Cities are simultaneously considered engines of economic growth and social, cultural, and political opportunities, as well as places where problems and vulnerabilities such as insecurity and inequality concentrate. Consequently, we need academics who are able to conduct high quality research on urban processes. As urban issues and processes occur in multiple and intersecting academic domains, addressing these requires a multidisciplinary approach. The Research Master in Urban Studies (RMUS) combines the disciplines of urban geography, economic geography, urban and regional planning, and urban sociology to provide a multidisciplinary and comprehensive approach to studying urban change and the opportunities and challenges this produces.

Na de studie
In addition, a few other alumni have temporary positions as junior lecturer or researcher in academic institutes, with the prospects of perspectives on an extendedlonger academic career.
Also outside academia, we find several alumni in positions in which they either conduct research or are involved in research management.
Several other alumni work in policy practice, for a municipality, a province or a national ministry. In these positions they usually combine policy-making and policy advice with conducting or managing research. Some of our alumni have chosen for a career in the private sector. The businesses they work for are logically related have a logical relation to the field of urban studies: real estate development, project development and consultancy or advice for environmental development projects, for example.
