancy and policy making. Students will not only be taught at Radboud University, but also at the Blekinge Institute of Technology or at Cardiff University, depending on their choice of specialisation (Spatial Planning or European Spatial Planning and Environmental Policy).
Prospective students need to choose their specialisation track:
•European Spatial Planning and Sustainable Development (RU/CU- track)
•European Spatial Planning and Regional Economic Development (RU/BTH-track)
All students start with an introduction on the European dimension of spatial planning and the spatial impacts of EU policies in semester 1 at RU in Nijmegen. In semester 2 students either continue at CU in Cardiff and focus on sustainable development in policy and practice, or they continue at BTH in Karlskrona with a semester on innovation and cohesion in the EU.
In semester 3, students apply their knowledge to planning practice and receive further training on cross-national communication and presentation skills. Students complete their studies with an individual Master thesis on a topic of their choice under joint supervision.
