In our program, students will focus on the contemporary themes that can be studied in the new urban contexts amd take professional courses, which have been developed by our faculty together with the Environmental and Urban Studies program. These courses will provide students with practical knowledge from such fields as Urban Planing, Urban Design, Urban and Regional Development and Environmental Sustainability.
