Regeneration Studies (MSc)
Joinlty run with the Cardiff School of Social Sciences, the MSc aims to add a teaching dimension to the research collaboration between the two schools which is provided by the Regeneration Institute. This Institute provides a focus for the regeneration-related research activities undertaken in both schools.
The course provides students with an opportunity to examine the range of social science issues covered by regeneration studies, especially the interplay between economy, state and civil society. The programme of study will also furnish students with an opportunity to review debates, investigate substantive issues and acquire problem-solving skills through project-based teamwork, as well as develop the analytical and social skills which are increasingly being sought in today's rapidly growing regeneration-related professions.
The modules are assessed through continuous assessment (a variety of seminars, essays, project work and practical exercises) and examinations.
