- Offered for Year: 2019/20
- Module Leader(s): Mr Aidan Oswell
- Owning School: Architecture, Planning & Landscape
- Teaching Location: Newcastle City Campus
|Semester 1 Credit Value:||10|
To develop knowledge about ideas and alternative policy approaches in the field of regeneration (regional, urban and rural). To develop a sound understanding of both the potential and limitations of regeneration policy, as well as the wider socio-economic, political and culture contexts within which such policy is both developed and applied.
This is an individual, project-based module. The framework for the project is relatively flexible but will need to be fully discussed and agreed with the tutor in advance. Projects will need to directly relate to one or more of the underlying themes covered in the lecture programme. But the context used to explore and illustrate these themes can be flexible; students may wish to either stay within the content covered during contact sessions or draw directly on their own experiences/areas of interest.
