The Master Program
- © TU Berlin, Master Environmental Planning
The Master of Environmental
Planning is two-year program awarding a 'Master of Science'
(MSc) for students with a strong background in
Landscape Planning, Urban and Regional Planning, Spatial Planning,
Geography, Geo Sciences, Ecology, Environmental Sciences, Politics,
Regional Sciences, or related disciplines. The program is designed to
deepen and expand the knowledge and skills learned during one’s
undergraduate studies and thus requires some basic knowledge in the
main fields covered in the master's program.
The program provides a thorough education in landscape planning and environmental assessment, economics of environmental protection and conservation, and the application of geoinformation and remote sensing methods.
The essentials in these fields are conveyed in mandatory core courses in the first term. They are deepened and expanded in two study projects which form the core of the program. In each project, students will work in small groups on a research topic involving an innovative planning or research task in a practically-oriented manner.
Work in these projects allows students to develop in management, communication and analytical skills –expertise which is essential for planners and is highly valued by employers.
The large number of choices complementing mandatory core courses allows for a specialization according to individual desires. Since the program is closely geared to the master’s programs of Landscape Architecture and Urban Ecosystem Sciences, exchange with these programs is possible.
The program is internationally oriented,
which means that mandatory core classes and most of the choice
courses are taught in English. Thus, it will become a vivid platform
for meeting and interacting between German and foreign students in
the field of environmental planning. Contacts these students will be
able to establish will endure after graduation, and will prove
beneficial in their future careers.
With the Master of Environmental Planning, students are offered a program which is highly innovative and stringent, but at the same time enjoyable, and leaves adequate room for personal development.
