The new University of Strathclyde MSc in Global Sustainable Cities is an innovative programme focused on tackling major urban opportunities and issues.
The course provides graduates with the skills and understanding to become leaders in the design and delivery of sustainable city strategies. Uniquely, the Masters in Global Sustainable Cities is based on real world experience gained from international sustainable city projects.
Global Sustainable Cities is designed to give you a holistic understanding of how cities work and provide you with the tools to redesign city systems, raise finance, and gain political and community support for transformative city strategies and projects. You will demonstrate your knowledge through high quality work placements rather than a traditional dissertation.
