Urban and Regional Development

The course links theoretical debates about the nature of social, economic and physical regeneration with the more practical skills and knowledge required for policy formulation and implementation. The programme is run by the School of Planning and Geography but students are able to access related teaching offered by the School of Social Sciences. This cross-fertilisation builds a teaching dimension to the close collaborative research relationship between the schools giving students access to a wider range of regeneration-related expertise.
