Westminster set for masters in sustainable development

  • Comment

The University of Westminster is planning to launch a masters degree in sustainability in the coming academic year.

Westminster's head of architecture Kate Heron said the course will be interdisciplinary and cover 'the full gamut of sustainable development'. It is linked into issues of property and development and is designed to be of particular benefit to property developers anxious to avoid future punitive taxation on non-sustainable development. 'Most interest is coming from architects, ' said Heron, 'although it's not primarily aimed at architects. It's aimed at new urban development. It's quite timely.'

Course director Chris Marsh concedes that 'there are other sustainability courses on offer in the UK but they tend to have a more ecological or political slant'. The Westminster masters degree is the only course of its kind offered by a built environment school that is multi-disciplined and 'designed to cultivate a broader base of thinking'.
