The Bartlett School
of Planning will offer a new undergraduate programme from September 2012: the BSc in Planning
and Real Estate.
The programme will deliver the educational
philosophy of the Bartlett School of Planning through innovative learning strategies. It will draw from a broad range of relevant theories, methodologies, skills and
techniques taken from both the social science and design disciplines and
apply these to critical challenges within the field of real estate development.
The new BSc will explore the interface between urban planning and property development, with modules dealing with critical Economic Concepts, Property and Planning Law, Valuation, and Finance and Investment Appraisal. The range of modules will enable students to develop their capacity for creative thinking and problem-solving whilst fostering independent, critical analysis of planning theory and practice.
With the addition of
the new BSc Planning and Real Estate our undergraduate offer expands
to three BSc programmes which share three streams of courses, integrating
theory with practice. The 'Urban Laboratory' stream emphasises the importance
of hands-on project work that provides students with an opportunity to put into
practice knowledge gained in the other streams, through design, regeneration
and local or strategic planning-related project work. The 'Understanding Urban
Change' and 'Managing Urban Change' streams focus respectively on the theory of
changing cities and on their management and planning, covering also the
practice-based activities associated with professional life.
Details of the new BSc in Planning and Real Estate, as well as our existing undergraduate programmes, the BSc in Urband Planning, Design and Development and the BSc in Urban Studies can be found on our undergraduate programmes page.
