The Master Program Urban Design is a consecutive international course for graduates with a bachelor degree in architecture, urban- and regional planning, landscape architecture or similar courses. Graduates holding bachelor degrees in other disciplines – particularly sociology – may also be enrolled, according to the individual case. The course is aimed at both national and international students and is held bilingually in English and German. The course starts each winter semester.

The two-year program is offered as a multi- and trans-disciplinary program in cooperation with the Institute of Architecture, the Institute of Urban- and Regional Planning, the Institute of Landscape Architecture and Environmental Planning and the Institute of Sociology. It was the first program of its kind in Germany. The program offers a unique opportunity to study Urban Design, a relatively young discipline in Germany,  from the perspective of four different disciplines. It offers compulsory courses conceptualized by the four participating institutes especially for the Urban Design students as well as an opportunity to attend original seminars conducted  by these institutes as compulsory optional courses. The focus is on teaching an integrated, multi-sectoral approach to finding creative solutions for the ever-changing local and global challenges of urbanization. In addition to architectural, urban planning and landscape architectural skills in theory and design, students also develop the ability for critical reflection regarding current tendencies and models in urban development and the changing conditions and stakeholder constellations.

In cooperation with Tongji University in Shanghai, China, the Urban Design course is also offered as a Dual Degree Master Program. This course is taught entirely in English. Participants will spend the first year of study in Berlin and the second year in Shanghai. More information can be found on the sites of the dual degree programs.
