All students are expected to follow the courses in the common core, to select two elective modules and to write a Master thesis. You will also be given the opportunity to select a number of individual courses in order to broaden your knowledge base or to specialize in a particular subdomain of urban studies.

You can individually pick courses from within the elective modules, but if this still isn't enough for you, you can also select courses from an additional list of individual electives. This list includes the following courses (in English, French or Dutch):

  • Advanced Seminar in Urban Studies 1 (3 ECTS)
