Specialization in urban planning

Master's students seeking a career in urban planning and design can specialize in urban planning. In most cases, they will meet the Baden-Württemberg requirements for a traineeship (Referendariat) in urban planning and one – if not all – requirements for registration in the Baden-Württemberg Chamber of Architects list of architects/urban planners.

Decisions on registration are made by the Chamber of Architects according to the merits of the individual case. Information can be obtained from chambers of architects. 

  • 23 of the Examination Regulations for the Master's Program in Architecture and Urban Planning provides for an "urban planning" specialization to be indicated, on request, in the master's degree certificate. For this, master's students must have completed at least one module per sub-group from the urban planning specialization modules [217].
