Malmö University is an innovative, urban and international institute of higher education, located in the centre of Malmö. We have around 1,800 employees and 24,000 students. Our research and education are characterised by the role we believe a university should play in an open society — to contribute to sustainability and equality in a scientifically grounded way with external partners and stakeholders. Identifying and addressing the challenges of the future are of highest priority. Our researchers and students work collaboratively to create, share and spread knowledge in order to understand, explain and develop society — both locally and globally.
Department of Urban Studies
The department of Urban Studies is characterised by three core features: dynamic interdisciplinary research; a professional organisation; and a highly qualified faculty. The department comprises around 95 researchers and teachers, as well as 2000 students. We have a strong emphasis on theory-driven empirical research and teaching informed by the social and behavioral sciences.
We are building collaboration within four main intersecting themes: Housing, Real Estate and Urban Renewal; Transport, Mobilities and Urban Business Development; Risk Management and Urban Ecology; and Work and Organisational Psychology and Organisation Studies. Across these themes, we unite around cultural, economic, material, social and discursive processes of change. Furthermore, we collaborate with our well-established networks within the public sector, the corporate sector and civil society.
The department is in an expansive phase, as we seek to develop new research and build our educational strength, benefitting from recently having given official University status and the opportunity to create a new master’s programme titled Urban studies: Urban Business an Development – Real Estate and Transport.
Urban Studies is part of the Faculty of Culture and Society, which is a multidisciplinary faculty that includes the School of Arts and Communication, the Department of Global Political Studies and the Department of Urban Studies. Read more here.
