UNICA Euromaster in Urban Studies



The urban Millenia has arrived. Now the majority of the world’s population lives in cities. Urban culture is reshaping the world. Urbanisation and globalization are two sides of the same coin

4CITIES is a two-year interdisciplinary master’s programme in urban studies, organised within UNICA, the Network of Universities from the Capitals of Europe, financially supported by the European Commission

4CITIES incorporates sociology, geography, history, cultural studies, and humanistic urban studies

4CITIES will present you with ways of analyzing and understanding the specific character of cities. Thus, it will prepare you to participate in the resolving of urban problems and the invention of new strategies to describe and address the process of globalization

4CITIES offers you the possibility to study on location, to go from capital to capital as a group, starting in Brussels, moving on to Vienna, then Copenhagen, and finishing the programme with an intensive course in Madrid. Fieldtrips to other cities are part of the curriculum during each stay

4CITIES requires that you take your exams at the end of each semester. The majority of the final semester will be situated at the location of your own choice, relevant to your work in your master’s thesis

4CITIES opens your possibilities for you to work on urban problems in both the private or public sector. Potential job fields are: urban policy advising, project management, planning, research, teaching, and media
