Urbanistika


The 2-year Master’s program in Urban Studies combines rigorous academic research with intensive field-work. The program is situated at the trans-disciplinary crossroad of critical urban studies, urbanism and urban planning, architecture theory, sociology and urban ethnography. Our students have previous academic background in architecture and/or humanities. Integrating critical interrogation and experimental practice, the program has a triple focus on social uses, spatial programs and urban forms.

The form of assignments includes term-long research studios, intensive workshops, lectures, seminars, and field trips. The distinctive mark of the Master in Urban Studies is its reliance on theoretically informed action in the field. We take students’ effort seriously: the program engages ‘real’ actors and create opportunities for public presentation, discussion and publishing of best works.

The Master’s program is fully in English and it has a strong international orientation. We cooperate with a network of partner institutions in Europe and we are connected to regional partners in Finland, Baltic countries and Russia. Curriculum includes number of workshops and lecture courses by international scholars and practitioners. Students also participate in hosting the annual international conference Urban and Landscape Days in Tallinn.

The education prepares students to engage with urban issues at the intersection between design practice, political practice and theoretical knowledge. The program prepares graduates for further study at the PhD level.

Design & Crafts kursus pakub tudengitele küllaga vabadust aga ka vastutust. Kursuse paindlikkus julgustab tudengeid proovima erinevaid võimalusi oma ideede teostuseks ja õppima uusi tehnikaid ning meetodeid oma spetsialiseerumisest väljaspool. Õppeainete ja töötubade vaheldusrikkus pakub mitmekesist haridust, andes tudengitele palju otsustusõigust edasiseks eneseteostuseks.

Meie ehte- ja sepakunsti osakond on väga tugev kaasegse ehtekunsti maastikul. Ma ei õppinud mitte ainult tehnilisi ja kunstilisi lähenemisi, vaid ka ehtekunsti filosoofiat. Lisaks sellele, et Kadri Mälk ja Tanel Veenre on silmapaistvad kunstnikud ja õppejõud, annavad nad ka väärtuslikku ärialast nõu, nagu näiteks kunstniku galerii etikett, kuvandi loomine, proffesionaalsus jne.
