Spatial planning requires the ability to balance different interests. The education provides you the tools to make these considerations. You will learn to ask relevant and scientifically grounded questions about changes and trends in rural areas and cities, regions and nations.

During the education you develop your skills in advanced quantitative and qualitative methods, such as geographic information systems (GIS) and interview techniques. They help you understand and analyse societal phenomenon.
