MA Cities, Space, and Culture

Shandon Skyline

This is a new one-year taught Master’s degree starting in September 2015 on both a full-time and part-time basis at University College Cork. The aim is to provide a broad academic and professional training in urban, social and cultural geography. The programme will offer an interdisciplinary lens through which to explore a diverse range of contemporary urban, social and cultural issues, such as: urban policy and innovation; the creative economy; difference and divisions; politics and identity; culture, heritage and the built environment; gender and sexuality; technology and social media; and, everyday practice and experience in the city. It provides students with the skills and knowledge to be effective innovators in a diverse range of urban policy and projects. This MA is designed for those who wish to pursue careers in the public, private and non-governmental sectors, or who wish to pursue PhD research in the field of urban, social or cultural geography. Developing graduates who can critically analyse a range of urban, social and cultural issues, and communicate knowledge in diverse ways, including both traditional and digital media, is a core objective for this programme. The programme is student-focussed and research-led.
