Why study this Master’s degree?

The Master's degree is naturally part of the past, present and future of the University of Deusto. It links up with a long history of the presence of Urban Studies and City Sciences at the University.

In 2008, the idea to create a specific centre arose from the observation of the difficulties in implementing sustainable human development and carrying out the corresponding development agendas in cities and regions. After a long period analysing similar initiatives in different parts of the world, Deusto Cities Lab was launched on 22 February 2016, with the approval of the Rector's Order granting it a charter as a University Chair. This Chair has its horizon in 2030, linked to the Agenda 2030, the Sustainable Development Goals and the New Urban Agenda. This master’s degree is part of this tradition and horizon.

Why study this Master’s degree?

The contents of the Master's course mainly address one of the main social challenges facing society today: the acceleration of urbanisation at the global level, together with the threats and opportunities inherent in it.
In this context, the Master's degree is linked to the major scientific and academic debates on the subject, as well as to the key political-institutional forums and major initiatives that have been taken at the global level, for example: the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals and the Agenda 2030 (2015). The proposed degree is particularly related to the challenges contained in Goal 11: Sustainable cities and communities and is aligned with the fundamental aspects of the New Urban Agenda (2016) promoted by UN Habitat. The overall aim is to implement these agendas in the day-to-day governance of cities.

On the other hand, the master’s syllabus has been designed in line with the key aspects of the European Union's Cohesion Policy, both in its regional and urban dimensions, especially with the EU's Urban Agenda (2016).

This degree has a new cross-cutting and cross-sector approach, and a democratic and transformative governance of cities in order to enable their sustainable urban development (environmental, social, economic and cultural aspects) and to generate urban ecosystems for transformative innovation.
