About the course

The course introduces theories and concepts in the areas of human geography, urban theory and planning. The course provides both a general overview of planning thinking over time and a more focused theoretical part that prepares students to choose their own theoretical perspectives. We focus on some key themes related to planning and cities and study the different experiences and conditions of different groups in different urban contexts.
