This minor provides an excellent opportunity to acquire knowledge about and insight in Urban History, with a focus on Spatial History in the three core courses.
Within the programme we deal with questions like: How did a town develop? What plans existed for city development and who made certain choices? How did a town relate to its natural environment, like water bodies, parks and the surrounding countryside? What can urban public space be, how do we use and experience it, how is it designed and constructed, and how is it transformed?
