For the M.Sc./Ph.D.-Programme European Urban Studies the name 'Bauhaus' is both a legacy and a challenge. Whereas at the beginning of the 20th century the focus lay on building and the relationship of material, form and function, the city has now become the object of study.
The postgraduate European Urban Studies programme takes up the functional and aesthetic challenges presented by dynamic and global transformations in the urban realm at the beginning of the 21st century. Dispersed urban landscapes, global markets, virtual space, powerful investors, over-stretched local authorities and post-modern ways of living all place new demands on creative and planning professionals as well as on urban researchers.
Since 1999 students from all over the world have been learning about and researching contemporary solutions for the social, functional and aesthetic problems of the city, and designing environments for the future based on the knowledge of contemporary urban lifestyles in the global post-industrial information and event society. The aim is to educate multi-disciplinary experts for the urban realm. The programme is international, bilingual and practice-oriented and leads to either a Master of Science (4 semesters) or a Ph.D. (6-8 semesters). It unites four principal fields of study in a single unique 'Weimar Profile': urban design, urban sociology, project development and urban and regional planning.
Application is open to all graduates of the folllowing courses: architecture, urban and regional planning, landscape architecture, geography, urban sociology and comparable spatially oriented disciplines. The application deadline for the doctorate programme is the 31st of March, 2004, while for the master's programme it is the 25th of June, 2004.
