Overview

In the 21st century, cities and urban areas are facing increasing challenges associated with flood risk, coastal erosion and sea level rises. In many growing areas these are coupled with challenges of demographic growth and urban spread. While there are many university postgraduate degrees that focus on local planning legislation, there is no identifiable course that focuses specifically on how communities respond to challenges that cities are facing today. This programme will be of interest to students wishing to address broader urban issues and engage with communities.

The Master of Urban Resilience and Renewal (MURR) will focus on:

  • the urban renewal of Christchurch, a city that faces many of these issues as it recovers from the 2010/11 earthquakes
  • how communities respond to challenges that cities are facing today
  • community engagement with students engaging with community groups and local government not only in the compulsory courses but also through their chosen research project.
