EGS5065W - City Research Studio: Research Practice & Methods

23 credits at NQF level 9

Entry Requirements:

Acceptance into the MPhil, specialising in Urban Studies.

Course Outline:

The City Research Studio is the cornerstone of this Master's course. It has been built as a learning context in which students experiment with multiple forms of urban knowledge, expertise, and research practice beyond the conventional classroom context. It serves two key purposes: It provides a structured space in the degree for exploration and engagement in the City (in Cape Town primarily). It is also a context to engage with methods, and experiment with research practice and writing. Through an interactive pedagogical approach, it engages through practice with key debates in urban studies.
